Abstract

Abstract Effects of extraversion on the validity of psychophysiological detection of deception by means of the guilty knowledge test were examined in a mock crime experiment. Subjects were 94 volunteers from a criminal investigation department. Extraversion was measured by the Eysenck Personality Inventory. Using differences in skin conductance reactions to critical and noncritical items of the guilty knowledge test, extraverted guilty subjects were classified more accurately than guilty introverts.
