Abstract

This work explores the role of personality as a mediation variable between the observable behaviour of a robot - gestures of different energy and spatial extension in the experiments of this work - and the subjective experience of its users as measure by the Godspeed questionnaire. The results show that, at least for some traits, the Big Five personality traits that the users attribute to a robot are predictive of the Godspeed scores, i.e., of the quality of the interaction the users have with the robot. In other words, robots that are attributed different personality traits tend to be perceived differently in relation to the quality of the interaction.
