Red Flag of a Narcissist#18: Chronic Lying

Narcissists are liars

Learn about the red flags that Narcissists (and other types of manipulative, destructive, and dangerous people) have. Roughly 3-6% of the population is estimated to be a Narcissist, and another 3-6% are thought to be Antisocials (Sociopaths/Psychopaths). This breaks down to be around 1 in every 15 people! These people will destroy your life if given half a chance. It is CRITICAL that you learn the signs, and then ideally pass them on to anyone who will listen.

This is video #18 in the “Red Flags of a Narcissist” series. Video 18 is on chronic lying. All Narcissist lie–pretty much all the time. The sooner you can spot the red flags, the sooner you can move toward getting rid of the Narcissists in your life.

One last thing…

This “Red Flag of a Narcissist” series is not designed to diagnose anyone with a personality disorder. It is designed to present a broad brush look at behaviors that most (if not all) manipulative people tend to have (not just Narcissists). Not all of these red flags are a signal to run for the hills, and a person doesn’t need to have ALL of these flags present to be dangerous or destructive. 

These red flags also occur on a spectrum, meaning that they will be more obvious and troublesome in some people, and not so much in others. 

At the same time, keep in mind that EVERYONE has some of these red flags—however, manipulative people tend to have them to a more troubling degree than normal, non-manipulative people. Keep in mind that Narcissists and Antisocial Personality Disordered people’s red flag behavior is more driven by their lack empathy and remorse, desire to manipulate and exploit other people for their personal gain, which is often not the case with those without these disorders. So don’t panic if you see some of your behavior in these red flags, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a Narcissist, or have a personality disorder. :)

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.

    You ask for comments on the small lies – I was exposed to a mass of Narcissistic lying – small, medium, large – and this was really hard to understand as you say – we normally lie for a reason – or it doesn’t even occur to us to lie about such inane things. I believe it’s a game to them. I agree it’s a victory – but not necessarily consciously – I just think they live in such a world of make believe and fantasy that lying to create that world is just a natural part of that game. If you challenge one of those small lies – I.e I don’t believe you were in Starbucks this morning – the game begins for them. Most likely they will deny saying it – or change the lie – leaving you confused and them happy. I just think lying is some kind of pleasure for them. It’s hard to understand because most of us have a conscience about a lie we tell – they don’t – it’s just another part of the intricate web they weave around themselves. With mine – I believe at times he even believed his own lies – briefly. it’s like acting – practicing for the real thing. If they believe that – they will believe anything I tell them type of thing – so they enjoy themselves learning to lie about anything so they become masters.
