Stereotypes

Melissa Dahl of New York Magazine points to a Park et al. study where they looked for correlations between facebook users’ predicted personality traits (based on a variety of information) and the words they use in their statuses. I uhh… kind of think the researchers probably predicted agreeableness a little too well. This word cloud is definitely the funniest thing I have seen today.
