This work presents a conversational agent (CA) that functions as a prototype for simulating interrogations. The solution implements a cognitive model that focuses on the interpersonal relationships between the CA and the user. This model can adjust the interpersonal stance of the CA based on the sentiment and phrasing of the user's utterances. As a result, the CA updates the friendliness and truthfulness of its responses accordingly.
