The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide.
The why is a bit more complicated and diverse, but the core goal is always because of the subject wanting something and deception is often a straight forward tool to acquire it – including pathological and compulsive liars.
Deception is indeed a survival-instinct but to the vast majority of people, it still feels unnatural and forced. This along with the strain of additional mental processing causes the body to react abnormally and involuntarily.
The guidelines and indicators of deception will be further discussed for practical applications in the real world. Into each parts with the continuation of this series.
