Do Michigan Residents Cheat?
You know the saying. “Cheaters never win, and winners never cheat.” Well, let’s hope that saying is true, but regardless, a new study is out that looks at which states cheat the most. So, do Michigan residents cheat? We’re talking about cheating in personal relationships, but also in everyday situations.
“From fudging your work hours to straying from the rules of a diet, opportunities for dishonesty seem to lurk around every corner,” writes Solitairebliss.com, the site that conducted the study. “Whether it’s because of a short attention span, peer pressure, or even a competitive nature, people cheat all the time. Even with our solitaire game, we’ve noticed people use tricks to improve their scores.” They add that they were “curious how frequently people cheat and what they cheat the most on,” so they went ahead and did a study to find out where in the U.S. people cheat the most. As for methodology, “We asked nearly 2,000 individuals about the myriad of ways they might cheat in their adult lives. Who are the biggest culprits, and which states house the most honest citizens?”
The worst state for cheating is Texas. “Texas, topping the list with a cheating score of 63.70, sees 51% of its residents sneaking ahead in lines and 45% admitting to workplace deceits,” the article states. They add that Alabama is “just a hair behind,” and it has the highest percentage of diet cheaters at 76%. Meanwhile, the state with the fewest cheaters is New Mexico, followed by Maryland and Minnesota. Missouri and Colorado are also states with the fewest cheaters, as they round out the top five.
So, where are we? Michigan is actually high on the list, at No. 9 out of all of the states. Let’s hope we get a little more honest one of these days. Find the full list of the states that cheat the most here.
