Sammanfattning

The current study attempts to provide a novel approach to distinguish between true and false intentions by means of an evaluative priming task. The study is based on two assumptions. Firstly, the motivational properties of true and false intentions differ; specifically that true, but not false, intentions are goal directed. Secondly, goal directed behavior results in the automatic (implicit) evaluation of goal related stimuli; where goal facilitative stimuli are more positively evaluated than goal inhibiting stimuli. In addition, evaluative priming tasks are thought to assess automatic evaluations. Therefore, by using an evaluative priming task related to the stated intention, it should be possible to distinguish between true and false intentions. The study will consist of a true and a false intention group. The true intention group will be given a neutral task to plan and perform. The false intention group will be given a mock crime to plan and perform, and will also be told to prepare a cover story similar to the neutral task. The cover story is the false intention. Participants will be asked to perform the evaluative priming task before they implement their plans. The critical primes in this task will be positively related to the neutral task or negatively related to criminal behavior in general. It is hypothesized that there will be differing priming effects between the true and false intention groups.
