Men Lie Six Times a Day, Study Finds

Researchers have found that men lie six times a day on an average to their partner, boss and colleagues, but women come out with just three. The study of 2,000 Britons also revealed that the most common lie told by both sexes was: “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.” While men are likely to lie about having their last pint and claiming their partner doesn’t look fat in an outift, women avoid telling the truth about their latest shopping purchases.

83 per cent of adults of both sexes said they could easily tell if their partner was lying. But according to body language expert Richard Newman, “Most people can’t read the signals. They assume that if someone is hiding the truth, they would hide their face and avoid eye contact. In fact, the opposite is true. Liars usually do everything they can to convince you of the truth, sitting still and looking at you to watch your reaction. People simply overestimate their skills in this area.” The findings emerged in a poll by 20th Century Fox.
