Are You A Cheater?

From David Desteno, Psychologist and Author of “Out of Character”

Cheating is more common than most of us think. Sometimes, we cheat and don’t even realize it because our mind provides automatic justifications that make our actions seem appropriate. To find out whether you may be a cheater, even just sometimes, take the quiz below. As you’re thinking about the questions, do not rely on any justifications to determine your answers – just provide an answer that represents your actual behavior. For example, if the question is “Did you ever lie to a friend?” answer it based on how many times you’ve lied whether or not you think that lie was justifiable (e.g., to protect their feelings, etc.).
