Imagini Gets $13.5m To Work Out Your Personality With Pictures

UK start-up Imagini has secured a significant $13.5 million in a second round of funding (the first round was undisclosed). The additional investment comes from Horizons Ventures, NorthZone Ventures and Atomico. Imagini has an interesting technology called VisualDNA which effectively works out people’s personality types by presenting them with picture choices – instead of, say, asking users to type in their profile. The Flash-based quiz is not unlike a game, and can be quite addictive once you get going. The result is that Imagini says online retailers get a 37% uplift from customers after they get profiled. So whether you picked the Grand Torino over the Lamborghini really does say something about you.
