    I couldn't lie to save myself. I can omit the truth but anything more than that is pushing me into uncomfortable territory unless I'm being sarcastic, than anything's fair game.

    I'm like this, but if you're somone I dislike or distrust, there is nothing you can do to get the truth out of me. btw I'm just talking about stuff that is personal, not day to day trivia.

    Well i make a point to be completely honest to everyone i know in a completely tactless way which on the few days i actually lie is useful as people hardely ever question whether i'm telling the truth and since there used to lack of tact bneing subtle isn't anything i need to worry about!

    I'm also good at the whole make truth biased thing!

    I definitely can see how NTs could prove to be skilled liars.

    But.. highly intelligent, deeply empathetic, calculating & manipulative INFJs [with or without a skewed moral compass].... well..

    ...and the masses are dubious.

    We never even come up on the radar.
    If we ever did.. people would just assume there was a technical malfunction.

    I certainly won't correct them.

    Sadly, I'm a very good liar. Don't think it's very type related though.

    My INTP friend is a terrible liar.
    She leans more toward keeping things vague/avoiding things, etc.


    I may or may not be an incredibly talented liar...
    I offer pointers sometimes if she asks.

    I'm very good at creating a consistent alternate reality and have a knack for it being vague enough to not arouse suspicion, yet with enough detail to give the impression the event actually happened. I can often convince myself of this reality sometimes too, if I stress its reality. It's very odd. Sometimes I can't remember if I've actually done something or not, because I had told someone I had, and I completely believe it myself. I'm convinced I can totally beat a lie detector.

    EDIT:: Every time I see your avatar, I laugh. It is so funny.

    I can relate to nearly everything you just said, except for convincing myself that the fabrication is in fact reality. I can always recall the details of events, real or otherwise, and I never get the two mixed up (on the extremely rare occasions I use this talent).

    I'm also very much into theatre, and method acting... so I can kind of manipulate my body into emitting the proper overt emotional responses if/when need be.. I mean like really get involved in the story in my head, place myself in that frame of mind... which of course effects physiological responses to an extent. I can cry on cue, tremble, actually hyperventilate (I gave myself an asthma attack doing that before... oops), and given a little time and concentration, I've managed to break a sweat without physically exerting myself.. and vice versa of much of the above described. I don't know how to adequately word it, but I can very easily slip into a frame of mind where I remain so detached and eerily calm, and it's not play-acting at all. I've been in countless strange situations where that's come in handy; I'd go to that place and sincerely feel calm, inside and out amidst the chaos... and since that's a lot of what the polygraph measures, I'm fairly sure I'd have a decent shot at passing it.. or it might just explode.



    I almost took my avatar down because I couldn't stop laughing at him.
    I'm a terrible person.

    I can't lie for shit.

    At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious: morality has nothing to do with type.

    In contrast to NFs, I have to create a lie that will sell itself. NFs seem like they can sell the lie. I can't pull off the body language, mood, whatever.
