Android users are more humble, honest than iPhone users, says study
According to a new research, People who use Android smartphones may have greater levels of Honesty and Humility than iPhone users. Researchers also found that women were twice more likely to own an iPhone than an Android Phone.
“This study provides new insights into personality differences between different types of smartphone users,” said Heather Shaw, from the University of Lincoln in the U.K.
Insights into personality
“Smartphone selection is the most fundamental level of smartphone personalization, and even this can educate us a considerable measure concerning the user,” she included.
Specialists led two investigations of identity contrasts amongst iPhone and Android smartphone users. In the main study, the researchers requested that 240 members finish a poll on qualities they connect with users of each smartphone brand.
In the second study they tried these generalizations against genuine identity qualities of 530 Android and iPhone smartphone owners. The outcomes from the principal study demonstrated that Android users are seen to have more noteworthy levels of trustworthiness and modesty, pleasantness and openness personality traits but are seen as less extroverted than iPhone users.
The outcomes from the second study demonstrated that a large portion of the identity generalizations did not happen in all actuality, as just genuineness and modesty was found in more noteworthy sums inside Android clients. Notwithstanding, scientists found that ladies were twice more inclined to claim an iPhone than an Android Phone.
When measuring the characteristic ‘avoidance of similarity’ which describes whether people like having the same products as others, Android users avoided similarity more than iPhone users.
Finally, iPhone users thought it was more important to have a high-status phone than Android users.
“It is becoming more and more apparent that smartphones are becoming a mini digital version of the user, and many of us don’t like it when other people use our phones because it can reveal so much about us,” said Ms. Shaw. — PTI
