About

With lying so prevalent, what about its impact? Eve Ash and Professor Feldman discuss the many paradoxical effects of lying - from the "spiral effect" (you lied so I'll lie), to suspicion, forgiveness (especially when a well-known figure is popular on other fronts), inauthenticity in relationships, and compartmentalizing. Professor Feldman remarks that people can lead healthy lives while harboring secrets. The longer they do this, the more guilt and anxiety dissipate.

Telling lies produces the following effects:

  • Some feel they have a license to tell lies in return (spiral effect")
  • It creates general suspicion when it's discovered
  • We are also paradoxically forgiving of lies
  • Lies lead to inauthenticity in relationships
  • People can live with lies for many years
