Abstract

This essay argues for an enlarged conceptualization of deception. A multidimensional scaling of similarity judgments of forty-six deception-related terms identified a number of aspects underlying the construct. They included evaluation, detectability, and premeditation. The elicited terms were subjected to a hierarchical cluster analysis, which revealed six families of deception: Fictions, playings, lies, crimes, masks, and unlies. Implications of these results were explored.
