Top 20 things that Brits exaggerate the most

April 5, 2017 , In: Lifestyle tips , With: No Comments

Research from a survey by MSC Cruises has revealed some interesting information. It turns out that the average Brit likes nothing more than to exaggerate where they’ve been, what they’ve eaten, what they’ve read, and more. If this doesn’t surprise you, you may be more surprised when you learn exactly what it is that people are claiming to have done and seen.

Firstly, why are so many Brits exaggerating about their experiences? Simple. They want to appear more cultured. Why? Well, social media probably has quite a lot to do with that, since people tend to exaggerate what they’ve done on Facebook, which can leave others feeling like their experiences simply don’t stack up.

10% of Brits have claimed to enjoy a book that they haven’t yet read. The same amount of people have said they’ve watched a film that they really haven’t seen. And the same goes for eating food that they actually can’t stand.

This attempt to appear more cultured seems to be prevalent with a large number of Brits. 35% said that they would go on a cruise in order to appear more cultured, while 14% say that they’ve been to a country that they’ve never actually visited. (Who’s checking, right?)


So what are these countries and cities that everyone says they’re going to? The top five include New Zealand, New York, Australia, Rome, and Paris. My guess is Australia and New Zealand are just a little too far away for the average person, and since not many other people are prepared to make that trip, it’s easy to do a bit of fudging and pretend like you’ve been.

There are also a number of movies that people say they’ve seen but actually haven’t. These include Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, Fight Club, To Kill a Mockingbird, and It’s a Wonderful Life. I personally haven’t seen any of these, and I’m happy to freely admit this.

The theatre is another common exaggeration, and poor Shakespeare gets a pounding. It turns out that people are happy to falsely say they’ve seen Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and King Lear.

As for books, To Kill a Mockingbird shows up here again. Other favourites include War and Peace, Pride and Prejudice, Life of Pi, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s’ Stone. (Harry Potter? Really? If you’re stretching the truth here, you really need to go and read this book.)

People even exaggerate the types of foods that they like to eat. Top picks for these lies include oysters, quinoa, rare steak, dark chocolate, and sushi.

In case you’re wondering, there’s no need for most Brits to lie about these things. The average Brit watches 7 independent films each year, visits the theatre 4 times, goes travelling to other cities or countries 4 times a year, and reads 16 books. They also go for 9 fine dining experiences and watch 27 documentaries.

If you’re hoping to become more cultured this year, the answer could be to look at some Mediterranean  Cruises. These are a great way to see and do a lot in a short amount of time.
