Deception

Deception is an act or statement which misleads, hides the truth, or promotes a belief, concept, or idea, not true. It is done for personal gain or advantage. Deception can involve dissimulation and sleight of hand, as well as distraction, camouflage, or concealment. There is self-deception, as in bad faith, it can be called, with varying subjective implications, deceit, mystification, ruse, or subterfuge. Deception is a major relational transgression that leads to feelings of betrayal and distrust between relational partners. Deception is considered to be a negative violation of expectations. Most people expect friends, relational partners, strangers to be truthful most of the time. If people expected most conversations to be untruthful and communicating with others would require distraction and misdirection to acquire reliable information. A significant amount of deception occurs between some relational partners. Deceit and dishonesty can form grounds for civil litigation in tort, or contract law, or give rise to criminal prosecution for fraud.

It forms a vital part of psychological warfare in denial and deception. Deception includes several types of communications or omissions that serve to distort or omit the whole truth. Examples of deception range from false statements to misleading claims in which relevant information is omitted, leading the receiver to infer false conclusions. For example, a claim that'sunflower oil is beneficial to brain health due to the presence of omega-3 fatty acids' may be misleading, as it leads the receiver to believe sunflower oil will benefit brain health more so than other foods. In fact, sunflower oil is low in omega-3 fatty acids and is not good for brain health, so while this claim is technically true, it leads the receiver to infer false information. Deception itself is intentionally managing verbal or nonverbal messages so that the message receiver will believe in a way that the message sender knows is false. Intent is critical with regard to deception. Intent differentiates between an honest mistake.

The Interpersonal Deception Theory explores the interrelation between communicative context and sender and receiver cognitions and behaviors in deceptive exchanges. Some forms of deception include: Lies: making up information or giving information, the opposite or different from the truth. Equivocations: making an indirect, ambiguous, or contradictory statement. Concealments: omitting information, important or relevant to the given context, or engaging in behavior that helps hide relevant information. Exaggerations: overstatement or stretching the truth to a degree. Understatements: minimization or downplaying aspects of the truth. Untruthful: Also known as misinterpreting the truth. Many people believe that they are good at deception, though this confidence is misplaced. Buller and Burgoon have proposed three taxonomies to distinguish motivations for deception based on their Interpersonal Deception Theory: Instrumental: to avoid punishment or to protect resources Relational: to maintain relationships or bonds Identity: to preserve “face” or the self-image Deception detection between relational partners is difficult unless a partner tells a blatant or obvious lie or contradicts something the other partner knows to be true.

While it is difficult to deceive a partner over a long period of time, deception occurs in day-to-day conversations between relational partners. Detecting deception is difficult because there are no known reliable indicators of deception and because people reply on a truth-default state. Deception, places a significant cognitive load on the deceiver, he or she must recall previous statements so that his or her story remains consistent and believable. As a result, deceivers leak important information both verbally and nonverbally. Deception and its detection is a complex and cognitive process, based on the context of the message exchange; the interpersonal deception theory posits that interpersonal deception is a dynamic, iterative process of mutual influence between a sender, who manipulates information to depart from the truth, a receiver, who attempts to establish the validity of the message. A deceiver's actions are interrelated to the message receiver's actions, it is during this exchange that the deceiver will reveal verbal and nonverbal information about deceit.

Some research has found that there are some cues that may be correlated with deceptive communication, but scholars disagree about the effectiveness of many of these cues to serve as reliable indicators. Noted deception scholar Aldert Vrij states that there is no nonverbal behavior, uniquely associated with deception; as stated, a specific behavioral indicator of deception does not exist. There are, some nonverbal behaviors that have been found to be correlated with deception. Vrij found that examining a "cluster" of these cues was a more reliable indicator of deception than examining a single cue. Mark Frank proposes. Lying requires deliberate conscious behavior, so listening to speech and watching body language are important factors in detecting lies. If a response to a question has a lot disturbances, less talking time, repeated words, poor logical structure the person may be lying. Vocal cues such as frequency height and variation may provide meaningful clues to deceit. Fear causes heightened arousal in liars, which manifests in more frequent blinking, pupil dilation, speech distu
