I enjoy playing 'characters' in a lie

I like to lie, i find it fun. The more elaborate the lie, the better. I like to weave them together into a story of their own, altering false perceptions and tone to make it believable all the while making sure none of the layers ever contradict each other. It's like a craft; with a few omissions here a few altered behaviors there or taking advantage of recent changes in reality to shape how people perceive, what they think, and deceive them. No, i don't lie to destroy or ruin relationships or even get what i couldn't normally, i just do it for fun. If I did it maliciously i wouldn't be asking; i know malicious lies aren't normal. The way i do it doesn't hurt them. i just find it entertaining.

Is It Normal?

  • No, I don't think what you're doing is normal. I think that lying maliciously is bad, but it's more understandable than your hobby here.

    It sounds to me like you have a creative spirit. You'd do well to direct your passion towards acting or writing. Your love for creating personas and storytelling would make you very good in these fields. Next time you think of a clever lie, why not try writing it down and making a short story?

    There are healthy ways to satisfy your urges my friend. Lying to people (even without malicious intent) will damage your credibility as a person. You never want that for yourself (obviously).

    • See, I do write. I think like a writer. I just sort of practice each by doing the other.

  • Write a book. I bet you'll become a great crime/mystery/action author someday:) Don't waste your talent into something like that and start writing those stories!;)

  • I see where you're coming from. I'm a habitual liar, raised to lie. I like to join sites under a false name and pretend to be another person entirely, "roleplay" if you will. I don't do it as much though mostly because I write stories.

    In reply you said you think like a writer, so maybe you should get out and try to write. It's wonderful being able to write because you can basically fabricate anything and it's not a lie, it's your world.

    Writing is like lucid dreaming, if you can dream it, you can do it.
