A comparison of role-playing vs laboratory deception methods was conducted in the context of varying pressures to compromise one’s religious beliefs in an anticipated negotiation session. Results revealed a subtle interaction effect produced in the laboratory deception condition which was not obtained for the role-playing condition. Other results are discussed, and caution is advised in interchangeably employing both methods.
