The authors introduced the mental model and the Robot Personality for humanoids. The Mental Vector which expressed the mental state was defined in a 3D mental space and determined based on the Equations of Emotion. The Robot Personality consists of the Sensing Personality and Expression Personality. We implemented them to the human-like head robot WE-3RV. It could express the various mental states caused by stimuli from the environment.
