I'm social scientist and author Dan Ariely. I study irrationality, dishonesty and why we lie. Ask me anything!
Hey reddit, I'm Dan Ariely, a behavioral economist, professor of psychology and author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty.
I'm working on a documentary called (Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies, a fascinating look into the human tendency to be dishonest, from little white lies to infidelity and plagiarism. You can check out our Kickstarter here.
Here's my proof. Ask me anything!
EDIT: Thanks everyone for all the questions and the hospitality.
