023: Ask Andi series—Lying May Be Your Brain's Fault

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 8, 2017 6:00:00 AM


Eighth episode of Ask Andi

Here is the 8th episode of my Ask Andi series—short 15 minute podcasts every Friday where I take a question and then offer tools, tips and strategies to help you re-think it and tackle it in new ways. In today's episode, I talk about how as humans, we are born to lie. In fact, lies to some extent keep our relationships, even our cultures and societies, functioning. I also examine the question: Should we always be entirely truthful?

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Your “story-brain,” aka the reason you lie
  • How often people lie and how you’re included from those numbers
  • What a lie really is
  • The five rules of lying
  • Shared perceptions of reality
  • Whether lack of truth always equalls a lie
  • If our relationships would thrive without lying
  • Using lies to solidify the abstraction of reality
