(Moved from the discussion page) I'm a liar. i dont know if i can be called a compulsive liar, or something else. I am 30, and the first time i lied that i can remember was in 1st grade. i lost a school book and i lied to my teacher about it for a whole year, don't know why, it seems so stupid now. …i think i acted sick several times during that year, just not to be confronted by my teacher. finally, when my parents found out in parents day that there was some problem, the teacher just gave me a new book and it was over. and if i remember correctly, my parents laughed it all off. i didn't have a miserable childhood, my parents loved me a lot and gave me everything, but i think i know where it started: my mom was a liar, and she always lied to my father about small things. i dont know if why she did it, and if she had this problem before being with him. my father had a very short temper, and i think my mother was afraid of telling him the truth about many things in fear of him shouting. i inherited this - as a child i was afraid of my father's responses, though he was always quick to relax, but i guess as a child you don't think of your father as an ordinary person, and u don't understand that his short temper is his problem and that he has his own issues. i guess i learned my mother's coping method, though i don't remember ever hearing her lie about big things. she also took me in in some of her lies to my father - by telling me to not tell my father this and that, etc., and this probably made things worse for me. the next thing i remember is when i was at high school. i was a very good student, and was considered a "genius" by the people in my class and by the teachers. everything came to me easily in school years, i didn't have to study at all and got excellent grades. it was a problem when i got lost in math in the last two years, and started skipping classes because i didn't know the material and was afraid to ask, and didn't make homework, and two months before the final exams i didn't know how im going to make it. luckily for me, my teacher (who didn't like me naturally) told my mother at parents day about my problem and my mother sent me to a private tutor and i managed to fill in the gaps and get a nice grade at the exams. in the pre- college exams i got an amazing grade, in the top half percent of the population, so i could study anything i wanted. i was abroad for a couple of years - and when i came back it was the next time i remember lying - i told my friends i had a lot of sex, which i haven't done at all. i also had a girlfriend abroad which i lied to - about my sexual experience, about working there and more things. when i came back i started studying in college, but sure enough, just like it was in math in high school, i started trailing immediately, didn't do my homework and stopped arriving, without telling anyone to this day about it. for the next couple of years i told everyone i was studying, and made a lot of lies about the daily college days, including to my parents who paid most of the tuition (for nothing) and to my friends. a year after quitting i started a job. the next year, i met a girl and we fell in love and moved in together. i told her these lies that i live on my own because it seemed more appealing in my mind, and it became more and more elaborated until one day when i was at work she went with my sister somewhere and my sister told her that wasn't true. my girlfriend called me histerically and was so disappointed, because i lied and because she came out as a fool, and she swore me not to lie to her again. afterwards, i got promoted at work and things were pretty good. i still didn't tell her or anybody else about me dropping out of college, but i was feeling that i was on the right career path and that the college issue won't be significant. i finally asked her to marry me and we had it all arranged, but a month before the wedding i was fired. i was getting tired of this place, which led me to prefer anything else to being in the office - including assisting her in her studies and just catching a nap outside of work. i told her i was fired, which was very hard for me to do, but i didn't tell her the reason as to not make her feel guilty. she was very loving and encouraging and we married and went on a holiday. when we came back, it became clear that she wants to have her own business and i found it very exciting to join her and build it together. while she wanted it very much, i told her i would find a job to support us while she builds the business and when the time is right, i'll join her. but i didn't really do anything in that direction - i was afraid that my lack of college degree and my firing circumstances would disqualify me for any job, and i was also hoping that the business will grow and i'd be able to work in it with her full time. i didn't share my feelings with her, because she didn't know about my college history and why i was fired, and i thought i'd put extra pressure on her if i ...

Answer . You don't! The person that is the compulsive liar has to reach out for professional help and it doesn't matter what you say or do, this person has to admit they need help. It truth when they say, "they are always the last to know", meaning, an alcoholic never thinks they have a problem… with alcohol, a compulsive liar never thinks they lie, etc. Until they reach a point in their lives where they have no place to go but the truth about themselves there is nothing anyone can do for them.

