    According to some psychologists, Compulsive liars tell the stories they think want to be heard, while pathological liars continue to lie when they know you know theyโ€™re lying. So, yes, they know they are lying but they can not stop doing it.

  • They know. Some people are very delusional and can't be wrong. But in my opinion, not every pathological liar is delusional and not every delusional person is a pathological liar.

  • Had a pathological liar as a roommate while I was in psychiatric therapy. And as many people here said they don't know they do. I mean maybe they know that they are lying but they can't do anything about it they just know they are lying because they have that condition.

  • I've had one as a room mate, I don't think he did while telling lies but then when confronted you could tell he understood even though he wo uls adimately defend his points.

  • On some level, of course. But if you're that used to lying, it's not that difficult to start falling into the trap of believing what you say.

  • They are story telling. Its not tolerable when they are trying to cover a lie because their response is so fucking stupid. But, as part of conversation they are funny. Master story tellers

  • As an ex-pathological liar- it just happens. They don't really think, the words just kind of form. And it's too late, because it'd be weird to go back and be like, "wait no I didn't live in Portland as a kid".

  • No, I don't think so. Because lying is normal to them and when you're doing something that is normal to you, you see nothing wrong with it.
