Because it's Tell the Truth Day ... Can you guess which generation lies the most? We’re looking at you, Millennials. According to a new survey, Millennials (people born between 1981 and 1996) fib more than other generations. Thirteen percent of Millennials admitted to lying at least once a day, compared to just 2% of the Boomers surveyed. 5% of Gen Xers and Gen Z (those born from 1996 to 2010) copped to lying at least once a day. More than 30% of the Millennials surveyed said they lied on their resume and 40% said they lied to their boss to “avoid embarrassment.” When it comes to fibbing on social media, Millennials and Gen Z are pretty equal – with 23% of Millennials and 21% of Gen Z saying they lied on social media to impress others.
