The Personality-enabled Architecture for Cognition (PAC) is a new modeling architecture designed to create Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVAs) with personality traits and cultural characteristics. PAC integrates theory and empirical data from personality psychology, social psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience to build a model of personality that is based on fundamental underlying human motivational systems. Unlike existing models that attempt to build affective and personality factors as customizations or additions to an underlying formally rational symbolic architecture, in PAC personality directly arises from fundamental motivational systems integral to the agent.
