Lavrakas, Paul J.; Maier, Richard A.
Journal of Research in Personality, v13 n2 p139-53 Jun 1979
Twenty audiotapes, containing lies or true statements, were recorded and judged by 100 subject-listeners, aged 15-30. As a group, subjects displayed better-than-chance accuracy in judging veracity, which confirms previous studies. A tentative profile is drawn of an individual adept at detecting lies. (SJL)
