Abstract:To measure whether the findings of Bond, Levine and Hartwig (2015) are applicable during digital interactions, a study is implemented in which six deceptional cues were tested. Therefore, a 2 x 2 between-subject design research was implemented, with cognitive load (high cognitive load in the receiver condition and low cognitive load in the observer condition) and involvement (high involvement in the video condition and low involvement in the audio recording) as manipulations. The results show that the selected deceptional cues of Bond et al. (2015) are mainly supported in a technological setting. Significant findings are the deceiver being experienced as less cooperative, slightly harder thinking and hiding one’s face. The seriousness of the crime is, as expected, non-significant. Lastly, the influence of gender remains inconclusive since the results support both sides. Future research can focus on micro expressions (visual and auditive) in online veracity judgements.
