About the Project

Programmer Personality helps you to understand who you are
– and us to understand programmers.


Programmer Personality is a research project at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology - one of Germany's leading technical universities.

Our goal is to understand programmers and their personalities to provide the basis for building better online experiences. To achieve this, we built this app that allows programmers to get insights to their personality and to their GitHub profile. The acquired data allows us to compare GitHub usage patterns with personality traits and understand how personality affects these usage patterns. This will be the first step to provide more insights on the relationships between personality and usage of online social networks.

Meet the Team

We're a team of researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Our mission is to explore programmers personality traits and their GitHub usage.
