The Feeling Within
Alternatives to polygraphs:
truth serums (just barbiturates which are relaxants but it’s still easy to lie and
can cause memory distortion)
guilty knowledge test (asking questions and measuring arousal like polygraph
but has a low false positive rate. The way the questions are asked are different.
Questions are not ‘yes-no’ but instead mc questions including details of the crime
only the criminal would know, and measure physiological arousal looking for
spikes when details mentioned)
Who do we find attractive?
attraction refers to both romance and to friendship
are they around? How frequently do we encounter them? Proximity matters.

Document Summary

Truth serums (just barbiturates which are relaxants but it"s still easy to lie and can cause memory distortion) Guilty knowledge test (asking questions and measuring arousal like polygraph but has a low false positive rate. The way the questions are asked are different. Questions are not yes-no" but instead mc questions including details of the crime only the criminal would know, and measure physiological arousal looking for spikes when details mentioned) Attraction refers to both romance and to friendship. Mere exposure effect ; if you show people a picture repeatedly they are more likely to like them. Also, gives an opportunity for misattribution of arousal. Validates our views and we can anticipate and know what to expect from that person (views, actions, understanding). There are individual and cultural differences when comes to deciding who is or isn"t attractive; attraction is subjective. Most attractive women have higher estrogen levels, relating to fertility.
