Lying is a part of life. At least two lies, on average, are told a day. White lies I’m sure, so there’s no need to feel entirely guilty, but where do we lie most? At work.
A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Oxford and Bonn University studied the habits of 750 random people. The study was simple, the random picks were asked to pick “heads” or “tails” at the flip of a coin. “Heads” got them nothing and “tails” would garner a cash prize.
The participants of the study said that they would lie about what side their coin landed on, to receive a cash prize, if they were in a work environment. The study conducted that people are more likely to lie in places that they are less personally connected with.
