We are currently working on an updated version of the reverse correlation technique to visualize internal representations of personality dimensions, self-view, emotions and protoypes of social groups. Therefore we combine the classical reverse correlation technique with the face space approach and up-to-date computer graphics in order to extract peoples consensus.
