The working group is concerned with the use of certain strategies of persuasion and their theoretical explanation. In particular, the effect of attractiveness and sympathy as salient communicator properties, in combination with different persuasion strategies (e.g., explicit persuasion), are examined for their effectiveness with regard to attitude and behavior change.

Credibility and Lying
In this research area, we address the question of which social and individual variables influence both: active deception and the detection of deception. Currently, one research project is concerned with how the statements of Native vs. Non-Native speakers are perceived in terms of their credibility. Another research project is investigating the relationship of personality traits with deception in intimate relationships.
