[quote:Anonymous Coward 12195955:MV8yMDEzMTYxXzMzODMzNzk2X0JBMjAzQjgx] As many people lie frequently, PF [pathological lying] cannot be identified on the basis of excessive lying alone, but the qualitative nature of the pseudologue’s lies is also quite distinct (cf. King & Ford, 1988; Weston, 1996; Wiersma, 1933). While the theme of lies can be stereotyped or varied in nature (Deutsch, 1922/1982), they are almost always dazzling or fantastical, and often develop into a complicated system of deception. The imaginative fluency of the lies tends to capture public attention, at least in the short term. The lies must keep a certain reference to reality, and though they are often unlikely, they are not beyond the realm of possibility (e.g., ‘[b]I communicate with aliens[/b]’) (cf. Sharrock & Cresswell, 1989; Snyder, 1986). Under close scrutiny the lies can often be easily discredited, and for this reason the lying in PF is frequently noted to be destructive to the liar (cf. Akimoto, 1997; Hardie & Reed, 1998; Healy & Healy, 1915). http://psicodiagnosticoudla.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/21007521_pseudology.pdf Describes so many people/threads on GLP... also, check out this thread: http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1661189/pg1 some pretty amazing "people watching" at GLP, although in general I think it has damaged my faith in humanity... :popcorn: [/quote]
What are the reasons for people telling stories and lies? I know someone who would always lie. I'm not talking about a white lie either. I'm talking about anything from a big, fat lie to make an excuse for something, such as "Oh.. I can't make it in to work today. My uncle Red passed away last night", when really they were just lazy. Or make up a story that they got in a car accident or something.
Then I've heard them make up stories just for the hell of it, without any reason. My dad knows Steve Jobs and he used to work for Apple company in California.
Why do people feel the need to make up pretend stories and tell major lies for an excuse?
Is it for attention?
