    The purpose of a lie is to (manipulate the thoughts/beliefs and the reactions) of the listener. Generally speaking there are two reasons why people lie.
    1. To avoid loss of some kind, painful repercussions, or hurting/disappointing others with the truth. They want to look good/come off as impressive and score some points.

    2. To keep the thrill alive! Whatever they've been up to they don't want to stop and it is assumed if you knew you'd want them to stop.

    Sometimes it's necessary, especially in business, to overcome hurdles and setbacks. If you don't say the right words, you don't get the prizes or opportunities. If every business that told lies had to shut down, there would be no businesses open.
