New research says the average person lies four times a day!

Humans are not perfect and all lies are not created equal.
A white lie could be a harmless, trivial lie told to avoid hurting someone’s feelings.
More severe ones are serious and can reveal a lot of negative things about a person.
Being authentic is a better goal – young people often mention authenticity as one of the characteristics they crave – reliable, accurate.
One who is being authentic is less likely to be one who lies.
