Detecting Deception across Cultures

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för management

Abstract:

This paper seeks to examine the possibility of detecting deception across cultures. Individuals from different countries (functioned like mock judges) assessed the veracity of statements made by other individuals from different countries (functioned like mock suspects). Mock judges are divided in two groups: the first group watched the mock suspects’ normal behavior pattern before watching them lying and telling the truth. The second group watched just the interrogation video with the mock suspects and assessed the veracity of their statements. The result shows that those who watched the video with the subject’s normal behavior pattern and then watched the interrogation video could reveal more lie than those who just watched the interrogation video.
