The survey of Australian adults by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment found those polled admitted they lied most often to romantic partners, followed by friends and coworkers, the Melbourne Herald-Sun reported Monday.
The pollsters said the most common lies had to do with the whereabouts of the speaker and whether household chores were completed.
The entertainment company said nearly all male respondents admitted exaggerating the number of sexual partners they've had in their lives.
A Fox spokesman said two-thirds of respondents didn't think of themselves as very good liars but would "try to lie if it helped to make their lives a bit easier."
Details of the survey method were not reported.
