Humans have different cognitive thoughts, own personality, traits, cognitive characteristics and certain anxiety which have large impact on their thoughts. Humans are not perfect, but cognitive characteristics make humans what they are, and when humans interact, their cognitive personality reflects on their characteristics behaviours. Humans like/ dislike each other depending on their cognitive characteristics and then relationship forms. But, in human-robot interactions, the robot usually lacks of human-like cognitive personality, mood & emotions and cognitive bias effect in its behavioural characteristics. The current research is solely inspired by human’s cognitive characteristics and interaction processes, and it aims to develop above human-like factors in autonomous robotic system and test it with human users to study how that will affect the human-robot interactions and long-term relationships.
