Decoding the Perception of Sincerity in Dialogues

Codruta Girlea, Corina R Girju

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Identifying deception in online conversations is an important problem. A core component in interpreting deception is understanding how people perceive sincerity. Given that the larger proportion of human communication is non-verbal, decoding perceived sincerity is difficult in media where the only signal is written text. We introduce psycholinguistic features of perceived sincerity for two domains, dating and online games. Our results further the understanding of how language, deception, and perception connect.
