-Creativity ​in lying has not been topic of much research, but drawing from studies of creativity and deception we can make several ​conclusions, the first being that creativity ​is a crucial part of lyingBeginning research between these two fields ​of creativity and lying have resulted ​in the conclusion that there is a strong link between the study of lying and the study of creativity.+The Creativity ​of Lying:

 +While significant research ​has not yet explored the comparison and relationship between improvisation and conversational lying, ​comparison ​of research ​within these individual topics ​can help provide initial insight and conclusions.

 +Lying as a creative act is most successful with divergent thinkers (1).  Divergent thinking is “used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions” ​ in open state of mind, or an “emergent cognitive fashion” (2)This concept ​of emergent thinking is often referred to in improvisational work,  and is considered ​crucial element ​of good improvisation (CITE SOURCES FROM READING).
