A study reveals that Children with good memories tell better porkies

The psychology researchers have found that the children who have good memory can tell lies better. A study was conducted in which six or seven years kids were allowed to cheat in a trivia game and lie about the actions taken by them. It was seen that the children who had lied tactfully had a better verbal memory power. The number of words that they could remember tested this. Such children were found to be good at juggling lots of information received by them and they could even tell an add fib. The researchers of the University of North Florida had recruited 114 children from the British Schools for this experiment.

The children were then asked to play a question and answer game and some hidden cameras were placed to notice the children. It was found that the children were peeking at the answers. It was really surprising for the parents to see that a quarter of children were found cheating by looking at the answers. When the researchers questioned the children further, they could find if the child was a good or a bad liar. 

The parents were interested to see how the children maintained their good image even after saying lies. A separate memory test was connected and this showed that a good liar had a better working memory for words. They can keep  a track of lots of verbal information and they don’t keep a track of the images as they seems to be less important for them.
