PAPER: The personality systems framework: Current theory and development
• Most personality psychologists are systems theorists and draw on general systems theory.
• The personality systems framework covers: (a) personality’s definition, (b) its parts, (c) organization, (d) development.
• I illustrate the four topics of the framework by drawing on examples from the theory of personal intelligence.
• The personality systems framework draws lightly on theories from the field to enhance its depiction of personality.
• The personality systems framework describes the discipline and provides formal models of personality."
Similarity is a word that has different meanings for different persons or companies, it exactly depends on how mathematically is defined. In case you had not noticed, recommender systems are morphing to .......... compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry since years, with low success rates until now because they mostly use the BIG 5 to assess personality and the Pearson correlation coefficient to calculate similarity.
The BIG 5 (Big Five) normative personality test is obsolete. The HEXACO (a.k.a. Big Six) is another oversimplification. Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the BIG 5 model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity. I calculate similarity in personality patterns with (a proprietary) pattern recognition by correlation method. It takes into account the score and the trend to score of any pattern. Also it takes into account women under hormonal treatment because several studies showed contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users. "Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle".
If you want to be first in the "personalization arena" == Personality Based Recommender Systems, you should understand the ............ Online Dating Industry first of all!
Please see: "How to calculate personality similarity between users"
Short answer: the key is the ENSEMBLE!
(the whole set of different valid possibilities)
Worldwide there are over 5,000 online dating sites, no one uses the 16PF petsonality test, no one is scientifically proven yet, and no one can show you compatibility distribution curves, i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.
