Sample text

Since the justification is essentially private, it is too easy for the would-be liar to first settle on the desired outcome (to lie or not lie) and then to adjust the calculations to support that alternative. Third, the utilitarian view of lying assumes that lying per se is morally neutral and is not accorded an initially negative weight (cost), which must be overcome by especially positive benefits. This neutral view of lying per se overlooks the inherent harm done to society when even justifiable lies are offered.

Such group differences and correlations do not address the important question of predictive accuracy. Group differences on Rorschach variables, for example, do not reflect the accuracy of predictions made with a particular cutoff score. Even when a research finding focuses on individual prediction rather than on group correlates, a statistically significant relationship does not necessarily indicate a good predictor. The value of a variable as a predictor of deception is determined by its effect size, not by its statistical significance (Cohen, 1977).

The views of ethicists will aid in evaluating the use of deception to detect the deceivers, and a review of principles of research interpretation will help to distinguish theory building from applied detection. There can be no deception without an entity to deceive. As a corollary, all falsehood is interactional and all interpersonal transactions are subject to deception. Intentional deception always involves representing the target’s situation, maintaining the target as somehow appealing, and keeping it apart from the truth.
