The 4 Most Common White Lies Adults Have Told

Things aren't always what they seem - 90% of adults admit to having told a white lie.

KRC Research's Pulse Poll asked adults to be honest about when they're not being honest, and revealed the most common things you should question that someone tells you.

Here are the four most common things adults admit to having lied about:

  • Their whereabouts. Your friend might not be where they say they are - 35% of adults have lied about their whereabouts.
  • Their preferences. Does your sweetheart really want to go see the newest chick flick? 29% of adults have lied about their preferences.
  • Their income. Champagne tastes on a beer budget - 22% of adults have lied about how much money they make.
  • Their age. There's no harm in skipping a birthday . . . or a few - 16% of adults have lied about how old they are.

Less common lies adults have told include their relationship status (14%), their professional qualifications (10%) and their height (6%).
