Why do we tell lies?

Written by listed counsellor/psychotherapist: Jayne Phillips, Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, DipCouns, MBACP Registered

A sociopath is incapable of feelings around their behaviour and will not feel empathy for those they may be hurting with their lies. They even feel a sense of excitement at telling lies, creating a web of deceit. It could be done for fun or this type of behaviour could be used to commit a criminal act. With a sociopath, their needs come first and they will often blame others if ‘found out’. They can quite often be expert at creating a whole new web of lies once they have been discovered.
