Personality Recognition consists in the automatic classification of authors' personality traits, that can be compared against gold standard annotation obtained by means of the big5 personality test. In recent years, the application of Computational Personality Recognition proved to be a valuable resource to analyse people's interactions in Social Network sites and for Social Computing in general. In the Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition (Shared Task), organizers are going to release two datasets, one sampled from Facebook and one from the Essays corpus, annotated with gold standard personality labels. The workshop is structured as a shared task, that will allow participants to compare the results of their analyses, discuss and share ideas on a common benchmark.
