Women are Warmer but No Less Assertive than Men: Gender and Language on Facebook

Fig 5

Gender-linked language topics in the interpersonal circumplex.

Points are topics (semantically-related clusters of words.) Squares are topics used more by males; circles are topics used more by women. The color saturation of each point indicates the size of the gender difference effect size (Cohen’s d), with darker colors indicating stronger effects. The position of each topic is determined by its correlation with extraversion and agreeableness.
