A cognitive approach to lie detection: a meta-analysis
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Method: A meta-analysis was carried out on studies using the cognitive approach, 14 of which directly compared the cognitive approach to a standard approach.
Results: The cognitive lie detection approach produced superior accuracy results in truth detection (67%), lie detection (67%), and total detection (truth and lie detection combined, 71%) compared to a traditional standard approach (truth detection: 57%; lie detection: 47%; total detection: 56%).
Conclusions: Practitioners may find it useful to use a cognitive lie detection approach in their daily practice.
