    because they may be: afraid, ashamed or not confortable about telling the truth!
    or they can be just ill
    because lying to me is a sickness Smile

    In addition ,to your reasons people may lie just;
    *To avoid a confrontation and general unpleasantness of the situation.
    *To be liked.
    *To be sociable.
    *To protect privacy.

    *To pump their image up (personal or professional)*As a joke *Because they think its funny
    *To test you
    *Out of fear.
    and for me I think that most of us use white lies to prevent hurting the feeling of someone else
    lol!

    thanks for these reasons i think they are enough to understand from many perspectives the human psych and learn how to deal with liars as sick people ...

    The fundamental reason of why people lie is "fear". It can be a fear of harm,punishment, rejection or loss.
    When people feel that their self-esteem is threatened, they immediately begin to lie.[img]
