People who believe their own lies. Once I didn’t think it was possible, but now I do. I have met too many of those type of people. The next biggest problem is not only that they believe their own lies, but also they have to tell them to you over and over and you can’t leave until they are finished. How polite is too polite?
The lies that people who believe their own lies tell are almost always preposterous. Usually you don’t have to be an expert in the area he or she is talking about to know that the story you just heard can’t possibly be true. For example, just how many life threatening operations can a person have in their life and still be alive to talk about them?
If almost any listener can’t believe the lies that people who believe their own lies tell, how do the liars believe them? The stories that they tell are usually fantastic and are designed to astound the listener and stupefy the audience. These liars continue to tell these stories over and over because they think that these tales will have this desired effect on the audience. They especially love to have new listeners who haven’t heard their stories before; but they often don’t stop to check and usually don’t remember or care if the listener has heard these stories before.
What is strangest of all about the people who believe their own lies is that as long as they have the floor, they don’t care whether they have told the story before or not. Would you like me to introduce you to one of these people? I didn’t think so. There are certain people’s places that people don’t like to stop by even if they have a perfectly good reason to do so. You know why of course. Then there are people who know they are lying and are not telling the truth, but they don’t care because it doesn’t suit their purposes to tell the truth.