Answer . \nPeople with destructive personality traits (such as a pattern of lying) need the help of a mental health professional and even mental health specialists may not be able to *help* someone who exibits this behaviour, UNLESS the person in question recognises that they have a problem and U…NLESS they are seeking to change their behaviour.\n. \nOtherwise, lead by your good example, do not allow yourself to be taken advantage of, perhaps try to convey to your friend how their conduct affects others and how it in turn is also ultimately damaging to him/her and encourage your friend to seek counselling.\n. \nHaving said that, beware of anyone who lies and otherwise craps on you and then asks for your "help" as this is a manipulative ploy designed to get them more mileage out of you and, more likely than not, they revert back to their destructive habits.\n. \nAgain, the "help" this person needs ought to be sought from a PROFESSIONAL and it is really up to the person with the problem to take steps to address THEIR OWN behaviour via whichever avenue they think best -- but this is NOT your problem, nor is it something YOU can do much about.\n. \nMore likely than not, by trying to "help" you'll get suckered again.. Answer . OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) is a serious condition that defies logic and will not be helped with discussion. You can tell your friend that his/her condition isn't real, he/she shouldn't do whatever it is and that it's really harmful for him/her to do whatever it is that is dictated by the OCD, but it won't do any good. The only thing that will truly help is medication. It shouldn't be something that makes him/her feel ashamed, so try to talk about it as openly and "matter-of-fact" as you can. Don't be judgmental. Don't tell him/her that it's all in his/her head and he/she should just "get over it". All of that kind of talk is incredibly counterproductive and causes the sufferer to become even MORE stressed. Some of the medications available are really quite incredible and once the individual can recognize the chemical imbalance component of his/her OCD he/she will be able to feel less of an outcast. Unfortunately, many suffers of OCD recognize the irrational behavior as being counter-productive, but still are drawn to it. Get help for your friend because this is something that you can't solve yourself.. Answer . \nFriends can get educated about the disorder; there are many things a person can do to not contribute to the disorder. Ask a mental health professional, and there are also some excellent books on the subject in libraries and book stores. (MORE)
Are there are any therapy groups for compulsive liars and their loved ones specifically in Chicago because you really want to find something to help you understand your problem and to help your wife?
Answer . First off be sure you have labeled the person well and that it is a diagnosis from a professional and not one that your friends or family may have said. \n. \nYour doctor should know where to send you and your wife for help. Also, you can call your local Mental Health in Chicago and t…hey will help you. Remember, "Mental" does not mean you are crazy. You and your wife have a problem, and by you mentioning you have one too that is the very first step in quickly healing the problem.\n. \nSome people lie because they may have had to while growing up for self preservation; if telling the truth they got a beating instead, then why not lie? Other people lie because they lack self confidence in themselves and so they try to dramatize about certain parts of their lives to make people look up to them or like them more. We all have garbage tied to our tails through life and we each have our own ghosts to wade through and figure out so we can be the best we can be. We aren't perfect.\n. \nYou can be assured if you are both willing to try and both admit to your problems a good therapist or group therapy is a great place to start and with hard work and fast rules you should be able to get through this just fine.\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)
A compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit.Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions.Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small.For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward anduncomfortable while lying feels right. Compul…sive lying is usuallythought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in anenvironment where lying was necessary. A compulsive liar may alsohave difficulties with poor self esteem. For the most part,compulsive liars are not overly manipulative and cunning, ratherthey simply lie out of habit - an automatic response which is hardto break and one that takes its toll on a relationship. Acompulsive liar may have difficulties with poor self esteem. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere are reasons why people become pathological liars and most of the time it's because they have low self esteem. You can see any psychologist that can help you. If you prefer a group then see your doctor and they can help you find a group you can attend.\n. \nGood for you! I'm …proud of you and know you're going to make it because you actually admitted it to yourself. That's one big step!\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)
A Lying Boss . \nYou don't! Keep your respect, because he is sure to blame you for something down the road. Unless you like mental abuse, start looking for another job opportunity.
Demand the truth; you deserve it. . Do not allow a liar to go unchallenged, when you know the truth confront them directly. Do not trust anything they say and tell them so and why. They are depending on your good reputation to validate their lies. Don't ever try to justify their answers or try to… make sense out of them. You will only look like a fool and ruin your respected name. They will play on your love, good manners and innocence. \nBe strong; don't get drawn in. Don't ruin your reputation. \n. \nThey are career manipulatives who will change every detail and story to fit their needs no matter whom it hurts. They will spend more time trying to con you then being honest. They lie to make themselves look better, make others look less than their best, to swindle those who trust them, and lie just to lie. You can watch them concoct their stories in front of your face. If they are adults, save yourself, you dont need them in your life. They will take you down with them. You cannot trust a liar. \n. \nCatch them when their young, there are no cute lies from little kids. \nThey are only training and calculating on how to deceive people.\n. \nBeen there, done that, and now I'm done.\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nPublic humiliation. Call him/her out in front of friends and family. (MORE)
Usually compulsive liars are not confident individuals and they feel the need to dramatize certain events in their lives to impress others. These are some of the signs of a compulsive liar: If the compulsive liar did something wrong and someone else found out they'd lie their way out of it. Telling …others about things in their life that didn't happen. Dramatizing events in their life that didn't go down the way it did. Lying over silly things such as borrowing something from someone and denying they ever had it. Lying about other people. Constantly blaming others for the problems one gets themselves into. These are but a few. If a person has been told they are a compulsive liar they probably are. Compulsive liars often don't mean to be this way, so professional help does help them balance out their lives, face themselves and not be afraid of being who they are or telling the truth and taking the consequences for their own actions.

