Many of our actions, reactions and reasoning is based on our perceptions and emotions. These perceptions and emotions are associated with each other and to objects and stimuli within our environment in a tangled web of relations. In this paper we try to model this complicated relationship between emotions, perceptions and our behaviour to produce a model that can be used in software agents and humanized robots. The question we attempt to answer is Inferencing under a set of perceptions and associated emotions to trigger eventually a reaction in response to environment’s objects or stimuli.
