What will participants be doing?

The experiment will be conducted online via Zoom. Participants will be provided with a Zoom link prior to the experiment. During the session, participants will be asked to watch a video and will then be instructed to either tell the truth or lie about it to an interviewer. Participants will complete an automated questionnaire before and after the interview about their experiences, impressions and demographics. This is a one-session experiment that will take approximately 45 minutes.

Participant characteristics:

  • any gender
  • aged 18+
  • staff, student and the general public
  • must have access to a laptop/desktop with a camera function and internet access


Participants will receive £10 for taking part.
