    The whole thing was insanely elaborate, and I'm sorry if my story doesn't seem entirely coherent.


    Your friend is funny.

    Sometimes I just want to joke. I always clear up the confusion after I've gotten the (hilarious) reaction I wanted. Also, sometimes people can't spot joking, so I can see this being confused for lying.


    But I'd actually say I'm the opposite of a liar. I tell the truth even when I probably shouldn't, and this causes problems sometimes.
    +1

    When I was a kid, I used to lie because I loved story-telling or seeing people's reaction to fantastical stories or stupid lies like I had a sibling but they died (cuz I didn't want to be an only child). Or, in Gr 6, telling my best friend (still bfs to this day), that a dude liked her and wanted a love letter and pics from her, and for my amusement, seeing her give her best photos and these flowery poetry for 'him', with perfumed and lipstick-kissed notes, etc. And, how she'd bat her eyelashes when she met him at a party after, to her puzzlement at his puzzlement and hairy eyeballs towards her, like, wtf is up with this girl. Dumbass shyte like that. But, then, I grew up, understood conscience over own amusement. And, all was right with the world.

    I don't think lying is type-dependent.

    I guess technically these are lies,but I don't consider them lies in the insidious sociopathic sense of evil manipulation.

    So true. I had a particularly harrowing but entertaining experience in Paris once.When I got home I told some of my friends like 65% of what happened (leaving out stuff like the gypsy who stopped me in the middle of the street to tell me someone had cursed me by burying a clump of my hair in a graveyard or a guy at the airport who was trying to get me to join his stable of prostitutes) and I could tell they were like "yeah right". I couldn't help but think,oh if you only knew the stuff I was leaving out :yim_rolling_on_the_




    When I was a kid, I used to lie because I loved story-telling or seeing people's reaction to fantastical stories or stupid lies like I had a sibling but they died (cuz I didn't want to be an only child).
    OMG same here! I remember in kindergarten for some reason they showed us Monkee reruns Anyway I had everyone in my class convinced that they lived at my house. Every day I came in they ask what adventures we got into the day before. OOOH it's nice having an eager audience, isn't it?

    You guys are entertaining.

    And of course, he would often cite hypothetical scenarios about video games and other geeky jargon.

    ^ That is exactly like Mike. He would always be amused at the reactions of other children. Even more amusing was that sometimes other people would try to "out-lie" him. Meanwhile, Mike could see my suspicion through the grin on my face.

    Oh man, good memories.

    It was a double-edged sword. I loved a rapt audience, it fed my juvenile ego. But, at the same time:

    My rationalization: It was a measuring stick for me to evaluate those who were 'too stupid', hence, easily fooled, meaning, they 'deserved' to be lied to for not calling my bluff. Life is not kind to stupidity, so why should I be? I'd rather laugh at them, and amuse myself with their brain cuz they surely weren't making use of it themselves.

    Again, ^ when I was a idiotic kid. I've grown up, swear....

    Btw, in my personal experience, INFPs were my most fave targets. Their cute little daydreaming minds. Ripe for the picking.
