    Default How do I lie to an ISTJ?

    hypothetically if this situation we're to arise... haha

    My teacher going through his attendance records notices that I have been absent for a particular day. They ask me to confirm if I was present. Assuming I wish to lie, how should I go about it?

    a) assertive: Just a straight succinct "yes I was there."
    b) modest: Yes with a possible excuse like I missed the first half because of an interview followed by an offer of someone to vouch for me.
    c) abstract: Allow him to rationalize an excuse. "yes, I've been to every class, perhaps I was just absent for attendance.

    ^That.


    And you're going to get your ass in more trouble if you get caught lying. If you're in college, that falls under academic dishonesty.

    hmmm so no one is interested in identifying how they themselves are prone to being lied to? For me I feel like I'm more prone to assertive people just cause there's less to work on.

    basic guide to lying:

    speak normally.
    be confident. don't falter. don't hesitate. don't go back on what you say.
    look slightly confused when they question you.
    get good at forging documents on photoshop for when your lies don't work.
    avoid lying whenever possible.

    Don't lie to an ISTJ. You can lose ANY credibility you have in an instant, if you get caught.

    If you must, it better be life or death. The last thing you want is lose trust over stupid, trivial matters.

    I don't know why, but I just really imagine this all ending badly...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
