My Inquiry Question is…..What Causes Humans to lie?
This topic interested me because humans lie all the time. That is a fact everyone knows, but why people do it is simply unanswered. Though there are scientific reasons to why it happens, how can one simply lie? A lie can be life-changing or very small but it is still a lie. I am also interested in researching why it is easy for some people to lie while others will break under pressure/stress and reveal the truth. Moreover, why does lying need to be an idea in the human mind, what is so negative about the truth that one must cover it up. I also want to learn the history about why lying has become such a negative idea in the world. These are the main reasons/thoughts that motivated me to research this inquiry question.
