This caught my eye, today:
"Android users are more honest than iPhone users say psychologists, in a study published this week which is the first to find a link between personality and smartphone type. Four out of five UK adults now have a smartphone with the market split 50/50 between the two rival operating systems."
"Smartphones' connection with our personalities is so marked that psychologists say smartphones have become an extension of ourselves.
Not only can they be personalised to our preferences, but even the type of smartphone reveals clues about who we are. Researchers gave over 500 smartphone users several questionnaires about themselves and their attitudes towards their mobile phone."
The survey goes on:
A comparison of both Android and iPhone users revealed that iPhone users are more likely to be:
Younger More than twice as likely to be women More likely to see their phone as a status object More extraverted Less concerned about owning devices favoured by most people
In contrast, Android users were more likely to be:
Male Older More honest More agreeable Less likely to break rules for personal gain Less interested in wealth and status
I wonder how many people would agree?
