I was just wondering. What is the amount of lie you tell in a day. I think the average person tells about 5 lies a day. I think the number one lie they tell is "I am fine". When Someone ask how are you. We do not really tell people if we are stressed or ill. What is the most outragious lie you have told in life and how often do you tell a lie. Happy Lotting.

In generally i am an onest person, and sometimes things go wrong for me, because i am too onest. But of course, i lie too, i never counted, but i`m sure that i lie of max. 5 times, it depends of the situation i`m in that day, or mood. Sometimes we lie just for not hurting our dearest persons in our lives, because when we are sad, we make them sad too, of maybe we indispose them too.

They say a little white lie won't hurt anyone. I think it does. It is good for your soul to keep telling the truth. If someone tells me a lie just to make me feel better. I will be more hurt that they don't want my honest reaction.

It`s a way of sparing you, if they tell a lie just not to make you sad.

I try not to tell a lie as much as possible. I hate lying in any case and I know that I don't like being lied to, so I try to respect people enough to not lie to them.If I'm asked how I am I'll be honest whether I'm tired or sick or whatever. I don't think I've ever used "fine" except with my husband and he knows that I'm mad at him. :P

I also hate being lied to. That is why I respect people more if they tell me the truth. I like that yeah but let him know why you are upset with him. It will make it better.He will never know what he is doing wrong. You do want him to correct his wrong. Happy lotting.

I probably do tell about 5 lies a day. On a bad day though maybe ten. Usually its just stupid little things like when someone asks me whats wrong and I say nothing. Or when my mom asks if I cleaned my room and I say yes. Sometimes I lie about how much money I have so people don't ask me to borrow it, since most of my friends never pay me back. Its just little things like that, pretty much harmless.
