No, as a man myself I don't think he will start a one-man smear campaign against you. That sort of thing takes a lot of energy to maintain, and pretty soon those on the listening end will get pretty tired of his act. The people who care about you will not be swayed by a man who does that sort of thing, and those that might be influenced can be crossed off your Christmas card list with no real loss.

AdviceWhat you need to do is find a peice of information about him that you know he does not want anyone to know about. Don't confront direct but keep dropping cryptic hints and allude to the evidence you heard or know of. No matter how he denies or blatantly lies on top of it.

This will accomlish several things.1) he will fear you. 2) he will stay away from you 3) It will neturalize him. He will still deny it all but isn't as likely to seek vengeance or humiliate you.

Can pathological liars beat liar detector tests?

In many cases, a pathological liar actually believes what they are sayingis true. This is a severmental disorderwhichrequires in-depth therapy. In that case, I believe it is possible for the lie to go undetected. Still, there are differences in opinion as to whether a pathological liar actually knows that what they are saying is indeed a lie. In other words, some would say the pathological liarknows that what they are saying is a lie, but can not help themselves and therefore state the lie. In this case, I believe the lie would be detected. AnswerYes some people can beat the lie detector test because it's not 100% accurate. As the above poster said a pathological liar may beat it, and also a well-trained person who controls their mind and heart rate can also beat it. There is experimentation's in the Army where soldiers are trained to beat any method of obtaining information. The brain is a wonderful thing.

Why are people dumb sometimes?

People can appear "dumb" when they don't apply the necessary thought, attention, or concern to their actions, and the possible repercussions of an action. Sometimes situations are too complex to interpret, or are handled in a habitual way that neglects circumstances that can change.Examples : stepping in new, wet concrete / only realizing your windshield wipers don't work when it is already raining / opening a can of soda right out of a machine that tumbled it / inviting a friend to go skiing, the day after you heard about his broken leg
