MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we describe our preliminary work on understanding the impact of personality on the emotion induction in different social circumstances during the consumption of movies, for the purpose of the context-aware recommender system for movies. The purpose of this study is to answer two research questions: is there a difference in emotion induction when users are alone as opposed to when they are with company during watching the movie, and do different personality profiles inuence the emotion induction when users are alone as opposed to when they are with company during watching the movie? We have used the (LDOS-CoMoDa) dataset which contains ratings and associated contextual information for the consumed movies, as well as Big Five personality profiles of the users. The results showed that there is an inuence of social context on emotion induction, and that personality factors have to be taken into consideration since for the different groups of users, based on the personality factors, the emotion induction was inuenced differently.
