Men Think They’re Better Liars

Men apparently think they’re better liars than women are. Researchers from two universities found men were more than twice as likely to consider themselves “expert liars who got away with it.” They also found that the best liars rely a lot on being good with words, and weaving their lies in among truths, so that it’s harder for others to catch them. So-called expert liars were also most-likely to lie to those close to them. Among those who admitted to lying in general, the most commonly used strategy was to leave out certain information, and those who said they were bad liars said they often were vague when lying. Another finding: Most people choose to lie face-to-face, rather than via text message, phone call, e-mail, and the fewest number of people preferred to lie via social media.¬†¬†(EurekAlert!)
