Still Alive

You Can Definitely Spot a Liar

Maybe you have good instincts. Or maybe you just have a lot of experience with liars.

Either way, it's pretty hard for someone to pull a fast one on you. You're like a human lie detector.

Nothing like a quiz to prove it :> (That I'm alive - not that I can spot a liar...)

I've spotted millions of liars! Okay, would you believe thousands? How about...
Jul. 22nd, 2008 11:47 am (UTC)
It's basic psychology. I hate it, but I can tell when someone's lying to me most of the time (if not all of the time). Just an instinctual thing. Blah. It's not joy to spot them. lol :>

I'm a total muggins - people lie to me and get away with it all the time.

I'm definitely gullible when it comes to people I know well. But if I'm already distrusting, or don't know a person that well (or if they have a rep for being a liar) I look for signs.

got the same result. good for both of us, although kinda sad, when you think about how you get THAT good spotting liars
Jul. 22nd, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
I had the same result as well. It really is very sad.

i always like asking whoever lied to me about the lie a few months later, to see if they can keep them straight.

so who is cthulhu running with this time? yog sothoth, or nyarlathotep?

Really good liars turn their lies into some "acceptable reality" so you might not ever hear the truth. Those are the seriously deranged ones (like King Richard).

wasn't it twain who said something along the lines of "it's best to tell the truth so you don't have to keep all your lies straight?"

I don't know if it's even a cliche, but it's true.

That's my older sister. She doesn't just lie about things, she re-writes reality and lives in her own version of history. In which, of course, she is eternally sweet, kind, blameless and adored. Yeah, right.
Jul. 23rd, 2008 10:42 am (UTC)
Ugh. That would drive me crazy. Do you ever call her on it?
Jul. 23rd, 2008 05:39 pm (UTC)
Nope. No point, she'd just deny point-blank that she'd ever lied at all. Then she'd go into a high-power fusillade of aggressive talk to batter me into silence and acceptance of her take on the world.

I just content myself with knowing that my youngest sister and Mother are very well aware of the Viper's lies, and that's enough for me.
Jul. 28th, 2008 07:08 am (UTC)
Ugh. I'd just ignore her. That's the only real way to treat ignorance and hostility.
Jul. 22nd, 2008 08:23 pm (UTC)
We have far too much experience with liars and deceivers, I'm thinkin'. Ah well - makes us much the wiser.

Happy birthday, Miss Thang! :P

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! It's a lie!

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
