Individual differences play a major role in human-computer interaction. In particular, personality shapes how we process and act on the world, and how users perceive and accept technology. Nevertheless, there is limited evidence on the impact of different personality types in graphical user interface (GUI). Moreover, there is limited work on implicit personality assessment from biofeedback. To approach these issues, we propose the study and inclusion of psychological variables from the Five-Factor Model and the Locus of Control in GUI design to provide a better user experience (UX) with a personality-based adaptive GUI which detects psychological traits from biofeedback. Participants (N=100) will use scales NEO Personality Inventory Revised (NEO PI-R) and Levenson Multidimensional Locus of Control (LMLoC) for psychological evaluation, System Usability Scale (SUS), Technology Acceptance Model 3 (TAM3), and NASA Task Load Index (NASA-TLX) for UX assessment, and a Bitalino for biofeedback acquisition. A personality-based adaptive brain-computer interface carries the promise to improve UX design techniques and personality classification based on biofeedback by allowing designers better understand their audience while taking advantage of physiological computing to implicitly collect users’ psychological constructs.
