Relationship between electrocardiogram-based features and personality traits: Machine learning approach.

Ann Noninvasive Electrocardiol 2021 Nov 27:e12919. Epub 2021 Nov 27.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia.

Background: Based on the known relationship between the human emotion and standard surface electrocardiogram (ECG), we explored the relationship between features extracted from standard ECG recorded during relaxation and seven personality traits (Honesty/humility, Emotionality, eXtraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Openness, and Disintegration) by using the machine learning (ML) approach which learns from the ECG-based features and predicts the appropriate personality trait by adopting an automated software algorithm.

Methods: A total of 71 healthy university students participated in the study. For quantification of 62 ECG-based parameters (heart rate variability, as well as temporal and amplitude-based parameters) for each ECG record, we used computation procedures together with publicly available data and code.
