I go to extreme lengths to discover whether someone is honest or a liar

I am an honest but paranoid person. When I think someone is lying to me (which seems to happen often because I come across as a doormat) I will spend a great deal of time coming up with an elaborate scheme to expose them for the piece of shit that they are.

Is It Normal?

  • Stop worrying about it and focus on other things. It doesn't matter much if a person you spoke to was lying when they said they had 10 beers and really they only had 5.

    If you're talking about people close to you lying about serious stuff then maybe it's time to get some new friends?

  • Lol honestly dude I think you should just give people a chance. I understand its hard to trust people and all, but you can't always look for the bad things. Let go of your past because not everyone is the same, if a new person is a liar then move on to the next because you're gonna meet many people in your life and making those assumptions won't help you.

  • Yeah being paranoid on if someone is bullshiting you is not a good way to go about things. Just be a pessimist about everything people say, because then people will at least know that’s an aspect of you.

  • You say that you're a paranoid person; have you ever seeked help from a professional in managing that? Having struggled with paranoid thoughts myself, I have found that talking to a therapist and working with them on it have been very helpful in keeping me in a good and level headspace.

  • It's usually not necessary to do extensive snooping, or stalking to figure out that someone is a liar. Is it possible that you might be hoping that the person is not a liar? Is it possible that you desperately want to live in denial which is why you are looking for very definite evidence of the person in fact being a liar? Is it possible that you might already know someone is not truthful on some level, but don't want to believe it?

    Sorry, I just might be talking out my ass, but then again some of this might ring true to you.

  • If you look for the bad in people you'll find it.

    Everyone lies. Yourself included. Do you consider yourself a piece of shit as well?
