Sept 14, 2010 Dirty lies: Why fibbing makes we reach for the soap http://www.lemondrop.co.uk/ Scientists have discovered that telling lies really does make us feel dirty and we're more likely to reach for soap or mouthwash after we've been telling porkies. A team of psychologists at the University of Michigan analyzed the behavior of 87 people who had either lied or told the truth. Those that told verbal lies were more likely to reach for the mouthwash, while those who told lies in emails were more likely to want to wash their hands afterwards. Immediately after leaving a written or spoken message, participants rated the desirability of several products, including mouthwash and hand sanitizer, as part of a supposed marketing survey and reported how much they were willing to pay for each product. Those who lied on the phone were willing to pay more for mouthwash than those who told the truth, and those who lied on email wanted the hand sanitizer more. Spike Lee, who led the study, said: "The references to 'dirty hands' or 'dirty mouths' in everyday language suggest that people think about abstract issues of moral purity in terms of more concrete experiences with physical purity. "Not only do people want to clean after a dirty deed, they want to clean the specific body part involved." 1. What is this? 2. Who makes this? 3. Where is it made? 4. Where might you buy it? 5.
