Personality is one of the most important factors in human interactions, which retains its importance in human- robot interactions with social robots. This work focusses on the varied linguistic strategies which characterize the personality traits of extraversion and introversion, analysing the main features that differentiate both personalities and eventually proposing a verbal communication model for the extraverted and introverted personality of a conversational social robot. The model classifies and converts phrases, with the result of building different communication styles. A pilot study, involving human subjects and the humanoid robot Pepper, programmed to mimic both extraverted and introverted personality types, has been conducted, with the twofold aim of assessing if differences between the two personalities of the robot can be perceived, and analyzing the effects of different personality traits on verbal interaction with human subjects. Preliminary results seem to confirm the law of attraction in human-human interaction for the extraverted personality.

Abstract

Personality is one of the most important factors in human interactions, which retains its importance in human- robot interactions with social robots. This work focusses on the varied linguistic strategies which characterize the personality traits of extraversion and introversion, analysing the main features that differentiate both personalities and eventually proposing a verbal communication model for the extraverted and introverted personality of a conversational social robot. The model classifies and converts phrases, with the result of building different communication styles. A pilot study, involving human subjects and the humanoid robot Pepper, programmed to mimic both extraverted and introverted personality types, has been conducted, with the twofold aim of assessing if differences between the two personalities of the robot can be perceived, and analyzing the effects of different personality traits on verbal interaction with human subjects. Preliminary results seem to confirm the law of attraction in human-human interaction for the extraverted personality.
