Research has shown that a normal everyday person will lie on average 3 times for every 10 minutes of conversation. Bearing in mind, a lot of these lies are social ones, such as answering “I’m fine thanks” when the person really isn’t, or “Yes, you look lovely in that”.
So do men lie more often than women?
Men and women actually tend to lie about the same amount of time as each other, however it’s what they lie about that differs. Men lie to make themselves look better in the eyes of others, while women tend to lie to spare feelings and make other people feel better.
