Personality is a fundamental basis of human behavior. Personality affects the interaction and preferences of an individual. People are required to take a personality test to find out their personality. Social media is a place where users express themselves to the world. Posts made by users of social media can be analyzed to obtain their personal information. This experiment uses text classification to predict personality based on text written by Twitter users. The languages used are English and Indonesian. Classification methods implemented are Naive Bayes, K-Nearest Neighbors and Support Vector Machine. Testing results showed Naive Bayes slightly outperformed the other methods.
