Description

Individuals provide deceptive information in many contexts and for many reasons. We explore the phenomenon of medical patients providing deceptive information to their healthcare providers via both face-to-face and online interactions. We will employ the scenario-based factorial survey method to present research respondents with various situations in which they may consider whether or not to provide accurate or deceptive information. This method has been demonstrated to yield valid data for investigations of norm-violating behaviors. Results will be presented at the conference.
