A Text Analysis Website Determines Whether You're Being A B**ch

A new service detects and interprets a message's emotion and tone

MOST POPULAR

If you've ever spent an evening analysing a Whatsapp from your other half ('When they say 'okay' do they actually mean 'okay' or are they in a mood?') or questioned whether a friend's white noise is in response to your abrupt text, we have the website for you. 

Tone Analyzer is a new service that uses linguistic analysis to detect and analyse emotion and tone in messages.

Users are instructed to copy and paste messages into the website and press the 'Analyse' button.

In a few seconds, the website produces a list of analysed results from the message, breaking down the tone of the message into two levels (document and sentence) and three categories: emotion, language style and social tendencies.

Colour-coded bars suggest how much anger, joy, fear, disgust and sadness are hidden in the message.

The site also interprets how analytical the messenger is being, their confidence levels and tentativeness while it also looks into whether the text exhibits traits of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and emotional range. 

After a quick test, the website analyses the sentence, 'Sorry, I'm busy' to indicate a 66 per cent likeliness of sadness. However, 'Sorry, I'm busy!' (with an exclamation mark) increases the sadness level to 77 per cent. 

Punctuation is key, people. 

Of course, it's not 100 per cent accurate but the website provides an intruiging insight into what messages from your  boss, partner, family member and friends could really mean.
