My 13 year old ESFP sister came home from school and told us that she lied today in her teacher. Her ENFJ friend, who is also her "nemesis", lied to her teacher that when she was 8 years old she went to London for Christmas. So my sister lied that she also went to London for Christmas. When she came home she admitted the lie and confessed that she was guilty of it. When I asked her why did she lie, she answered that she wanted to sound better than her ENFJ friend-enemy.
I have lied continuously over the years, with changing motives. I have lied mostly to see if people would believe me, I have taken a true story and made it better, I have lied for attention and prestige, I have lied to prove to me that I can get through any lie that I say and I created a fake story that stained the reputation of a snobbish girl that mocked me behind my back.
My question is if lying is general or if some types are prone to it.
