Arithmetic Methods in Personality Modeling

  • Chris Crawford
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7069)


This workshop demonstrated how to use arithmetic methods in personality models for characters in interactive storytelling. We began with the selection of personality attributes and the relationships between first person, second person, and third person attributes. The mathematics of “bounded numbers” was explained. We then worked on modeling and behavior problems suggested by participants.
