Applications that use gaming elements to harness human intelligence to tackle computational tasks are increasing in popularity and may be termed as Human Computation Games (HCGs). Recently, HCGs have been utilized to offer a more engaging experience for mobile information sharing. Yet, there is a lack of research that examines individuals' personality and behaviors related to HCGs. This understanding may be important in identifying HCG features that suit different personality orientations.

In a study of 205 participants, results revealed that personality traits of extraversion and openness, as well as perceived information accuracy and relevancy were significant in predicting intention to play. Implications of our work are also discussed.
