It’s all a matter of perspective….


If there is anything I hate worse than a liar, it’s a hypocrite…people who put on a facade to cover up who (or what) they really are…guess it’s the same as being a liar. You be the judge:
 
liar [ˈlaɪə]

n

a person who has lied or lies repeatedly
 

hyp·o·crite

   /ˈhɪpəkrɪt/Show Spelled[hip-uh-krit]Show IPA

noun

1.

a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2.

a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

I have far more respect for people who are simply upfront as to who or what they are. I may not like you per say but I sure as hell dislike you less than someone who tries to put on airs of being someone who they are not.
 
I guess the older I become the less patience I tend to have to sift through b.s. 
Why do people lie? Is it a learned behavior? Are they shallow people setting out to simply deceive others taught from childhood that it’s ok to fake oneself through life as long as you aren’t caught?
In denial about themselves because they know what they are doing is socially unacceptable or perhaps there is some type of personality defect which runs deep into their core?
 
You can check out this video from MSNBC of why people lie and make your own assumptions:
