Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This study focused on three variables (i.e., social skills as a personality trait, and emotional valence of topics and target person’s directions of eyes as situational cues) that might influence on the amount of gaze expressed by participants at a target person, and we investigated the possibility by using an eye mark recorder. 16 female students were ask to talk about either (1) what they felt happy recently or (2) what they got upset recently for 1 minutes to a target person appeared on a monitor. The target parson’s direction of eyes was manipulated such as one gazing at a participant and the other looking at downward. The result showed a significant interaction effect between social skills and emotional valence of topics. Participants with high scores on social skills gazed at the target parson’s eyes and faces longer when talking about positive topics than talking about negative topics, while participants with low scores did not show such differences. The study provides strong evidence that social skills should be defined as “ability to behave appropriately according to the situation”.
