Men More Likely To Lie Than Women, New Scientific Proof

heart & Soul,flickr

Men are more likely to lie than women, but women were more likely to lie in specific situations.

Men lie three times each day, new research indicates that men total up to 1,092 lies each year, while females tell 728 each year, an average of two per day. Men may apparently feel the need to lie more often, it is women that have specific occasions where they are more prone to fibbing – such as when buying new clothes. That was when 39 percent of women felt the need to lie about their latest purchases compared to just 26 percent of men.

Another difference was that women were also found to be more likely to fake being busy to avoid an unwanted phone call. Half admit to this opposed to just over a third of men, according to research. Socially skilled people have better qualities to be more successful in lying and that extroverts also tend to lie more often than more introverted people.

According to the study, men’s top five lies were, in order from most to least common: “1. I didn’t have that much to drink 2. Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine 3. I had no phone signal 4. It wasn’t that expensive 5. I’m on my way.”

Women’s top five were: “1. Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine 2. I don’t know where it is, I haven’t touched it 3. It wasn’t that expensive 4. I didn’t have that much to drink 5. I’ve got a headache.”
