Does Texting Make Lying Easier?
A new study has found that people tend to lie more over text message than in person. I think that’s pretty accurate, considering you don’t have to look the person in the face. Therefore, they can’t tell that you’re lying and you don’t have to feel guilty about the deception because you won’t see the disappointed or doubtful look on their face. Maybe you feel that over text message, you can say things a lot easier and you won’t get all the back and forth responses you’d get in person. Do you find yourself lying a lot more over text message? If so, is it for any of the reasons stated above or is there another explanation? I feel it’s just another reason why relationships may be hindered via texting. People can be cowardly and hide behind the text.
