Users of the main smartphone operating systems (iOS, Android) differ only little in personality

Friedrich M. Götz, Stefan Stieger, Ulf-Dietrich Reips, Susana Jiménez-Murcia
2017 PLoS ONE  
Focusing on Big Five personality traits in a broader scope, in addition to smartphone users, Study 2 also examined users of the main computer operating systems (i.e., Mac OS, Windows).  ...  In both studies, very few significant differences were found, all of which were of small or even tiny effect size mostly disappearing after sociodemographics had been controlled for.  ...  Given their overlapping, yet complementary design, we believe that if the results of Study 1 and Study 2 converge, one could claim with some confidence that indeed, personality differences between users  ...
