From my basic observation, there appears to be three different types of liars. 
One type uses lying as a shield, to protect either themselves or someone else of the pain that may come with a certain discovery. Call these people type (B) liars. The common liar. I fall into this category. 

The type (A) liar uses the lie as a weapon, a means to inflict pain or to gain an advantage in a fight. 
In a conflict, winning is the priority. The means by which the battle is won is 'whatever it takes', so false accusation is permissible to the type (A) liar.  

Then there is a third category. The type (C) liars. Recreational or pathological liars. Lying will occur where no threat exists. Reality, it seems is just not interesting enough, so a new version gets fabricated. These Liars take lying to a whole new level in their comitment to edit and photoshop the reality they don't want to accept by taking on a role that is consistent with their preferred reality.  
They will purposely blur facts and misrepresent the truth to suit there fancy. Truth is preached and parroted, but dropped at the earliest convenience.
A Type C liar will also use Type A and type B lying if a conflict arises.  
To a liar there are two types of lies. 
- ones that aren't true
- ones they wish weren't true.

Powerful. I'll be sure to return to this essay to further ponder those challenges that hold us back from being honest.

Interesting.
There area also convenience liars who just agree with something someone says wheather it is true or not; this can be accidental or intentional.

Is there a reason you're recording these, if I may ask.

To answer your question,  it's not to convince the world of anything or because I think I'm an authority on the subject , I write these things to help myself process and define some of the things that I've experienced.

That's a valid observation.  I think what your pointing out goes far and deep within the territory of agreement in general.  How many things have we agreed with because it was easier than investigating the truth or standing up for what you know deep down inside.  It's really interesting you bring this up because I've been journaling a lot on the topic of why I accepted the religion that I grew up with.
there are a lot of factors that I explore.  I'm debating whether I should journal on DA about Christianity and ultimately my de conversion.
