One of the things that many are saying is that we should believe what woman say regarding sexual assaults. I’m curious, is this based upon any definitive scientific study regarding human nature and the propensity for lying based on various situations? In other words are there scientific studies indicating that the human propensity to lie is less likely with this type of event as compared to others?
Part of my professional career has involved working with High School students. I have found that they will often lie without equivocation or any trepidation. In other words it was not something that was in any way difficult. In other words humans lying is not some uncommon occurance that rarely happens and people don’t usually seem uncomfortable about doing so. It happens a lot with humans, I mean who here hasn’t lied at some point in their life? Which again brings me to the question regarding scientific studies on this particular human behavior.
