Lie... hmmm..? but why ?

Some people are good at playing with words..and they even good at lying. I just cannot understand... infact.. I try to ignore... but the more I ignore.. more lies are made...so apa I buat... 'klik klik klik klik' - habis cerita! And I read series of psychological studies, focusing on students who lie on their grade and in fact, such act did not induces anxiety at all. They found out that people who lie often work to live up to the enhanced self-images they project. The findings imply that some kinds of deception are aimed more at the deceiver than at the audience, and they may help in distinguishing braggarts and posers from those who are expressing personal aspirations, however clumsily. Hmmm kelakar.. but aren't they just fool themselves? "Ibarat menepuk air di dulang.. terpercik di muka sendiri" Psychologists have studied that these people are those with guilty knowledge — when they are highly motivated to get away with their lies and even THEY CREATE MORE LIES ........ So why?? Based from my readings... and experience dealing with these group of people, one of the reasons why someone tells a lie is because of the fear of possible consequences involved when telling the truth. They normally hiding something from their friends and family members -- opting to tell a lie rather than being punished for telling the truth... but poor thing laa for the family members tu.... Anther reason why people lie, is just wanna improving their own image in the eyes of their friends and families.In order to uplift their social on par with others, a person would often create stories, usually on the spot, to make sure that the other party is kicked out of the limelight. But they have forgotten THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO DETECT if what they say are just another lie...or even their gestures... body language... eyes movement .. kan adik Raja Kamariah? She should know all these.... she studied cognitive psychology... she should explain better... This psychology of lying is just a temporary rise on the social ladder, and will often be replaced with embarrassment when the truth comes out... and it depends on what circumstances... but ... they will make fool of themselves.... Well, people may lie due to the fear of the consequences when they tell the truth or to boost their self-image?? It depends .... but I am tired with these people... 'berlagak pandai... tapi sebenarnya kepandaian itu memperlihatkan kebodohannya'
