Are cues to deception similar from culture to culture? The present study identifies some of those cues in previous studies in the United States, and tests Jordanian beliefs about cues associated with deception. Jordanian college students were asked to indicate their beliefs about cues associated with deception on a 20-item Likert type scale. Results showed that Jordanian students identified ten behaviors to be significantly related to their beliefs about liars. These cues are discussed in terms of cultural differences from the United States and cultural values in Jordan.
