Title: Machiavellianism, types of lies, and nonverbal communication
Author: O'Hair, Henry Dan
Abstract: The detection of deception is what the present study will focus on . Detection of deception is not a new phenomenon , Ancient Chinese authorities would have a suspected criminal chew dried rice while being interrogated . If after the interrogation the rice in the criminal's mouth was dry , the criminal was condemned . The ancient Chinese thesis was that the act of lying induces stress which causes the salivary glands to dry up (Block , 1975 ) . Another early example of lie detection was reported by Lee (1953 , 4 ) about a Hindu prince .
