Abstract / Description

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a collection of techniques for personality development. Meta programmes, which are habitual ways of inputting, sorting and filtering the information found in the world around us, are a vital factor in NLP. Differences in meta programmes result in significant differences in behaviour from one person to another. Personality types can be recognized through utilizing and analysing meta programmes. There are different methods to predict personality types based on meta programmes. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is currently considered as one of the most popular and reliable methods. In this study, a new machine learning method has been developed for personality type prediction based on the MBTI. The performance of the new methodology presented in this study has been compared to other existing methods and the results show better accuracy and reliability. The results of this study can assist NLP practitioners and psychologists in regards to identification of personality types and associated cognitive processes.
