I lie about random stuff, unnecessarily - I'm not a compulsive liar (hehe, paradoxical) but I make up excuses and stories, elaborating, whenever I'm unable to tell the truth. Sometimes I make up a few and get confused, unable to decide which one's most plausible, and so end up telling the truth!
I read on the RHETI type site, and somewhere else also, that 4s seek truth IN THEMSELVES.. But I'm not sure how far that works.
I expect you're right about your wing's dislike of confrontation. Seems like you, having a w5, are pretty clever. ;)

> Hi, I'm new to the board... I was wondering if anyone else has a problem with being dishonest. I'm a 4w5 and have noticed this tendancy to lie, usually I'll lie to keep the peace... although it rarely works out that way. My mother is a 2w3, I'm not sure if this is "normal" for this type but she seems to lie almost constantly. So, is this lying from my strong five wings dislike of confrontation or something I picked up from my mother?
