 Men are Biggest Liar: Study

Men lie more than women, reveals new study.

It was found that the reasons for lying also differ with gender. While women avoid being honest to spare someone from feeling hurt or upset and men tend to fib to save money or win an argument, the Daily Star reported.

Men are also more likely to be deceitful to get someone else out of trouble, get them something they want or make themselves look good. It also emerged that people of all genders are most likely to lie by saying "I'm fine" when they are unhappy, pretending to like a gift or talking about how much something cost.
