Men are bigger liars than women, says poll

BBC report on Science Museum survey

I guess the assumption here is that everybody told the truth about how often they lied.

Why is it that surveys, telemarketing scripts and sales pitches (which themselves may sometimes be “economical with the truth” or less than totally upfront about their purpose or intentions) so often seem to assume that the respondents’ answers will be honest and straightforward?
