Deception is an extensively researched cross-disciplinary subject with limited assessments. Literature has revealed a difference in attitudes toward deception based on the perspective that one holds (liar or dupe). The Others’ Deception Attitude Measure (ODAM) was developed to assess attitudes that people hold toward others who are deceptive. The purpose of the current study was to assess the psychometric properties of the ODAM. We recruited 149 participants who completed the ODAM and several other measures. Our results provide initial reliability and validity for the 17-item ODAM.
