Personality characteristics and aesthetic preference for chaotic curves
Staudek, T., Linkov, V. (2004). Personality characteristics and aesthetic preference for chaotic curves. Journal of Mathematics and Design, 4(1): 297–304.
The article uncovers relationship between aesthetic preference for mathematically generated fractal curves with considerable aesthetic appeal ? chaotic attractors ? and personality of their appraisers. The examined character dimensions are those described by the “Big Five” factors of personality, attractors are classified according to the Lyapunov exponent and fractal dimension. An expansion of chaotic systems into psychodiagnostics is later proposed.
