The choice of phone you use may be indicative of your personality more than you think. Scientists recently found that Android users are much more humble, kinder and honest than their rivals – iPhone users.
In the study, people in two groups (iPhone users and Android users) completed a questionnaire. Each question related to their personality. iPhone users most often chose responses that weren’t as kind, humble and honest as Android users did.
In addition to the personality questionnaire, the research team analyzed the apps each user downloaded and used. There was a clear discrepancy between what iPhone users downloaded and what Android users did.
What’s interesting is that you would think more women who fall under the humble, kind, and honest category, but actually, they were more likely to own an Apple. Men are more like to have Android phones, and well, they fell into the group with people who are more humble, kind and honest.
In addition to these personality traits, it seems as though iPhone users are more extroverted as well. I guess that does make sense, since iPhone users do tend to talk a big game about their choice in smartphone.
It’s obvious our phones are a big part of us, and we’re going to make decisions based on our likes and dislikes with each type of phone. What do you believe is true of your smartphone as it relates to your personality? It is something interesting to consider, isn’t it?
