Abstract: This study examined the use of nonverbal cues in deception detection. A male and female actor recorded a scripted conversation between a dating couple that contained 32 question and response pairs. Latencies of the responses were manipulated to sound early, on-time, or late and speech rates were manipulated to sound normal or fast. Forty-four undergraduate students listened to the recording and rated each response as a truth or lie. It was predicted that instances in which latencies were early or late and speech rate was fast would be more likely to be perceived as lies. Results revealed that only late latencies were consistently perceived as lies. Additionally, gender of the speaker, participant gender, and lie type were found to interact with perceptions of deception. Implications for communication in close relationships and cross-gender conversations are discussed.
