    In this paper, we contend that interpersonal circumplex theories and politeness strategies may be combined to inform the generation of social behaviours for virtual agents. We show how stances from the interpersonal circumplex correspond to certain politeness strategies and present the results of a small pilot study that partially supports our approach. Our goal is to implement this model in a serious game for police training.
