There is wide agreement about the fact that different kinds of communicative gestures like head move- ments and facial expressions are used extensively in face-to-face communication for various purposes e.g. expressing feedback; emphasis; turn management and emotions; or supporting the speaker’s own communi- cation management. Moreover; studies show that individual differences in gestural behaviour can be attributed to different personality traits like extraversion and openness. But these findings do not model the fact that the same person may feel and act differently in different situations. We compare the results of post- experiment questionnaires consisting of self-rating questions about conversation experience; influence and attitudinal emotions; to gestural behaviour in a multimodal corpus of face-to-face conversations. Our findings suggest a slight positive correlation between the way conversations are perceived and the number of head nods produced. In turn; the degree of head movement in the specific conversation is probably a function of the subject‚Äôs positive engagement in it.
