Abstract

Michael Lewis shares his views on the studies that have been conducted to investigate the origins of lying and deception in everyday life. Michael Lewis, a psychologist at Rutgers Medical School, investigates the development of lying as a double-edged social skill in young children. He states that some of these studies have found that particularly children are prone to habits of telling lies about completion of certain tasks assigned to them, despite not performing the given tasks.
