Roots Of Pathological Lying

Research has demonstrated that an individual is more likely to become a pathological liar in adulthood if that individual:

– grew up in a dysfunctional family

– suffered abuse as a child

– grew up in a family in which there was substance abuse

– lived in constant fear as a child and lying developed as a form of self-protection (e.g .to avoid severe punishment)

– grew up in a household in which dishonesty was common-place (e.g. hypocrisy, false promises, parents lying to a child, family secrets)
