One of the most terrible things you can do if you’re a serial liar is to lie to the wrong person.
And while you might be getting your way by lying to others, if you try this method to a person who overthinks, you might be sorry in the end.
This may not be common knowledge but overthinkers can be the biggest threat to liars. And this is due to the fact that people who tend to overthink will carefully analyze everything a liar says. They will break things down until everything becomes crystal clear.
If they feel something is not quite right, they will take some time to think about everything the potential liar has said in detail.
People who overthink do not forget anything and while you might not be able to see what they’re up to within, they are slowly picking apart your lies bit by bit, until they finally dig up the truth.
It doesn’t matter what tricks you may want to try, in the end, all your efforts to manipulate the overthinker will be in vain. Because, instead of taking things at face value, they deconstruct and examine every single one of your sentences until they get to the bottom of it all.
And while the overthinker doesn’t go digging deep just to find a lie, they are naturally good at picking them up.
They see a fake person coming from miles and can sense if they are ill-intentioned. Overthinkers have a lot more common sense than they’re getting credit for.
Furthermore, you can be certain of one thing; they don’t kiss ass and will always call out a person on their nonsense. And while you might think a fake mask may protect you, in the end, you’ll find yourself more exposed than ever before.
Needless to say, the best thing to do is always be honest, especially with those people.
Because whatever you do, you will be found out in the end. And it might take some time, and you’ll think you’ve slipped past their defenses, but eventually, they will catch on. And you can be sure of that.
If you are an overthinker yourself you surely know that this is all true.
You are a special type of person who does whatever it takes to get to the bottom of things whether you want to invest yourself in setting out on that journey or not. Otherwise, you can’t live with yourself. This kind of thing is natural and it’s as much of a blessing as it is a curse.
But one thing is for sure, overthinkers are not people anyone should mess with.
