Texting appears to be more likely to bring out the liar in you. A new study shows you are more likely to lie via text message than through most other types of communication. Researchers found you lie more often while texting than you do in face-to-face conversations, video chats or audio chats. Meanwhile, the fallout from duplicitous texting appears to be steep. Researchers found people were more enraged when they were lied to via text than they were when people lied to their face.
