I'm good at it and want to see how much I can get away with.

Because it's an integral part of being human. There are dozens of papers written on the topic. Probably better off finding those than asking CR...

I don't lie often, but when I do its because I don't want to hurt someone or I'm trying to save face the latter I almost never do though unless I can get away with it.

I mostly lie because telling the trust would cause more damage, even though it's morally wrong

It's human nature, and is mostly spurred by self-preservation. Everything has a consequence, and it's sometimes worth putting said consequence off for a little while. Unpleasant consequences aren't something that most look forward to. Also, courtesy generally equates deception.

I really cannot remember the last time I flat out lied...
but do I avoid telling the truth to others? Sure. and I do so that I have ammo for later manipulation!

I lie without hesitation if it keeps from awkward situations. Especially if I really want somebody to shut up

I lie for my own amusement and benefit.

But i don't lie to myself that i tell only truth. People who say it simply don't notice they often state something that is not truth but only something that them or their group things as truth.

Only somebody who swore eternal silence can say they speak only truth.

i prefer to tell the truth actually, because nothing good ever coming from lying even if you are "protecting" someone. I rather be in trouble or hated because of the truth. & if i was seriously going to "protect" someone from a bad truthful statement then i dont say anything about it at all and if its brought up i act like i have no idea and just finding out. saves myself from a mess & keeps others happy.
