5. Pathological lying
Everybody lies. However, not everybody is a pathological liar. This is what mental health professionals call “Pseudologia fantastica.” This is considered to be one of the elements in diagnosing psychopathy, according to mental health professionals. Psychopaths not only lie about little things, like what they had for dinner, but they also lie about big things, like which college they attended. Researchers have claimed that psychopaths lie in order to control others by manipulating them.
