"Conventional style-checkers identify a single set of 'bad' expressions, and propose alternative 'good expressions'," say the developers. "In contrast, our style-checker knows that a particular word may be good for projecting one personality type, but bad for another."
The prototype of the personality style checker... includes three aspects of personality: tough minded, extrovert and emotional. The user is able to adjust each of these qualities from low through to high, and the program will check the user's written email and suggest changes in the text of the email to more closely match the personality the user wishes to convey.
The suggested replacements can be accepted or rejected, as with a conventional spell checker.
Reported - in all seriousness, it would seem - on abc.net.au.
