psychopathy, deception, assessment, Observation Oriented Modeling, mock crimes
A mock crime scenario was used to test the hypothesis that individuals with psychopathic personality traits exhibit hyporeactive orienting responses to critical visual stimuli during instances of deception. Observation Oriented Modeling was then used to assess possible personality differences based on participants' galvanic skin responses following the presentation of critical items used in the mock crime. No meaningful difference was found between participants with psychopathic personality traits as compared to participants with psychopathy assessment scores that fell within normal limits.
