Playing the lying game : detecting and dealing with lies and liars, from occasional fibbers to frequent fabricators by Gini Graham Scott( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The deceptions vital to Bernie Madoff's $50 billion Ponzi scheme made lying an art and garnered new heights of media attention for the practice. Fortunately, not all liars are so malevolently motivated. Yet the fact remains that nearly every adult alive is affected by lying nearly every day, if not by being lied to, then by being put in a position where they must decide whether a lie is justified." "Everyone lies, perhaps to protect the feelings of another, perhaps to secure a deal that will, in the end, benefit all parties. But where is the line between a "good" lie and a harmful prevarication - and how do we recognize and protect ourselves from the latter? In Playing the Lying Game: Detecting and Dealing with Lies and Liars, from Occasional Fibbers to Frequent Fabricators, author Gini Graham Scott shares psychological insights into lying that will help answer such questions - and many more." "Scott examines every facet of lying, including its history, cultural connections, and motivations. She identifies five types of lies and liars and explains how to detect each type, whether one is confronted with the occasional fibber or a sociopathic, compulsive liar. The book covers lies told in business and politics, lies among friends, and lies between dates, married couples, and family members, as well as the lies we tell ourselves. Finally, Scott offers a "lie-Q Test" that will help us see how savvy we are - or are not - in detecting fibs, mistruths, and downright deceptions."--Jacket
