Sharing our moods is important in communication with the people sharing our space. However, it is difficult to convey our moods to other people constantly, and sometimes we are misunderstood by other people. In this study, we considered a method to visualize our moods to convey them to the people around us. We conducted experiments to evaluate a method that shares moods using printed stickers featuring a picture of a character expressing a mood. In this paper, we introduce the experiment and the results, and we consider the effect of showing moods using stickers.
