To lie means to cheat and it is becoming more and more frequent during our daily life. However, there are different kinds of liars since not all liars tell lies for the same reason. The first kind of liars are those who try to tell a lie in order to protect others; the second kind of liars are those who are habitually lying without any purpose; the last kind of liars are who deceive others only for their own sake by hurting other people.

  White lies are told by the first kind of liars in order to protect the people they care for. They do not always tell lies only on particular occasions. One suitable example here is when a doctor tells a patient’s relatives that the patient may die soon, those relatives sometimes choose to tell a white lie to ensure the patient can lead a happy life without worrying for the rest of his life. Those liars think they are kind and the lies are necessary when facing this special situation. However, they consider the problem only from their own viewpoint but not from the patient’s which may also have an unpredictable consequence.

  The second kind of liars is worse than the first kind because they cheat people everywhere every time for no reason. These liars are just accustomed to lying when they face some unsatisfactory situation. They are called “pathological liars”. In their daily life, lying is easy to tell especially when they are not satisfied with themselves so that they can show people a perfect but an unreal life of themselves. In short, those liars are not harmful since they always tell lies for no reason and are used to living like that.

  The last kind of liars focus on gaining benefit from others by telling a lie which means it is the most harmful liars among those three kinds of liars. There are many cases in society that some people cheat others in order to get money and what they want which hurts victim’s feelings and money. In fact, those liars easily let people fall for it and they are without any guilty....
