Types of Lies Men Tell

Jasbina Ahluwalia discusses with Dan Crum, author of Is He Lying to You?

You explain in your book that there are two different types of lies that men tell. One type is deletion and the other is fallacy. Explain the two types to our listeners.

Types of Lies Men Tell: Deletion

Deletion is when you leave something out. Let’s say that I ask you what you did on Friday night. You tell me what you did but you really did five things and you tell me about four.

Have you lied? I would say yes. Most likely, that fifth thing that you deleted, or left out, has been done in a way to deceive the person, to lie to them. Usually, it’s because there is something you’re hiding. That’s why you didn’t want to talk about that fifth thing.


Types of Lies Men Tell: Fallacy

Fallacy is what it sounds like. Someone says a statement and it is true or false. A fallacy is when someone tells you something that is absolutely false. It is a lie when they give you the answer.


Jasbina Ahluwalia:

It’s an outright lie.


Dan Crum

Yes, absolutely.
