The goal of this paper is to investigate the expression of interest as an affective-epistemic attitude in first acquaintance conversations. The study presents an analysis of how interest; as one of several different affective-epistemic attitudes; is shown through multimodal expressions between strangers meeting the first time. The results show that interest can be shown both as a single attitude and in combination with other attitudes. Interest as a single attitude occurs more often. The findings indicate that multimodal expressions connected with showing interest mainly include five body movements/gestures; gaze; head movements; holistic face; hand movements and body postures. Gaze occurs 70 times in the case of interest as a single attitude; and in combination with other attitudes 7 times. The corresponding numbers for head movements are 50 times for a single attitude and 7 times for a combined attitude. While smiles (classified as a general face movement) occur 24 times with a single attitude of interest; it occurs 9 times; in a combination with other attitudes. The difference between a single and a combined attitude was less pronounced regarding hand movements – 16 times for a single attitude and 8 times for a combined attitude. The numbers for body postures expressing attitudes were 11 for a single attitude versus only 1 for a combined attitude. The study suggests that there are signs of differences between how women and men show interest; even when taking into account that the number of women in the study exceeds the number of men. The difference between sexes regarding showing interest is bigger concerning the combined attitude type than the single attitude type.
