Abstract:This study is an empirical test of the way rapport is influenced when there are one or two interviewers present, when veracity conditions differ between truth or deception, and their impact on stress and cognitive load in these situations. It does so by testing these hypotheses in a controlled environment using an interactive interview setting that approaches the high stress, high cognitive load context found in police interviews. The analyses showed no significant difference in interviewee rapport, cognitive load or stress for the number of interviewers present, but interviewee rapport was significantly higher in truth conditions than in deception conditions. Cognitive load was found to be significantly higher in the deception conditions than in the truth condition. Stress was also significantly higher in the deception than in the truth condition. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
