    Lightbulb INTP lies

    Do INTPs have a tendency to stretch the truth? Or even just create off the wall stories? I am seriously in love with an INTP who says he loves me, too. But sometimes I get these horrible feelings that he is lying to me about things... but when I rationalize it in my head, I can find ways that support what he is saying, but it is so grandiose that it makes me hard to believe it! This is VERY difficult for the ENTJ part of me... please help

    Suggest that you start a new thread and provide examples of what you are talking about.

    Personally I place quite a bit of importance on truth, and being truthful. Which makes sense for the INTP description I would think. If I feel I must withhold something usually I just find ways to avoid putting myself in a position where I would need to lie.

    The INTPs I know closely (my Mum and sister) would never lie exactly. Even when pressed they will tell the exact truth in a way that can be interpreted in several ways. Or leave out some information. The words themselves will be truth though.

    I feel dirty when lying. I'd rather keep quiet than tell a porker. Is it weird that I actually get a buzz out of telling the truth?

    oh intps can lie. yes. we can, i would say its never because of ill-intent, just uncertainty about how to diplomatically or socially-correctly phrase something, that we get so tired of all that and chuck an easier lie right there.

    tho of course, lying to close friends and people who really matter is much rarer.....
