Abstract(in English) This paper reports how agents performing gender-specific self-adaptors are perceived by human raters depending on their gender. Human-human interactions were analyzed with respect to usage of gender-specific self-adaptors in a pre-experiment. Based on results, a male and a female agent were animated to show these extracted self-adaptors. Our evaluation of the interactions between agents that exhibit self-adaptors typically exhibited by human male and female indicated that there is a dichotomy on the impression on the agent between participants’ gender. Male participants showed more favorable impressions on agents that display feminine self-adaptors than masculine ones regardless of the agent’s gender, while female participants showed rigorous impressions toward feminine self-adaptors.
