Pathological Lying PERSONALITY DISORDERS Q & A with #LindaCJTurner

Q & A – Does a pathological liar ever tell the truth?

Yes, a pathological liar can tell the truth, but it can be difficult to determine when they are telling the truth and when they are lying.

Pathological lying is a behavior in which a person compulsively lies, often without a clear motive or reason. The lies may be elaborate and convincing, and the person may continue to lie even when confronted with evidence that contradicts their story.

Because pathological lying is a compulsive behavior, it can be difficult for the person to control or stop. They may lie even when there is no apparent benefit to doing so, and they may continue to lie even when it puts them at risk of negative consequences.

However, it is possible for a pathological liar to tell the truth, especially if the truth serves their immediate needs or is easier to tell than a lie. It is important to approach all statements from a pathological liar with a healthy dose of skepticism and to look for corroborating evidence before accepting their claims as true. It is also important to recognize that the underlying issue causing the pathological lying may need to be addressed before the behavior can be changed.
