Is there a program or website invested in mapping out an individual's lexicon in a way where you could look at it and see the areas that you might be lacking intellectually? Say I copy and paste all of the text I've ever written into this program and it spreads out the words I use over a master template that contains the entire conceptual spectrum and maybe even color codes the words I use more and less frequently as a way of mapping what I am more focused on.

The route I want to take in this is to look for the orientations our use of words is taking--if the choice of words depending on their context can help us triangulate the direction our attitudes are taking, and I'm not just talking about the attitudes we are self aware of, I'm talking about the attitudes that might predate the formation of our entire psyche or the attitudes that have taken over our lives against our own best interests. The lexicography might lead us to a route, that when we go backwards down the route, we might meet a painful memory we have not consciously dealt with yet. Or something else, we discover previously unknown territories.

And when lexicons are gathered, they can be individually analyzed in correspondence with other lexicons to reveal doorways that connect the two lexicons and backdoors where a lexicon going into another lexicon's doorway will cause the host lexicon to look as though it is speaking in metaphors.

As an applied science, this could work great in A.I. communication and imagination as well as negotiations between nations and to increase the effectiveness in marketing to individuals.

Probably Facebook is doing it, compiling data on what words people use and extracting corrélative information about them, rendering it capable of constructing more precise psychological profiles. Not exactly the nice vision you’re proposing in my opinion though.

Of course, I actually have no idea if fb is doing this or not, but if I was fb I would.
