Found this in the latest issue of Psychology Today.
What can you learn froma personal Web site? More than if you met the person for a few minutes and about as much as from a glance around their bedroom, according to a University of Texas, Austin study. Subjects who rated the personalities of 89 strangers via personal Web pages most accurately assessed the person’s curiousity, creativity and friendliness. Least apparent online: emotional stability.
Well, duh. I mean, to cruise someone’s personal site takes a long time if you’re doing it right. Of course you’re going to learn more than if you just met them for a few minutes.
Still, it’s nice to see it get noticed in a psych mag.
