November 27, 2007 Estimated Accuracy : how good you think you’ll be at detecting deception Actual Accuracy : how good at detecting deception you really are Estimated Accuracy almost always exceeds Actual Accuracy, especially when judging the truthfulness of friends or people who they are close to. Ways of Studying Deception 1. Slide Paradigm: we show pictures of slides on a screen of two varieties (slides of beautiful things and slides from hospitals, for example). While you are watching the slides, there is someone standing in front of you that either says S”lie” or “truth” and they hold up the sign whenever a slide comes up and you either lie or tell the truth about the sign. 2. Interview Paradigm: ask you a series of question. 3. Academic Honesty Paradigm: the researchers had you participating in puzzle solving tasks in pairs. You are working on the task, usually taking about 35-40 minutes, and about 15 minutes into there is a knock on the door. The teacher leaves for about 20 minutes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
