Sammanfattning (abstract):
Deception research has not taken into account that children often are inter-viewed repeatedly about their experiences. This study is an experiment concern-ing adults’ (n = 88) ability to correctly detect deception and truth in repeatedly interviewed children (eleven-year-olds), who had watched a live show by a magi-cian, or had invented such an event. The overall accuracy (59%) was not signifi-cantly better then chance, in line with previous research. The three most fre-quent self-reported cues to deception were, in order, consistency between the child’s statements, the child’s confidence, and richness of detail. Truth-telling children were more prone to make both omissions and commissions than decep-tive children. The Reality Monitoring technique was able to correctly discrimi-nate between truthful and deceptive accounts. The theoretical and applied impli-cations of the results are discussed.
