Abstract:

A number of studies have been accomplished examining the truth bias individuals have toward others with whom they have a close relationship or familiarity McCornack and Parks, 1986 Levine and McCornack, 1992 Stiff Kim and Ramesh, 1992. However, little has been done to examine the relationship between individuals and information artifacts. Does truth bias affect an individuals ability to detection strategic information manipulation in artifact-produced information Are there measures that can be taken to improve the deception detection capabilities of artifact users This research examines the artifact-user relationship and proposes a research model depicting the competing nature of artifact truth bias and detection factors such as experience, arousal and training as they influence an individuals ability to detect deception in artifact-produced information. The model was empirically tested in a laboratory experiment that included the use of a survey instrument. Together, the information collecting methods are used to gain a better understanding of the factors involved in strategic information manipulation and deception detection via artifacts.
