Abstract:This research is focused on the effects of deceiving in daily life. In a one-day diary study the consequences of feelings and emotions after deception in everyday life were tested (N = 259). The one-day diary, completed by the participants at the end of the day, examined to determine the effects of deception (versus truth telling), gender and type of deception on experienced feelings and emotions, regarding guilt, shame, stress, fear, comfort and duping delight. Participants were asked if they deceived that day and what the possible deception was about. Hereafter the deceivers, but also the truth tellers have to score different statements about feelings and emotions. Results showed that, deceivers feel more guilt, shame and comfort, compared to truth tellers. In addition self-oriented deceivers who feel more duping delight compared to other-oriented deceivers. There is no difference in feelings and emotions between men and women after deception and there is no difference between self-oriented deceivers and other-oriented deceivers in the feelings and emotions guilt, shame, stress, fear and comfort.
