    This paper compares two methods to collect multiple perspectives on the appropriate timing of listener responses. Based on the results of the multiple perspectives from both methods a virtual listener produces head nods at appropriate times and times not indicated as appropriate and let a human observer assess the appropriateness of each individual head nod. This way we collected multiple perspectives on inappropriate timing of listener responses. Combining all these perspectives we get a view on the graded optionality and graded inappropriateness of listener responses in certain contexts.
