Here's when thinking before acting can prove useful...

What should you know before lying?

2023 November 28 | by Arduino Mancini Effective communication

There are two kinds of lies: the unconscious ones and those that are built to provide a falsified version of facts and circumstances.

Today I want to tell you about the second ones, beginning with the definition of a lie.

A lie is a

statement that does not correspond to facts and circumstances
made to distort the listener’s perception of reality.

As the old saying goes, the lie has short legs and can be discovered easily if other lies are not called to its rescue.

How durable is the Castle of Lies so built?

Difficult, very difficult to defend false claims; every lie has weaknesses that, once identified, make the defence of the initial falsity extremely complex because it is likely to crumble under the blows of well-formulated questions and critical thinking.

How can the liar cope?

The most powerful weapon it can employ is credibility, which can also represent a danger not immediately evident.

Indeed, credibility prompts the listener not to ask questions that could bring out the real situation, and not to investigate so as not to see what might contradict the idea he/she has already crafted.

At the same time, it leads the liar to believe that reputation is an endless asset: and to abuse it.
