Wiki Version:
<p>Behavorists claim that there are no personality types. Personality Neuroscience (DeYoung 2010, Sampaio 2014) shows that personality traits of the Big Five (John 1990) correlate with physical structures in the brain.</p> <p>In order to proof behaviorism wrong we only have to establish that there are at least two distinct personality types. In order to make it relevant for behaviorism we want to make sure that we only look at specific external behavior. For this reason we have decided to test non-verhal behavior. This also prevents any contamination through verbal suggestions.</p> <p>What we did, is that we video taped one woman pushing ten other women and we asked three different groups of people to watch the video and answer a single question about what they saw. The video can be seen here:</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5qgGnqykO0" rel="nofollow">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5qgGnqykO0</a></p> <p>The three groups had three different questions. Group 1 was a general group and the group was asked which two women react the fastest. Group 2 was a trained group and the group was asked which two women have a specific personality type. The third group was once again a general group and the question for this group was: which two women react more impulsive than the other women.</p> <p>Results for the group 1 are: <img alt="enter image description here" src="https://image.ibb.co/dcn8kk/Q1_push_1.png"></p> <p>Results for group 2 are: <img alt="enter image description here" src="https://image.ibb.co/bVjzrQ/Group2.png"></p> <p>Results for group 3 are: <img alt="enter image description here" src="https://image.ibb.co/dJVQfk/Impulsief_250.png"></p> <p>The conclusion is that people do recognize which two women react the fastest or are the most impulsive, but do not recognize people enough if asked for a general personality type.</p> <p>Besides people's judgement of the video we have also measured the time it took for the two fastest women to react to the push and compared that with the reaction times of the other eight women. The two fastest women react 100% faster than the third fastest (1 second versus 2 seconds reaction time) and a whole lot faster than most of the other women as can be seen in the data file.</p> <p>Furthermore, we saw a big difference between how people react to being pushed in a closed setting with only a few people around and in the public setting of a training room. For that reason we now also have started to test people in a public setting. Although, we have only started this test and with this test it take a lot more time to get enough respondents, the preliminary results also show that there are big differences which can be explained by differences in personality types only.</p> <p>(We have added the data on the Neurogram model to the data files. Here you can see how 372 people out of 393 people agreed with the personality type our computer model came up with and agreed with the rejection of the other eight types in line with what the computer model came up with.)</p>
