Once A Cheater Always A Cheater? Science Has An Answer!

-

Here we are with the biggest problem that may be encountered in a relationship. What would you do if the person you loved and valued the most cheated on you? Would you continue on your way as if nothing had happened, or would you say once a cheater always a cheater? If you're not sure which one to choose or perhaps have already experienced this and already have an answer, you should definitely check out this article, which was originally published on Unilad, and decide for yourself what is right and wrong (like there is any).

As the saying goes: Once a cheater, always a cheater.

Now depending on how skeptical people are, they choose whether or not to believe the depressing proverb. A new study has linked dishonesty and the brain to explain why cheaters seem to continue to have affairs.

The findings, published under the name ‘The brain adapts to dishonesty,‘ claims that a person’s guilt for lying diminishes every time they lie.

It is focused on the amygdala region of the brain which is the part that provides a negative response when humans lie – a response which weakens with every lie. The study speculates ‘that the blunted response to repeated acts of dishonesty may reflect a reduction in the emotional response to these decisions or to their effective assessment and saliency.’

Another possibility is that those who don't feel bad at all in the first place will not feel bad afterwards.

Neil Garret, co-author of the paper:

The idea would be the first time we commit adultery we feel bad about it. But the next time we feel less bad and so on, with the result that we can commit adultery to a greater extent. What our study and others suggest is a powerful factor that prevents us from cheating is our emotional reaction to it, how bad we feel essentially, and the process of adaptation reduces this reaction, thereby allowing us to cheat more. With serial cheaters, it could be the case that they initially felt bad about cheating, but have cheated so much they’ve adapted to their ways and simply don’t feel bad about cheating any more.

So before you lie, remember that each time you do it, you’re enabling yourself in the future.

The study looked at lying in general, and Garrett expressed how it would need to be modified for cheating in relationships because that tends to take place over a shorter timescale.

Think again before you lie!

Hi everyone, I have dealt with the issue of a cheating spouse in the past so you all might find a thing or two useful from my advice. The cheating persisted alongside the lies so I had no choice but to hire a hacker, I went for the one with the highest and best recommendation and he did nothing short of a perfect job for me.. They whole process was done without my husband ever finding out and I got all his deleted and concurrent messages directly on my own smartphone. Don't hesitate to send him a mail if you might need such a service (deephacking17-at-gmail-dot-com)

Hello everyone! I had seen so many recommendations on [email protected], so I contacted him to help me spy on my spouse cell phone. He was really efficient and now I have access to everything including phone calls, and and I get to see all this from my phone without him knowing. Tell him christopher referred you for his services, he'd help. Contact: [email protected]
