A human-robot interaction was achieved, which was as natural as human-human interaction. Psychological experiment to confirm that people feel 'shyness' on human-robot interaction and could be broken by sharing common quality of sense between the person and the robot was also computed. It was found that subjects of experimental group (ExpG), the i-Director generated utterances including feeling about the object in real world. The control group (CtlG) subjects, the i-director generated utterances including information of the object. It was finally found that the CtlG subjects did not fee shy about interaction with robot.
