  • A pathological liar is someone that doesn't know how to tell the truth. There could be many reasons for this behavior. The person wasn't treated well by their parents and made to feel like a sub zero human being, so they lie or dramatize their life events to impress their peers. It also could be a person that is totally spoiled and never made to face consequences for their behavior. Their personality may not fit in with most of their peers so they lie to impress their peers (it generally back fires.) They could simply be lazy and not work at improving themselves so lying is easier to them than actually telling the truth. What liars don't get is they stand out like a sore thumb in a crowd. There is help for pathological liars, but most will never admit to it and therefore few will seek help for this condition.
  • A Pathological Liar is someone who lies all the time - it's a habit of theirs and they don't really see it as wrong.
  • A pathological liar is someone who often embellishes his or her stories in a way that he or she believes will impress people. Some think a pathological liar is different from a normal liar in that a pathological liar believes the lie he or she is telling to be true (at least in public) and is "playing" the role. It is not clear, however, that this is the case, and others hold that pathological liars know precisely what they are doing. Making up stories and at the same time believing them is known as confabulation. The term "pathological liar" is not an official clinical diagnosis however most psychiatrists agree that pathological lying is often the result of a mental disorder or low self-esteem.
