We lie to evade problems or to not admit we are wrong.

Some ppl can't control it. I think it starts in childhood. Kids tend to lie, but Is up of the parents to try and talk to them and teach them , what's wrong and what right. In my opinion.

Because most people have more to gain from a lie, than they do from the truth. (Sad but true)

They lie to not get in trouble. $15 taco bell bill, were you high? No, no way.

Lots if reasons. Sometimes they don't like the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts them or will the people they're telling it to so they lie. Sometimes they do it to get away with stuff. There are a lot of reasons that people lie.

People lie on average about three times per conversation, without actually knowing it. Lying is so ingrained in the human mind that we do it without meaning to.

Most lies are things we say so we don't have an argument or have to discuss every single thing that can come up in a conversation. If somebody asks how they look in an outfit, you might say OK even if you don't personally like it. Have you ever said Yes, when your parent asked if you finished your homework? It gets bad when you lie about obligations or become one of those people who lie even when they don't have to.