There is no easy way to get true compulsive liars to stop lying. Many compulsive behaviors are symptoms of deeper mental disorders and may require professional counseling and/or medication to treat the problem.
liar liar What's common amongst compulsive disorders is they're all very difficult to correct. That's if this indivual actually recognizes the problem. (if they don't, it's impossible to correct)When a person has a habit of bending the truth, sugarcoating it, or just deliberately refusing to tell i…t,-- this tells a bit about them. Insecurity is a big factor. He or she has the obligation to meet the needs and demands of their surroundings. Even when he or she knows they fall short. Another important factor is denial. Most of these victoms will have a hard time admitting they've lied even when the truth uncovered proven. Solving this issue is very similar to that of every other addiction or bad habbit--they must do it themselves! You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make them drink. How to help most effectively is revealing to this person that there is no need to constantly over or undertell the truth. Dark always comes to the light no matter what the situation. This person needs to understand that the people around them know what they do. No question. Any sort of compulsive behavior sticks out like a sore thumb. Also that they're making a bed of nails that someday theyre gonna have to lie in. So basically, they have to help themselves (MORE)
Answer . \na cumpulsive liar is a person who lies repeatedly with no belief or personal gain from the lies. A pathological liar is a person who lies repeatedly until they begin to believe their own lies.
Answer . Psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and other mental health personnel use the term 'compulsive lying' when they refer to people who cannot control their lying, that is, people who feel compelled to lie and are aware that they are lying. Therefore, compulsive lying imp…lies impaired ability to control it. The term 'compulsive lying' is not a diagnosis. It is a behavior or a symptom associated with a number of mental disorders [for example, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder]. The term "confabulation" is used to describe lying or invention when the person who is lying is not aware that they are lying. To be more specific, confabulation is treating a fantasy as a fact, without awareness that fantasy has replaced fact." (MORE)
\n. \n. \nBipolar people are very "changey." My brother is bipolar and sometimes he is the coolest, happiest guy in the world, then the next time I call him he won't talk, or he'll be really upset, or I won't be able to get ahold of him. There are a lot of ups and downs, sudden ones; it's not nor…mal moods -- they are exaggerated. Anyway, yeah, if you think someone is bipolar try to get them to a psych.\n. \n Answer \n. \nChronic lying isn't a symptom of being bipolar, but only a qualified physician can make a real diagnosis.

you tell him "why do little things mess up our friendship just be clear don't lie i want our friendship to last forever" in other words tell him or her that you know that their lying and if they don't stop and start becoming a loyal friend then you and his or her friendship will be over because the …most horrible friends are he ones that lie!

Lying fiancé . Trust is absolutely fundamental to any sound relationship, and without honesty I don't see how there can be trust. It's unimportant whether the lying is 'compulsive' or whether it's malicious. Both kinds do a lot of serious damage to relationships. Stop, think and ask yourself how… you're going to spend the rest of your life with someone who lies frequently and habitually.\n. \nJoncey (MORE)
Answer . It is of course just my opinion, but this is not a relationship that is healthy to be a part of. If you are just falling in love, cut your losses and find someone else. Pathological lying is deep-seeded and how can you ever trust them?? Trust is 90% or more of a relationship. Good lu…ck to you.\n. \nI am on this site for the first time and I am the one who posted this question earlier. Thanks for the advice. I wanted to clarify that I have been with this guy since he was 16 and I was eighteen. That was 10 years ago. We were friends in the beginning and saw each other with other people. We dated a touch, then broke up, then dated etc. We eventually dated consecutively for 5 years. I know he loves me more than he could any other girl he knows. It's just that he is a liar and I catch him, he'll admit it and say a bunch of excuses as to why he lied. Sometimes he won't admit it, even when faced with proof. I am so invested in this relationship that I don't just want to never talk to him again (which is what I probably should do), I want him to get better but it seems that no matter how many times I forgive him, he'll eventually go back to his pattern. I do love him, and he's a good-hearted guy. I really don't think he can help himself-he really believes some of the lies he tells. I do believe that he loves me as much as is possible for him to love someone. I'm screwed up to even think about putting up with this anymore. (MORE)
Answer . If he's good, you can't. At least, not until something bad catches up with him.
It is NOT a pathological liar, they are two separate things (look it up if you'd like). Compulsive liar is the correct name, and they are also known as habitual or chronic liars. Answer I think it's pathological liar. You can find out for sure by browsing the web under mental illness.
Answer . I feel You need to forgive the liar first. Then God will do a work in you,
My brother is a compulsive liar, basically, just don't believe anything the person says no matter how belivable it may sound, just start smiling and nodding, one time he made up a story about something a person said about me, so with both people there i confronted him about it and he changed his sto…ry making him look stupid, so just have fun with it and take everything with a grain of salt (MORE)

