- ItemApplication of the Implicit Association Test (IAT) to a study of deception(Southern New Hampshire University, 2008-10) Frost, Peter; Adie, Michael; Culver, Kristin; Denomme, Roland; Rivardand, Stacy; Sibley, AngelaDuring an Implicit Association Test, participants associated deceptive and truthful details—which they provided previously in an eyewitness interview—with positive or negative attributes. Participants were faster associating deceptive details with negative attributes than positive attributes. Our results suggest participants harbored a negative, implicit attitude towards deceptive details.
- ItemApplication of the Implicit Association Test to a study on deception(University of Illinois Press, 2010) Frost, Peter; Adie, Michael; Denomme, Roland; Lahaie, Annabel; Sibley, Angela; Smith, EmilyThree experiments were conducted to find out whether the standard Implicit Association Test (IAT) could be used to distinguish truthful and deceitful witnesses. We anticipated that IAT effects would be greater after lying. Participants were asked to answer questions with incorrect answers (i.e., the lie condition) or correct answers (i.e., the truthful condition). A third group of participants were not interviewed (a control group). Participants then took the IAT, in which they were asked to associate correct and incorrect answers with positive or negative attributes. Results demonstrate that standard IAT effects are greater after lying than after truth telling, but only when attribute labels were clearly and explicitly linked to positive and negative affect. Theoretical implications are considered.
- ItemFalse memory-prone personality : a study on the big five personality traits associated with susceptibility to false memory(Southern New Hampshire University, 2009-10) Frost, Peter; Adie, Michael; Denomme, RolandParticipants answered questions from the NEO Personality Inventory in order to measure various personality domains and facets. Once the test was completed, participants watched an excerpt from a movie—the simulated eyewitness event. Participants then answered a recall test, with some of the questions requiring a confabulated response about the events that occurred in the movie. A week later, participants answered a yes/no recognition test about the movie. Participants were warned about the misinformation elicited in the first test and asked to answer questions based on their memory of the movie. Particular personality traits were reliably linked with false-event recognition.
