Usually when someone who does not normally lie gets caught in one, they won't continue to lie about it because, basically, they aren't very good at lying. Lyng will cause that person considerable stress, and you will be able to see this. You should remember though, that people lie for all sorts of reasons, and whether or not they stick to the lie depends on whether the emotional discomfort of lying outweighs the goal of the lie (for example, if someone is lying to reach an important goal, they may stick to their story).

AnswerWell, it would depend on the lie wouldn't it? If they lied about being somewhere and they werent then they would have to continue to lie to cover it up. If they lied about spending money on something then there could be proof, like a receipt or record. When someone is hiding something and they think they can continue to get away with it then they will. Deception is a hard game to keep straight because somewhere along the line they'll make a mistake or someone will figure it out. Why should someone be typically honest, they should be entirely honest. Once you lie you have to cover it with another and another, etc. They may confess if they have a conscience but then that brings us to the fact that they should have made the right decision in the first place.This one is "Keep your eyes wide open" and your ears.

Is openly denying a verifiable fact a Lie?

A lie is generally considered to be making a statement you know to be false. If a person is ignorant of the truth, their false statement is not necessarily a lie until it is repeated by someone who knows the truth. Denying a verifiable fact out of ignorance is just that - ignorance, and perhaps disbelief. Denying something out of ignorance when you CAN (but haven't) verified is perhaps stubborn or lazy, but not technically a lie. The issue is not whether the fact is verifiable; it's whether you know what you are saying is not true.
