Abstract:Lying is a fact of everyday life and arises in at least one quarter of all conversations. Research into lying shows that telling a lie has various consequences, can occur in different contexts and happens for different reasons. However, there is little known about the consequences of a lie for the recipient of the lie. In this study 161 respondents were asked to describe an event from their past, in which a person has been honest with them or an event in which someone has told a lie against them. The deceitful or honest event, the respondents were asked to describe, could have two forms: self-oriented or other-oriented. It was assumed that the respondents who were asked to describe a deceitful event would lie more as a result of describing this past event, than the respondents who were asked to describe a honest event. In addition, it was assumed that as result of describing a self-oriented lie, respondents would lie more than when they described an other-oriented lie. Results of this study show no significant differences in the frequency of lying in a future situation, between the different events the respondents were asked to describe.
