Abstract:In this experiment I have done research to find a relation between cognitive load and the intention of deception. Earlier experiments and researches about deception have been taken as a theoretical basis concerning the relation between cognitive load when telling the truth and when telling lies. To research the intention to deception, I set up an experiment where participants were instructed to tell the whole truth, a whole lie and truths with the intention to lie afterwards. Cognitive load was measured with the aid of skin conductance. The results concluded that when looked at longer measurements, the cognitive load is higher when telling a whole lie and when telling truths with the intention of deception, than when the whole truth is told.
