Abstract: We study the linear functional $\rho $ on the Cuntz algebra $\mathcal{O}_{n} $ associated to a sequence $\langle \eta _{m} \rangle $ of unit vectors $ \eta _{m}$ in $\mathbb{C}^{n} $ that is a generalization of the Cuntz state. We prove that $\rho $ is positive if and only if $\langle \eta _{m} \rangle $ is a constant sequence.
