WHAT WE SAY, SAYS WHO WE ARE
We take seconds to make an impression of another person by looking at their photos. But to me, that’s judging a book by its cover.
Within a few seconds of conversation, our brain starts to makes sense of the words & expressions, the tone & manner, the intonations, the implicit & the explicit expressions. Seconds again, but this time around it not the cover of the book. It’s as good as the book.
That’s how powerful ‘what we say’ is. A few seconds into listening to a person one can assess the personality. For Artificial Intelligence to do the same, these few seconds are a couple of minutes. But that’s about it. An AI program can estimate personalities of people with less that 3 minutes of voice analysis. with as little as a few hundred words or as many as one has for analysis.
My own experience is that even voice assessment has its limitations. An advertisement and often even a speech, is way too well prepared to qualify as natural language and therefore by extension a poor representation of natural personality traits. What’s really needed is a sample of voice that gets as close as one can to natural meaningful utterances.
Unsurprisingly, Mentza with its 20-minute live audio conversations fits the bill closer than what most audio samples would. It’s the reason why, we put AI to work and used samples of our speakers conversations to generate AI assessment across a multitude of factors like motivations, influence styles, story telling styles and the mindset of seeking or sharing.
WHY NATURAL CONVERSATIONS HELP ASSESS PERSONALITY TRAITS?
The words and phrases we use to express ourselves is a mix of ‘deliberate choice’ and ‘implicit preferences’. In natural conversations, as compared to written text or recorded audios, the usage of words that reflect ‘implicit preferences’ is far higher.
On a platform like Mentza, where people freely engage in meaningful conversations over a 20-minute period, what we say therefore offers potent data for self-analysis of one’s personality in a conversation. Mentza has built a proprietary ECHO-AI engine to analyse an individuals personality in conversations across several aspects of one’s personality like – leadership style. Story telling style, Influence style and so on.
The first of the many, that will come your way, is the ECHO-AI-LEADERSHIP STYLE.
A word of caution: Please note that Mentza Echo is based on your last few conversations on Mentza. These scores could change over time because of a wide variety of factors. Use these scores as a guide to improve effectiveness of your style.
MENTZA-ECHO-AI OF CAPTAIN AMERICA
The AI analysed natural conversations from Mentza cross multiple dimensions to establish 12-different leadership styles. These 12 Echoes of Leadership Styles, are distinct personalities that capture the diverse ways in which we get motivated to share, the nature of our stories and the subtle ways in which we influence those that are in a circle with us. The reverberation that these echoes hold are our very personal profile, analysed by AI, and based entirely on audio conversations that we had on Mentza.
