When Liars Are Lying They Choose Words
We have seen that liars hold the world in contempt. This works its way out in the interview/investigative process (including interrogation) when the liar is challenged.
The liar does not like being called a liar.
This is more than just a presence to be noted; it is in the initial, pre-supposed language.
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky" has been shown to be a truthful statement, based upon statement analysis.
Everyone has a personal, subjective internal dictionary and to Mr. Clinton, "sexual relations" meant "intercourse."
Now, he obviously knew that this was deceptive, while being technically truthful, as he later said, in his semi-mea culpa.
But why did he do it?
If he knew it was deceptive, why did he even bother to make the statement?
This goes to the core of a liar:
holding others (the world, oftentimes) in contempt, the liar fancies himself better than others, and to actually be seen or exposed as a liar, undermines the very core of his nature. Liars will choose words in which, even when caught, can later defend against the charge of, "you are a liar!"
We saw this in the case of murdered 13 year old Hailey Dunn.
Billie Jean Dunn pathologically lied about what happened to Hailey, and she did so in abundance. The more she spoke, the more we knew, while her partner in crime, Shawn Adkins, said little.
Billie Jean led the charge, and even talked the dim-witted Adkins into taking a polygraph. ("MHMR" Billie called him, indicating that he had "Mental Health Mental Retardation"; not doing a good job identifying the initials as she attempted to sound like a professional while belying her lack of education). She convinced him that they could beat it by using drugs, and when caught, she was forced into taking it, only to fail it.
When on the Nancy Grace Show, she was caught buying drugs, she said, "It was something I was prescribed" as if once prescribed a pain killer from a doctor, going out to the back alley to buy pain killers on the street from a drug dealer is perfectly acceptable.
Nothing anyone would say to Billie Dunn could provoke her until she heard "liar" and threatened to sue.
Now back to President Clinton.
He knew he was going to lie, yet he did it in a way in which, if caught, he could say "technically, it was truthful" even though he would be seen as deceptive.
He was cheating on his wife, using the Oval Office for his affairs, had a history of disrespectful behavior towards women, yet...
he didn't want to lie outright?
Why is this important enough to write an entire article about?
It is because, at the core, the liar, that is, the person who, when all is on the line, will chose to fabricate reality, still, even while deceiving, will not tell a direct lie, in order to avoid being called...
Clinton had been called a rapist, had been accused of selling military technology to the Chinese in exchange for campaign money, and left a trail of ruthless deceit from Arkansas to Washington, and barely blinked, yet cared enough to not only make this deceptive, but technically truthful statement, but did so on National television and used the finger wagging to gain emphasis (something body language analysts love to pounce upon).
He could not bear being called a "liar" even though there had been a stained blue dress in evidence, he still felt the need to go on television, as President of the United States, and point his finger into the face of the nation!
Liars hold the rest of us in contempt. They have been doing it their entire lives and if you want to provoke one, label "liar" upon the forehead and watch the reaction. It is one of the best interrogation tools when employed properly, and can cause the pride to go rushing to the top, and with just enough rope, cause the liar to hang himself, and in this case, so publicly that the entire nation saw it.
The liar chooses is words carefully, allowing himself the "out" of not being called a "liar." Being called and labeled a "liar" utterly exposes the persona, something that the liar has hidden since childhood.
Call him anything but a liar.
