Research has shown that people lie at least 10 times per week....
According to a study conducted by the University of Massachusetts 60% of people can not have a 10 minute convesation without lying at least once.
Other studies led by deception researchers Aldert Vrij and Bella DePaulo found that between 75% and 82% of lies go undetected. This deception has found to begin from as young as 6 months , Dr Vasudevi Reddy of the University of Portsmouth identified 7 types of deception used by toddlers from the age of 6 months with behaviour such as pretend laughter or crying used as ways of getting attention.
