This paper presents a pilot evaluation study that investigates the physiological response of users when interacting with virtual agents that resemble cultural behaviors in an Augmented Reality environment. In particular, we analyze users from the Arab and German cultural backgrounds. The initial results of our analysis are promising and show that users tend to have a higher physiological arousal towards virtual agents that do not exhibit behaviors of their cultural background.
