Or they'll end up putting their foot in their mouth.
Only if you think there is a 'truth'.
It is all lies, so it doesn't matter.
Not at all. Some of them would lie no matter what. They think it is the same as sarcasm. As if to say "You expect a straight answer? How silly!"
I am closely related to a pathological liar. He convinces himself that his lies are truth, and remembers them all. Its disturbing
Good memories? More like good back up plans. There are a couple people I catch occasionally. Amazing what they can spin up. :) usually the same people who swear that "You have a lousy memory". Lol.
That being said, there is also the other side of the coin. Some people truly have done amazing things in their lives.. had amazing experiences.. Some so outlandish that the majority who listen to them assume they are lying. They are then labeled as "compulsive liars". I find it hilarious when the "liars" later produce pictures, or introduce lost friends who validate every single story. Kind of a weird tightrope. This has actually happened to me where an acquaintance came up to me and actually said, "For Three years I've thought you were completely full of shit. I apologize". I never realized he thought I was lying. :)
