Abstract:Personality characteristics of 86 students were measured, who were then randomly assigned to three different camera conditions and one control condition. They were asked to solve a couple of puzzles but were given the chance to cheat in various ways. Apart from that situations were set up in which participants had the possibility to show pro-social behaviour. The results show that cheating behaviour decreases the more control is indicated by the presence and presentation of the camera. Interaction effects of camera condition and personality characteristics on both cheating and pro-social behaviour were found. Further research is needed to use surveillance cameras more efficient.
