Abstract. We report data from a laboratory experiment demonstrating that cheating is significantly deterred when a possible intent to cheat must be revealed before (Planned), rather than after (Impulsive), a potentially dishonest act. Our data suggest subjects hide their cheating intentions while still manage to cheat for profit.

Beyond financial indicators, alternative indicators have been shown to predict financial behaviour (e.g., loan repayment). However, as these alternative indicators include factors such as mental health, physical health, parental attachment, relationship stability, and social capital (e.g., centrality in online social network), there are issues of sensitivity and transparency.

Abstract: Using self-report data (N=348), we investigate whether Fiscal Irresponsibility is correlated with the personality variables of Deferred-Gratification, Impulsivity, Risk-Taking, Self-Regulation and Consideration of Future Consequences. A new Fiscal Irresponsibility scale was developed using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis.

Machiavellianism has been considered in the literature as the symbol for manipulative strategies in social conduct. However, it has been rarely studied via behavioural experiments outside the laboratory, in more naturalistic settings. We report the first behavioural study (N=490) evaluating whether Machiavellian individuals, high Machs, deceive more than low Machs in online poker, where deception is ethically acceptable and strategically beneficial. Specifically, we evaluated Machiavellianism, bluffing patterns, and emotional sensitivity to getting “slow-played” (“stepping into a trap”). Bluffing was assessed by realistic poker tasks wherein participants made decisions to bluff or not, and sensitivity to slow-play by a self-report measure. We found that high Machs had higher average bluffsizes than low Machs (but not higher bluffing frequency) and were more distraught by getting slow-played. The Machiavellian sub-trait “desire for control” also positively predicted bluffing frequency. We show that online poker can be utilized to investigate the psychology of deception and Machiavellianism. The results also illustrate a conceptual link between unethical and ethical types of deception, as Machiavellianism is implicated in both.

Abstract: In psychology, deception is commonly used to increase experimental control. Yet, its use has provoked concerns that it raises participants' suspicions, prompts second-guessing of experimenters' true intentions, and ultimately distorts behavior and the control it is meant to achieve. These concerns can and have been subjected to empirical analysis.

In a simulated market research questionnaire on Mturk , participants were asked to disclose 17 open-ended items which varied by hypothesized fairness, relevance, sensitivity, and effort. Responders were then contacted and invited to a follow up questionnaire. Perceived fairness was a strong predictor of item disclosure, whereas relevance, sensitivity, and effort were weak or null predictors.
