What is a compulsive liar?
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 and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary. A compulsive liar may also have difficulties with poor self esteem. For the most part, compulsive liars are not overly manipulative and cunning, rather they simply lie out of habit - an automatic response which is hard to break and one that takes its toll on a relationship. A compulsive liar may have difficulties with poor self esteem.
What is the difference between a pathological liar and compulsive liar?
Asked in Mental Health
Is there a mental illness When a person believes their lies?
Yes it is called Pathological Liar or Compulsive Liar. If someone is lying to gain something whether it be admiration, power, money, etc. this is a Pathological Liar. If someone is lying about everything even small details or changes stories around for no apparent reason this is a Compulsive Liar. I personally think both are dangerous and both can and/or will lie for some sort of gain. Usually a Compulsive Liar will lie, know it's a lie, and actually believe it. A Pathological Liar might know they are lying and not necessarily believe it but will defend it. Hope this helped.

How do you recover from being with a compulsive liar?
After being in a relationship with a compulsive liar and having it fall to pieces is it possible for you to become a compulsive liar with more demented feelings as your ex?
It's possible, but because you have separated it means you weren't happy in this relationship so you expect honesty and a lot more while a compulsive liar can't help what they say, but know they are wrong about lying and are either in denial or refuse counseling for their problem. As far as you are concerned it's safe to say that you aren't a compulsive liar and it's best to move on and find someone that is better suited for you. Good luck

How can you tell if you are a compulsive liar?
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.
