Naturally, I experiment on myself in this research, as well as with the help of other people, and to this point I have recorded my own personal answers to about 100,000 questions. While  I  find  answering  questions  fun,  a  kind  of  hobby, in general people will need to be motivated to record them- selves, so future attitude recording systems will be designed to  accomplish  other  things  as  well,  such  as  psychotherapy and advice-giving. Recently, I have written a program called ANNE that runs on a small tablet computer that is easy to carry around. ANNE stands for ANalogies in Natural Emotions, is based on the 2,000 emotion stimuli, and helps the user orient emotionally to incidents that occur in life. Suppose  I  have  to  give  a  lecture  to  a  skeptical  audience. I enter “give a lecture to a skeptical audience” into ANNE, then click a number of buttons (or speak my responses, because tablet computers have pretty good voice recognition systems), rating this incident on all the emotions and other variables. Immediately,  ANNE compares my ratings with all the rat- ings of the 2,000 episodes stored in the computer, identifying which are most similar, so I can then contemplate what fun- damental features they share and what strategies have worked well in the past in similar situations. Used over a period of years, ANNE would accumulate not only thousands of fresh episodes, but also much more information about my reac- tions to them than I would ordinarily remember – raising the paradox that a computer-generated duplicate of myself might be more like me than I am actually like myself at any given moment in my forgetful life. Some quite prominent researchers in computer science or cognitive science are developing other means to record per- sonality. From one perspective, we are what we experience.
