keeping secrets,moving-on,confidential,and many other reasons why they're lying...but one thing for sure..they want to be perfect..you know,they lie to protect their weaknesses,they lie to keep their true identity,they lie for their sake...

but im not saying all lies are a really bad idea...sometimes people lie so they wont hurt other,they want their relation stick..


everyone has a secret that even themselves dont know it


figure it out,you'll know why you and other people lie..

"Lying is not only excusable; it is not only innocent; it is, above all, necessary and unavoidable. Without the ameliorations that it offers, life would become a mere syllogism and hence too metallic to be borne."

-Henry Louis Mencken

I really do not believe in this, but I kind of curious what other would say about this.

hahaha

anyways to my post, its natural to lie. its true that alot of human cultivation is built of truth and trust. but its survival of the fittest, you do things in your favor. being witty and smart is derived from the instinct to lie. kindness is also a lie. people developed it for the reason to survive in a social environment.

Okay, even though telling a lie is bad we all do it. Once you see the consequences of your lie`s then you will realize your mistake.

tl;dr

This is a question I've thought about quite often, myself. "Why do people have to lie?" except in my example, as I play a number of MMORPGames, I find people, specifically in Mabinogi, who claim to be much, much, higher level than they are or claim to have been playing the game longer than they have.

For example: One player claimed to be one of the first players on the server starting six years ago. The server in question was 2 years old at the time .What is the point to something like this?

Here's what I think; People lie about their abilities, experiences, and belongings because they want to look as good or better than the others around them or, in some cases, they want to look inferior to those around them and not be the person another would aspire to be. (yes, that is a stab at modesty. Modesty is often a kinder form of lying... not that you should be arrogant either, just be real).

People lie for multitude of reasons.

They might lie due to shame or embarrassment.

They might lie to spare someone a painful truth.

They might lie because telling the truth would result in a bad consequence.

They might lie because it's a compulsive habit, or because they're crazy and they view it as the truth.

They might lie because they think it's not a big deal (white lie).

Etc. etc. etc.

You could literally write volumes upon volumes about the history of lying, the way lies are process by the brain, notable lies from famous people, the psychology of lying, etc.

Society is built on lies. An honest man wouldn't make it very far.
