The Time Of Day Are You Most Likely To Be Lied To

If you need a truthful answer and you don’t want to be lied to, there are good times and bad times during the day to be asking the question.

A study done by Harvard University says the most truthful time of the day is in the morning. And things apparently don’t get more honest throughout the day. As a matter of fact, it seems to be the opposite.

Research shows that people are 22% more likely to fib after midday, and 44% more likely to tell a lie in the afternoon. So now the question is why?

Well, according to the research, reported at msn.com, the course of normal daily activities  lower self control and cause dishonest behavior. And by the way, if you’re tired or hungry the lies will flow more easily as well.

That’s a lot to consider when you’re trying to figure out if somebody’s telling you the truth or not, but this might be a plan. If you’re looking for the truth, get to somebody early, buy them breakfast and tell them you need the answer before noon. I think that covers everything.
