Abstract

The present study investigated deception from an ecological standpoint. In particular, we were interested in observing the nature and frequency of deceiving in daily life a) by analyzing deception as a family of communication phenomena and processes, and b) by investigating the cognitive design of different deceptive messages. In a diary study, 101 graduates and 70 community members recorded their daily social interactions and lies for a week. In order to categorize the collected material, a grid of deceptive “subfamilies” was prepared ad hoc. A content analysis was performed using ATLAS.ti software package. Results showed that high-content lies are more frequently told by omission rather than by commission, while the opposite happened when people told low-content lies
