WASHINGTON, Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- President Donald Trump is most stressed when having to thank people and talk about God, according to speech analysis (http://factba.se/blog/2017/08/17/donald-trump-voice-stress-analysis/) from Factba.se (https://factba.se), the acclaimed and often-cited Trump database. The findings are part of a new feature that can measure a person's sentiments, comfort level and anxiety when speaking, to reveal if the person's mood matches their words.
Spanning more than 1.6 million words and 170 hours of audio over nearly four decades, key findings reveal that in addition to God and thanking others, Trump's stress level is highest when discussing The White House, veterans, law enforcement and "The Wall." Alternatively, Trump seemingly displays the highest comfort level when speaking on infrastructure, The Middle East, war and The New York Times.
"Our mission is to provide citizens, media, businesses and government officials with a direct connection to data and facts through primary sources," said Bill Frischling, CEO of parent company FactSquared (http://factsquared.com) and the founder and developer of Factba.se. "Without speculating on the 'why,' our features reveal the 'what' around points of stress or comfort by quickly analyzing robust video, audio and transcripts for political leaders."
The analysis relied on peer-reviewed software that measures frequency changes in the voice below the level of human hearing that result when muscles contract during periods of stress. Upon establishing a baseline for Trump's speech, FactSquared's AI identified frequently-discussed topics and how relaxed or stressed Trump was when discussing.
Known as Emotion Subtitles (https://factba.se/faq/emotion-subtitles) the feature accompanies all audio and video segments to analyze Trump's moods, such as his press conference on infrastructure and the events in Charlottesville earlier this week.
