Our reasoning process uses and is influenced by our perception model of the environment stimuli and by our memorization of related experiences, beliefs, and emotions that are associated with each stimulus, whilst taking in considerations other factors such as time and space. These two processes of modelling and memorization happen in real time while interspersing with each other in a manner they almost seem as if they are one process. This is often referred to as cognition. In this paper we provide a simplified model of this complicated relationship between emotions, perceptions and our behaviour to produce a model that can be used in software agents and humanized robots.
