(from the chapter) The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of research on beliefs about deception - especially practitioners' beliefs. Specifically, we will outline which beliefs on deception professionals hold and compare these with what is known about actual (objective) differences between liars and truth-tellers. Then we will discuss how these beliefs have arisen, why they survive, how they spread, and to what they might lead. Finally, we will suggest how one might come to terms with misconceptions and false beliefs. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved) (chapter)
