Motivated to lie: The effects of incentives on characteristics of truthful and deceptive informant reports

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In exchange for testifying in court, jailhouse informants sometimes receive incentives (e.g., reduced prison terms). Although incentives can increase the likelihood informants will make false reports, incentives may also change their behaviours in ways that affect success at detecting lies in their accounts. This study examined behavioural cues emitted by participants as they reported a criminal admission they heard or pretended to have heard. Some participants were given an incentive to perform well in their reports. Fewer differences were detected between honest and deceptive participants in cue frequencies exhibited during their reports when participants were incentivized versus not incentivized.
