When editing your profile for SharePoint 2010 or 2013, certain multi-line fields such as "Job Skills" or "Interests" offer potential values as you type. Originally I thought these suggestions were coming from other profiles - examples of what other people had used in those fields. After some research, though, that doesn't seem to be case. For instance, on my own profile, I get the following when I enter the letter "p":
I'd like to find out where the [keywords] items are coming from, especially, but I also need to correct the circled duplicate (Production vs. Productions). I couldn't find any profiles using the job title "Productions Manager", or for that matter "President", and I'm assuming that "Prodution" as a department is a typo somewhere. I'm hoping that these are static values stored somewhere where I can access and modify them, but I haven't been able to find much on it so far.
How does SharePoint compile this list of suggestions, and where are they stored specifically?
Note - if it's a list somewhere in the config database, I'd be curious which table as well... purely for academic purposes, of course.
