Weigh in.  Jay O’Conner Chairman & CEO WCNTV.   “Love all, trust a few” – but whatever you do, don’t believe men.   A study released today reveals the Bard was not far off, though it suggests one sex is rather more reliable than the other.   According to the survey, the average male tells 1,092 lies every year – roughly three a day. And in so doing, he is less likely to suffer a guilty conscience than his female counterpart.   By contrast, the average woman will come out with 728 porkies per year – fibbing twice a day. And while men said their lies were most likely to relate to their drinking habits, the most popular female falsehood is: “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.” According to the findings, people are most likely to spin a yarn to their mothers with 25% of men and 20% of women admitting to this.   By comparison, only 10% of respondents said they were likely to deceive their partners. But while 82% of females questioned said telling a lie ate away at their conscience, only 70% of men confessed to pangs of guilt. Some 75% of people polled agreed it was “ok” to fib to save someone’s feelings.
