Method of solving a dilemma by pretending to have adopted a new frame without actually having done so. For example, a party with a cooperation dilemma may pretend to have solved it by adopting a frame in which it does not prefer to, or is unable to, "defect" from its position while secretly it intends to defect if the position is implemented. In this way, it eliminates another party's doubt about its position. Another example: a party with a rejection dilemma may pretend to have solved it by changing its preferences so that it now prefers the threatened future to another party's position. Note that there can be no deceit in regard to positions or stated intentions, since by definition these are what parties say they are.
