The role of social context in experimental studies on dishonesty
Ting, Carol
Source PublicationExperimental Psychology: Ambitions and Possibilities

We all have struggled with dishonesty—that uncomfortable feeling when we are the dishonest and the indignation when we are on the receiving end. In addition to emotional stress, dishonesty often has serious consequences: dishonesty in organizations not only causes material and reputational damages, but can also undermine institutions. The emotional charge and institutional consequences of dishonesty make it one of the perennial problems humans struggle with, and presumably that is why researchers have always been interested in the concept of dishonesty. However, a quick look at recent experimental literature on dishonesty shows that these social dimensions are often distorted in or missing from the experimental contexts. This paper examines the major experimental paradigms of dishonesty research and discusses the findings in light of their specific social contexts as well as methodological implications.
