False statements can be the result of conscious, deliberate, decisions on the part of the person making the statement, or they can be the result of unconscious processes. For the interview to be successful, the interviewer must learn to recognize the difference between a lie intended to flatter, avoid punishment, gain rewards, or protect loved ones and a false belief that arises from a chain of inferences or reconstructive processes that are neither planned nor even accessible to awareness. The interviewer who does not recognize the difference has failed. Such an interviewer will never uncover the truth.
