Behavior Bitches
Behavior Bitches Everybody Lies with Kayla Perry, BCBA
/

On today’s episode, we dive into the art of persuasion and the nuances behind lying. Whether we’re embellishing the truth, casting doubt on the truth, or avoiding the sting of awkwardness, deceptive behavior can be both harmful and adaptive. Harmful in the sense that calculated, methodical lying with a malicious intent of deceiving, could cost someone precious parts of their identity. Adaptive in the sense that white lies, or surface-level fibs, can spare someone hurt feelings and a lot of relationship repair. Persuading others to act as a reference for a job interview is a version of lying the same way posting filtered and over-sensationalized Insta posts is a lie. We tell lies to escape unpleasant outcomes, as well as obtaining access to both tangible and intangible things. Dr. Gregory House said it best: everybody lies.
Tune in to divulge your own lying behavior, learn how to align your own motivation with that of others, and conquer your world— one stretched-truth at a time.
Love you. Mean it.
