Abstract

This paper uses a User-as-Wizard approach to evaluate how people apply diversity to a set of recommendations. In particular, it considers how diversity is applied for a recipient with high or low Openness to Experience, a personality trait from the Five Factor Model. While there was no effect of the personality trait on the degree of diversity applied, there seems to be a trend in the way in which it was applied. Maximal categorical diversity (across genres) was more likely to be applied to those with high Openness to Experience, at the expense of maximal thematic diversity (within genres).
