Artificial personality and the need to include the observational perspectives more centrally in the research agenda


In this paper, the social constructivistís dramatur-gical model of personality is used to define the field of artificial personality for embodied agents. The dramaturgical model views personality from three perspectives: that of the actor (which is concerned with the internal organization of personality and its expression), that of the observer (which is con-cerned with the perception and interpretation of personality), and that of the self-observer (which is concerned with the management of self-presentations). Not only does the dramaturgical model of personality shed light on current research concerns and problems in artificial personality but, because it includes the observational perspectives, it also points out new directions for exploration.
