Study: kids can lie better than adults

Not always parents can spot a lie in the words of their children. This is indicated by the results of the experiment are scientists from Brock University and the University of Toronto. They found that children lie is not worse than adults.

Scientists conducted an experiment. 72 adult volunteers listened to stories of children and evaluated the degree of veracity heard on a 100-point scale. The video was made by children aged 8 to 16 years. They shared various facts. Thus they forbade the children to deceive adults.

Interestingly, only some of the children spoke only the truth. Parents would tell a lie only in 50% of cases. Scientists in the study came to the conclusion and found: age has no effect on the credibility of the deception.
