Pathological Liars...

I came across this article on pathological liars.. it's really cool and intersting especially if you know someone who has the habit of doing it. Nway, read on if you are intersted.

dessagirl disorder 2005-003: PATHOLOGICAL LYING

A pathological liar believes in the lies, at least at the time that she or he is talking. Their stories tend to be very dramatic. They often portray the person as being smarter, braver, more attractive, or more interesting than she or he really is. Sometimes people begin to catch onto pathological liars because of obvious flaws in the stories. A fairly young man will describe his heroics in the Vietnam war. A homely woman will talk about all the men who fell instantly in love with her. Sometimes the flaws may be more subtle and it may take a knowledgeable person to find them. Often it happens that a pathological liar will be caught out at a party by someone who really was a pilot, really lived in Africa, or really was a fashion model.
Suspect a pathological liar if:
-the stories seem too dramatic or unrealistic
-the lies seem to serve no purpose except to impress people or
-the lies can easily be shown up
Sometimes pathological lying appears to be related to physical causes, such as problems in the brain. Other times they appear to be related to low self-esteem. In any case, good diagnosis and treatment is needed. Contact your healthcare provider for assistance and referrals if needed.

hmm... eto ba ang "picture of the year" na reason kung bakit mo papatalsikin si chuwable sa babuyan...

hehehehe...

teka dessa girl, pano kung talagang pinanganak kalang pathetic??? does it also need good medical diagnosis...hehehehehehe :)

dessa girl said...

talaga. dapat palitan na ni chiefy si chu. nway, DSM IV does not recognize being pathetic as a disorder. so hindi justifiable yung pagkapathetic..let us consult freud!

pathological liar? narinig ko na yan once nung nasa europe ako. wala kasi ako magawa kaya binenta ko yung BMW ko tapos nagpunta ako sa europe tapos nagstay ako dun for 5 months. when i came back to the philippines, i was having a hard time bringing my filipino accent back. ang hirap talaga. ang dami ngang nagkagusto sakin dun sa europe eh kasi ang ganda daw ng complexion ko. haaay nako. sana makabalik ako sa europe para malinis ko na yung apartment ko dun.

so...ano ulit pathological liar?

Uy thanks Dessagirl for the new medical term! Pag may kabarkada akong di ako naniniwala sa kwento nya, sasabihin ko, "you're a pathological liar!" :-)

master CHU said...

ako sir nick may nagamitan nako! nung isang araw may mayabang na obvious na nagsisinungaling tapos sabi ko...

"pare ang pathetic mo! you're nothing but a paleontologist liar! PANGET!"

dessa girl said...

wow naman, watson and chu. i'm glad my blog has helped you have more intelligent conversations nowadays. keep up the good image!

basta ako maldita lang ako pero bad yun magsinungaling...question lang po doc dessa.

ang pathological liar ba pwedeng lumala at maging delusional yun tao or to a worst extent maging schizo??

dessa girl said...

hmm.. tinatamad ako magbasa upang masagot ang katanungan mo. at wala rin akong istock knowledg para umepal.

so... in my own opinion... siguro hindi naman.these pepol are i guess pretty normal except for the the fact that they have low self-esteem kaya sila SUPER IMBENTO MAN!. pag schizophrenic na, nakakatakot na yun! as in talking to imaginary people type! parang sa "a beautiful mind" baga? wag naman mauwi sa ganun.. kawawa ang taung yun! kaya fifol, do not lie! Masama yun!
