With increased demand for agents that exhibit emotion-driven behaviour, models are required that facilitate implementation of those agents. A commonly used model for this purpose is the OCC model, but this model falls short in representing the effects and self-regulation of emotion. Linehan’s Theory of Emotional Dysregulation is an alternative theory that treats these aspects of emotion. An attempt was made to model this theory into an agent and represent emotional phenomena analogous to those in humans. Several sequential experiments were designed to test if various aspects of the theory could be replicated. While some real-life phenomena seemed to emerge, more research will be required to verify the feasibility of Linehan’s theory.
