Abstract:The goal of this study was testing the difference between telling the truth, the intention to lie and lying, as to cognitive load and a possible estimator; self-monitoring. Previous research has shown that the process of lying has influence on cognitive load. Beside the process of lying there has also been some research on the influence of the intention to lie on cognitive load. The expectation of the current study was that the process of lying and the intention to lie result in a higher cognitive load than telling the truth. Furthermore it was expected that people who score high on the character trait self-monitoring experience a higher cognitive load while lying or having the intention to lie than people that score low. With both expectations it was assumed that lying amounts to a higher cognitive load than the intention to lie. In the experiment of this study electrodermal activity (EDA) was used to test these hypotheses. The results show that an interaction-effect exists between lying and self-monitoring on cognitive load.
