Personality in Daily Life: Multi-situational Physiological Signals Reflect Big-Five Personality Traits
The popularity of wearable physiological recording devices has opened up new possibilities for the assessment of personality traits in everyday life. Compared with traditional questionnaires or laboratory assessments, wearable device-based measurements can collect rich data about individual physiological activities in real-life situations without interfering with normal life, enabling a more comprehensive description of individual differences. The present study aimed to explore the assessment of individuals’ Big-Five personality traits by physiological signals in daily life situations. A commercial bracelet was used to track the heart rate (HR) data from 80 college students (all male) enrolled in a special training program with a strictly-controlled daily schedule for 10 consecutive working days. Their HR activities were divided into five daily situations (morning exercise, morning classes, afternoon classes, free time in the evening, and self-study situations) according to their daily schedule.
This is a open access dataset of everyday Heart Rate recordings for Personality assessment.
