I’m a researcher in the Institute of Psychology at the Jagiellonian University. I am mainly interested in methods of interviewing, interrogating and deception detection. Now I am involved in project which is dedicated to construct the new theory of commitment. Specifically, we are trying to prove that dispositional and situational variables that foster the initiation of commitment are not necessary the same variables that affect its maintenance
