Why do people lie?
you may not be a chronic liar and may not even know how but sometimes we find ourselves in some awkward situation where we dont have any choice but tell the listener what he wants to hear.
is it because they are insecure, and sometimes they want to say what they think their listeners want to hear.
People lie for all sorts of reasons... depending on the situation at hand; to hide the truth behind the mask...
People lie because they feel like they need to. Sometimes this is justified. A classic example is the man who hid Jews under his floorboard in "Inglorious Bastards.” When the Nazi came looking for Jews, most people would agree it’s morally correct to lie in order to save life. Lying isn’t always a bad thing.
Conversely, there are liars like Casey Anthony. Some people only believe what they choose to believe and become so good at acting because they cannot distinguish the fabricated roles from reality. It’s unfortunate.
Thanks for the question,
People lie because it is easer to say and do ,than telling and submitting to the truth.The truth hurts,so one would rather shy away from it than let it be first in their life.
My own personal philosophy is that if I always tell the truth I never have to worry about what I said to whomever I said it.
So I tend to be honest almost all the time. But there are exceptions. If someone asks me if I think their child is cute I don't say "No he is a hideous beast.". At the same time I might say "Compared to what?". When in doubt always answer a question with a question rather than a lie.
Most of them lie just to get worldly benefits but they don't care that later it will come to light and no matter what happens this can never be negated
either to get what they want or hide something... Some people lie because they don't want to hurt the other person. In ALL cases, it will catch up to them & they will have to lie another lie to cover up the first... etc.

Why do people disguise who they reaaly are, why do people lie, is it possible to be 100% honest?Lying does it exist because of that fear of rejection takes over our very being, is it because we do not trust anyone...

Why do people lie?So this is a continuous pattern for me including everyone around me, the fact that people lie. I'm not talking about the small white lies, I'm talking about the ones that change the game of the story....
