New Facebook App Called Spheres Creates Unique Personality Images
Spheres, a new facebook canvas app, generates artful, iconic images of users' personalities for sharing on facebook and other social media.
By: E. Olson Writing
Many of the trait dimensions in the images Spheres generates, like Outgoing-Shy or Rebellious-Conformist, correspond to personality traits studied by personality theories and tests. The developers chose other traits, however, like Centered-Discontent, to appeal to people who want to share images of their personalities on popular online social sites. Spheres images depict users’ traits on these polar dimensions:
Centered - Discontent
Outgoing - Shy
Practical - Cerebral
Daring - Cautious
Impulsive - Controlled
Rebellious - Conformist
Spheres is easy to use. Users simply rate themselves on each of the six personality dimensions. For each trait, the app provides guidelines and examples. Spheres is, however, not a personality test, as the developers point out. The app is intended to give users a way of expressing things about themselves through a graphic that they know but find difficult to express in words.
