Abstract:This study is about personality, embodied conversational agents (ECA) and interpretation of behavior in an annotation task of police interrogations. An ECA is being developed by the University of Twente in cooperation with the police academy with the purpose of providing new ways to assist detectives learning and improving interrogations skills. This study aims to contribute to the development of a part of that system which is concerned with natural dialog and the overall realness of the interaction between a detective and the ECA. A group detectives and non-detectives completed a five factor personality test and annotation task. Leary’s interpersonal theory of behavior was used to conduct the annotations. We were interested in differences between both groups on the test and task and set out to look for possible relations between the scores on the personality test and how they rated the behavior in the interrogations. Detectives scored higher than non-detectives on Agreeableness, but did not differ on the other domains. Behavior of the interviewee was rated more defiant by the group non-detectives. Overall inter-rater agreement was equal to previous findings.
