VASCONCELLOS, Silvio José Lemos et al. Validity evidence of a scale of anxiety in lying situations. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.3, pp. 383-390. ISSN 1677-0471.

Lying is an everyday act of social interaction. People lie for all sorts of reasons, and different emotions are experimented in these situations. As an integral part of the culture, lying has received a great deal of attention by researchers in the last decades. In Brazil, this new field of research has attracted interest in recent years. This study was set up to construct and validate a measure of the anxiety related to the act of lying. The 44 items elaborated to represent the construct were applied to a sample of 452 individuals. Data were submitted to exploratory factorial analysis and two factors were taken with eigenvalues over 1,0. Factor 1 covered appointments and business (10 items, α=0.81); factor 2 covered relationships (10 items, α=0.82) The method for measuring this kind of anxiety resulting from this study opens possibilities for future national research.
