This study seeks to examine the relationship between personality variables and pain perception ability. Specifically this thesis hypothesises that the Intuitive psychological type (rooted in Jung's theories of psychological type) will be effective at detecting faking of physical pain. Additionally, this thesis hypothesises that those scoring highly on Openness to Experience, as well as those rating as extraverts and those who rate high in emotional intelligence, will be more accurate at pain-faking detection than individuals who do not demonstrate these personality traits. It is also hypothesised that participants rating high in Machiavellianism will be accurate in detecting pain deception. In addition, it is speculated that a gender factor will exist in the ability to detect pain deception.