A compulsive liar can lie about anything no matter how severe it sounds.. ____________________. But he won't tell you he's alive after he's dead.
The best way to deal with compulsive liars at work is to avoidthem. If you notice any trouble starting, you can speak with yourmanager.
There is no specific clinical term for a compulsive liar. Often people lie because they are fearful of rejection or disapproval, or have a sense of inadequacy. If someone lies compulsively, they should get professional help so they can find out what is causing the behavior. A professional would be a… psychiatrist, psychologist, clinical social worker, and other mental health professional. It can also be associated with other mental disorders. When a person lies and is unaware that they are lying, that is referred to as confabulation. (MORE)
He has a complete disregard for the consequences of his words. He is egocentric, thinking only how to engage advantage for his own needs. He is unworthy of trust in any form.
Answer: . Someone who lies even when there's little or no benefit from doing it.
It's very difficult to tell, usually its to protect themselves, but they can't stop, they don't realise what they are doing and its very unlikely they will change. But it is possible to change, I lived with a compulsive liar for years and now he is pretty much cured. Simply tell him/her that you kno…w they have a problem with lying, and ask him to get help. Once he accepts he has a problem it will be easier. (MORE)

\nWe are unsure what you mean by "child." \n. \nFirst of all, be scrupulously honest yourself. Tell the child that it seems to be a problem, and you would like to see if there is some way to help them stop. Then consult a psychologist. This is not an issue that a parent or family member can han…dle on their own. It needs to be addressed by a professional. (MORE)
There are others, just search Google for them... it really depends on what kind of support you are looking for. Please view the related links.
That's a really funny question, but i have the answer: Compulsive liars don't always lie anyways, so if your friend or someone you know says that, and blah blah blah, you can sometimes know when (if) they say that.
You should talk to him/her, let them know that it is bothering you. Tell them that it is hard for you to trust them, and if they really love you, they will stop lieing.
There isn't a place to help that. They gotta grow up and learn. I used to lie so much that noone ever believed what I said until I grew up

A compulsive liar is someone who lies uncontrollably. It is a disease and is not meant to be harmful. Most people do not know that they lie and it becomes a daily thing. It is usually small fibs to make them seem better. they usually have low self esteem and cannot control what they say.
compulsive liars usually lie to impress, so when they are lieing just make up an even more unbelievable story so they know that you know
Pathological is illness, a compulsive liar feels the urge to lie, it can sort of become an illness because they can't stop themselves.
try to work with her... if she does it unintentionally you need to make her realize what she is doing. Do some exercises that involve questions that u both know the answer to ex : what color is this object? how many fingers am i holding up? As for her being a "poser" she just has a dependent persona…lity and hasn't figured out who she really is (MORE)
Eliminate them from your life completely, after giving them one last CLEAR warning, no matter how wrong it feels.
They lie to tell people they have done hard things when they haven't just to act smart.
You should just tell him. Its better to say it then try to make it harder. A true friend or in your condition spouse would tell the friend or spouse what's wrong.
There are many support groups for single parents. You can search on the web or look in your local newspaper for groups in your area. I cannot suggest any without knowing where you are located.
That's a toughie, but I've dealt with one before. You can keep putting up with the lies until it frustrates you, confront them about the problem you see and hopefully end the lying after a serious talk, or choose not to deal with or talk to them at all. Each option has a different outcome. Do what y…ou feel is best for you. (MORE)
Not as a rule. They are just people who feel a strong desire not toshare their sexual orientation, for a huge variety of reasons.
It is not easy, you have to have all of the facts at your disposal and be good at debate. It is not an easy task especially if the thing you are arguing about you know to be true however have no evidence. Pick your moment and catch them in their lies. It helps if that compulsive liar is hurting peop…le with his lies, then you can consult others around you and come up with a good way of dealing with the problem. If all else fails you need to look at the nature of your relationship. Family member? hard one. Friend? aquaintance? work coligue? is the lying hurting people or the buisness you work at. If it is in the work place and it effects the workplace you could bring it to light. You need to be careful though and look at the power dynamic. Could you loose your job if they lie about you, these people can be quite cunning. There is no answer for yuor question because there are not enough added variables. Someone that does not know your situation could give you harmful advice. (MORE)
It means that they cannot control their lying behavior. It tends to get so bad that theses kind of people make lies to cover their lies. It hurts and upsets people as a result and is consider to be a real social disorder.
