We Are What We Watch: Movies Contents Predicts the Personality of Their Social Media Fans

We investigate the associations between movie preferences and personality in a dataset containing user-generated plot keywords and Big-Five personality measures obtained from their Facebook fans. We find that plot keywords predict fan personalities above-and-beyond other variables, and reveal specific associations between the movies’ psychological themes and their fans’ personalities.
