Most people lie and some people don’t understand why, but there are many reasons why. The Scientists that research of brain activity are named neuroscientists. Scientists believe that lies come from a social region of the brain. When we lie for personal reasons, your amygdala creates a negative feeling that limits the extent of lying. The amygdala fades away when you keep on lying and the more it fades the lies get bigger. For example, if you move to a new house you might not like it or you are not used to it but after sometime you adapt to your new home just like your brain adapting to lies every time you lie. When a person lies constantly, they start to have no emotion over the lies they made.

It is likely that most people lie. The average person lies about 1.65 times a day. This is normal and is in everything, humans, animal, fish, everything lies. Yes it is a bad thing but it’s natural in living things and it will never leave you. It is possible to avoid lying but you can’t get rid of it. Usually when having a conversation with people they lie to you without you even knowing. Getting used to lying a lot will make you more comfortable with it. This means you will lie more often making your brain think it is okay to do this act.
