Quick history of Personality Insights

 

The history of language-based Personality Insights starts long before IBM launched Watson Personality Insights. The story begins in the 1990s with the seminal work of Receptiviti Co-Founder, Prof. James W. Pennebaker at the University of Texas, who was investigating how analysis of writing could predict mental and physical health, personalities, social behaviours, and cognitive processes. Since those early days, our science has been the basis for thousands of academic publications in a variety of fields covering topics such as personality, cognitive behaviour therapy, leadership styles, suicide intervention, deception, and more. 

Receptiviti's foundation of validated research

For years, we have worked closely with academics around the world, supporting and contributing to their research, gathering data, and continuously improving the informative and predictive quality of our platform. Today, Receptiviti is the global leader in language psychology, with customers across industries spanning technology, financial services, human capital and recruiting, mental health, marketing, market research, and more.
