People who lie often are more likely to be deceived

  According to a study published in the British Journal of Social Psychology by the Cognitive Psychology Research Group at the University of Waterloo in Canada, if a person often lies and tries to deceive others, his ability to distinguish between fact and fiction is poor and easy. Be deceived by lies and believe false and misinformation.
  The research team defined a lie as spreading misleading information in a way that impresses and persuades, regardless of whether it’s true. The study, which tested 826 Americans and Canadians, had participants read pseudoscientific descriptions and fake news headlines, and were tested on cognitive abilities, insight, intellectual overconfidence, and thinking skills for authenticity, Evaluation of accuracy and depth.
  The results show that lies can be divided into two categories: “persuasive” and “avoidant”. The “persuasive” is characterized by misleading exaggeration and embellishment to impress, persuade, and agree with others’ lies; the “avoidant” is to avoid speaking too frankly, which may lead to emotional or reputational damage. Say something irrelevant, or react in a roundabout way. Research has found that the more people who love to mislead others, the more likely they are to be deceived by various false information, which has nothing to do with his cognitive ability, insight and whether he thinks.
