Why do people lie?

Did you ever ask yourself that question? People can lie to hide some fault, some mistake, some secret... Also can lie to not spoil some surprise or not hurt someone (and many others reasons). What would be your reason for lying?

@TheInvisibleMan I believe people lie because they do not know how to tell the truth and have to make something. They also have to keep all their lies straight so they do not give themselves away.

@TheInvisibleMan I try to tell the truth. I think people lie because they do not know how to tell the truth if they tried and find lying much easier to do. They just have to keep track of all their lies.

There may be different reasons. I lie if someone gets hurt by the truth. Do you lie?

It depends upon the situation. I don't like to hurt anyone

Sometimes I lie a bit because it is easier than saying the truth. For example, if someone said, do you like TV, then I might say yeah just so I won't have to face the common response, "Why not?" and have to explain my position and my 'radical' opinion.

Lies will always be bitter in the end, no matter how sweet you made it at the beginning.
