Kosinki attributes this to the flawed system of collecting such information used in the past by psychologists and researchers alike.

Personality is usually measured using surveys in which people answer questions about themselves. But people often answer these questions incorrectly, based on comparing themselves to their peers and even false self image . The result is that information collected is many times false.

So what is the correct way to gain such information. Social media analysis it seems is the way forward in this department. It is much more difficult to fake say, your pattern of likes on Facebook, which is one of the methods used by Kosinki to reach his informed conclusions.
