The Relationship between Personality and Social Media Communications

Faculty mentor: Tsu-Ming Chiang

Social media has become an indispensable source for communication. However, public debates about the benefits and potential issues of the social network are polarized. Social media is suggested to be correlated with increased negative emotions, such as depression. These results reflect that the functions of social media are multifaceted. Forms of social media include electronic communication to share information in public or send personal messages in private. The popularity and frequent usage of social media have emerged to become an interesting topic. The present study is designed to explore the relationship between a person’s personality and communication styles through online social media. The study examined three types of personalities: introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts. Data (N=529, Female = 442) were collected from college students through an online survey. The results showed statistically significant differences between the Face to Face Communication and Interact Virtual scores. Implications will be shared.
Yi-Shan Chen was born in Taiwan and studies at Georgia College & State University as an exchange student from the University of Taipei. She is a Counseling Psychology major and bilingual. After graduating from college, she would like to pursue graduate studies in cultures and international relations, potentially as an interpreter and translator between Chinese and English languages.
