This, briefly, in a five minute space from UEA. I read the article regarding men and women as liars in various papers, headlined as straight fact.
But what it actually says in the articles, at least the BBC article - do read carefully - is that men and women were asked how often they lied, and that more men than women said they lied more often. As the BBC report says:
Mums are the people mostly likely to be lied to, says the Science Museum who commissioned the survey.
Twenty-five per cent of men say they've lied to their mother, but only 20% of women admit to having lied to their mum.
Note my bold type there. So it is men themselves who claim to be liars.
That's what they say...
