Abstract(in English) People give excuses as one of the means of self-presentation to manage their impression of themselves when they are in social predicament. On the other hand, it is very important to identify the excuses and to evaluate the excusers appropriately in situations such as job questioning. In this study, we examined the internal design of a system that predicts the change of the excuser's impression and behavior generation, with the aim of helping the excuser to identify the excuse from a quantitative viewpoint. As an internal design, we assumed that the behavior of the excuser follows a model that generates the optimal verbal behavior to control the impression of the excuser from others to himself, and we tried to assist the excuser to make an appropriate evaluation of the excuser by predicting the change of impression (likeability) and behavior generation of the excuser. In order to show the validity of the model as an internal design, we conducted an experiment on subjects imitating a job question as an explanation scene and compared the experimental results with the simulation results based on the proposed model. In the experimental situation, it is suggested that the proposed model may have validity in terms of likeability change.
