Time, place and other features of using a smartphone can say a lot about its owner. Researchers at the Royal Melbourne University of Technology (MRIT) have published a paper that studies human behavior based on how it uses its smartphone. Reports about it Engadget.
The small sensor installed today in each device, the accelerometer, helped scientists uncover user patterns. It is he who records how many steps you take, or turns on the screen when you pick up the phone. According to the researchers, information from the accelerometer is just as important as the statistics on the use of various applications.

Comparing physical activity with personality traits, the MRIT team came to several conclusions:
- “Pleasant” people have a random activity pattern and are more busy on weekend evenings.
- Sensitive women tend to check their phones until late at night, sensitive men do the opposite.
- More resourceful and curious people make and receive fewer phone calls than others.
Scientists believe that the data collected can be used for more accurate recommendations of friends in social networks, search for partners in dating services and in advertising targeting. Also, the authors of the study say that such information will help people better understand themselves. Further research is planned to be repeated with a larger sample of respondents in order to obtain more reliable results.
