          Dr. Phil On Why People Lie


          February 5, 2019

          “There’s a lot of research about why people lie,” says Dr. Phil. Listing the top reasons that people lie, he says “Number one is to take what’s not rightfully theirs.”

          Other reasons people are untruthful, he says, are to escape accountability, to avoid punishment, to gain an advantage in order to exploit others, “or to create a fantasy, a false self-esteem to escape their mundane life.”
