COMPULSIVE LIAR: Someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood. It’s a habit and automatic response which is too difficult for them to break. To them, there is no difference between a lie and the truth and when confronted with a lie they shift the blame by attacking the people accusing him of lying.
SOCIOPATH: Defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented and uses lies to get their way. (close the deal) They have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. They are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways.
