Online behavior indicative of personality?

It seesm that online testing is a rapidly developing field of practice. However, growing research suggests - as postulated in the Chapter - that people's behavior in cyberspace might directly reflect personality characteristics. In other words, online behavior could be exploited to assess personality - perhaps even better (as more authentic behaviors involved) than many personality questionnaires.

See two recently published studies related to this subject:

Schmitt, K. L., Dayanim, S., & Matthias, S. (2008). Personal homepage construction as an expression of social development. Developmental Psychology, 44, 496-506.

Back, M. D., Schmukle, S. C., & Egloff, B. (2008). How extraverted is Inferring personality from e-mail addresses. Journal of Research in Personality, 42, 1116-1122.

Thanks to the authors for providing the references to the most current publications. Interesting: I've learnt about the study of the Leipzig researchers (correlations between the character traits & e-mail accounts) in a brief publication on a Russian-language political (?) portal, AND THE SAME DAY I've found the link to the work by Back, M. D., Schmukle, S. C., & Egloff, B. (2008)
here on the blog.
A serendipity effect, isn't it?

No serendipity, Alexander, just good scientific coincidence...

I intend to post updates on the blog as soon as any new and relevant scientific finding is published...
