The researchers also ranked participants in terms of how neurotic, extroverted, conscientious, agreeable, and/or open they were, based on certain personality traits.

The online daters also completed a questionnaire to assess to what degree they were capable of putting on a "social performance" and/or altering their behavior during face-to-face meetings, simply to suit particular people and changing circumstances.

As a whole, those who indulged in such behaviors -- generally driven by an interest in being liked, fitting in, and/or looking good -- were characterized as "self-monitors" -- people who are predisposed to stage-manage the impressions they make on others.

According to the study, patrons of the online dating site were no more or less likely to lie about themselves than people who find dates the old-fashioned way via work, recreation or friends.

It was an individual's personality that seemed to determine whether they would lie or bend the truth in the virtual world.

For example, being "adventurous" and "open" to new experiences lowered the likelihood of lying online, presumably because such individuals felt they were interesting enough to begin with.

On the other hand, while extroverts were less likely than introverts to misrepresent their personal interests, they were more likely to lie about their prior relationship history online. The authors speculated that this could be a function of extroverts having had a more "active" past then their introverted colleagues -- a fact they might prefer not to highlight.

People who tended to shift their behavior to create more favorable impressions in "real-world" meetings -- so-called "high self-monitors"-- were most likely to try to deceive others online, the team found.
