Why People Lie
By Online Psychology Degree.

The world is full of liars - from your friends telling you those pants look fine, to the nearly criminal car salesman who assures you that you’re buying a beaut’, there are a hundred little lies in a day, all of different calibers. Sometimes, being lied to doesn’t seem like such a terrible thing (do you really want to hear about your bad hair day?) but other times, it can be extremely damaging. Some people can even be identified after psychoanalysis as pathological liars. But while you might be quick to chastise those around you who fib, there’s a good chance that you’ve told a few whoppers yourself, even just today. The psychology of lying is an odd thing - everyone does it, and no one wants to have it done to them. There are also some very interesting tells that come along with spinning a tall tale; verbal cues, physical tics, and eye movement can all be indicators of untruthfulness. The fact of the matter is, most people begin to lie from a very young age, and we all have very similar reasons for just why we choose to tell fibs. The following infographic takes a look at the truth about lying, from who lies the most to what they lie about, and why.
