About

The (Dis)honesty Project

From plagiarism, to infidelity, to financial fraud, dishonesty seems to be a universal part of the world we live in. Going far beyond scandalous headlines, cheating isn’t just happening on a newsworthy scale, it’s happening in small ways everywhere. It’s human nature to lie, we all do it! But little fibs can snowball into large-scale problems with major implications for society. Studies show that we don't really understand the causes and complexities of dishonesty. Research also indicates that reminding people and ourselves about our own morality makes us behave better.

The (Dis)Honesty Project hopes to create a safe space where we can explore the complicated truth(s) of the matter and improve our own behavior and that of the world around us. The (Dis)Honesty Project is a partnership between bestselling author and behavioral scientist Dan Ariely and SALTY Features. The Project's initiatives include:

Vinny: “A magician’s lie.”

A magician's lie.

“I lied about the status of my love life to my parents.”
“I attributed a quote someone else said to myself.”
“I ‘liked’ a picture on Facebook that actually really annoyed me.
“I lied to my doctor about smoking.”
“In a job interview, I said I was very proficient on the computer. Truth is I get by, and hope to eventually be good.”
“I said "Glad to be here!" when I actually wasn't at all.”
“I told my fellow graduates I had offers from another big company when in truth I did not even interview with that company.”
“I am confused and frustrated with my wife, but I told her everything is fine.”
“I lie regularly to friends who invite me to their parties telling them I have another party to attend or that I will be out of town.”
“I told someone what they wanted to hear, rather than tell them I did not agree with their position and why.”
“I lie about where I'm from.”
