‘We'll take it from here’: the effect of changing interviewers in information gathering interviews
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Method. Participants were interviewed by two interviewers about a mock security meeting they attended. In half the interviews the same two interviewers remained throughout, and in the other half two new interviewers took over half-way through.
Results. As predicted, differences between truth tellers and liars in terms of detail and repetition were most pronounced in the ‘Changed Interviewers’ condition.
Conclusions. Changing interviewers during an interview effectively differentiates liars and truth tellers with respect to detail and repetition. We discuss this finding and its place within investigative interviewing and deception detection literature.
