This paper describes the use of the Negative Attitudes Towards Robots Scale (NARS) to explain participants' evaluations of robot behaviour styles in a Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) study. Twenty-eight participants interacted with a robot in two experimental conditions in which the robot's behaviour was varied. Reliability analysis and a PCA was performed on the NARS items, creating three new subscales. Correlations between the subscales and other evaluations of the robot's behaviour found meaningful results, supporting the use of the NARS in English speaking samples.
