7 Types Of Lies People Tell




It might be surprising but definitely interesting to know that lies actually have classifications and not all lies are the same; there are indeed different kinds of lies. Jumia Travel and Jumia Mobile Week share 7 different kinds of lies people tell.

White Lies

This is often believed as the least serious kind of lie. These type of lies are told to avoid burdening an individual with the weight of the truth. An example is showing appreciation for an undesirable gift. These lies are indeed quite harmless but the problem is over time the white liar loses credibility and is dismissed as an insincere person.

The Bold-Faced Lie

These lies are common with children, but when an adult does it, it’s just plain annoying. In a bold-faced lie, the liar says something everyone knows is false but stands by it as the truth (regardless of how obvious the lie is). People tend to be resentful of bold-faced lies because of how belittling of time and intelligence it is.

Exaggerated Lies

Here the truth is usually mixed with untruth to make the liar look impressive to others. The funny part is the exaggerator will sometimes weave truth and lies in a way that confuses even themselves. Unfortunately, at some point the exaggerator begins to believe these lies that no one else might even believe. It’s truly tragic.

Deceptive Lies

This might seem like tautology but it isn’t. A deceptive lie is one where the deceiver creates a false impression with truth, either by not telling all the facts or recounting the facts in a misleading way. It’s quite impressive actually and unfortunately people tend to believe these lies. These lies are subtle, yet powerful, hurtful and even deadly.

Compulsive Lies

These lies are either caused by low self-esteem or the need for attention. Compulsive liars tell lies even when telling the truth will be easier and better; what matters most to them is the attention the lies will give them. It’s quite ridiculous and at the same time extremely tragic. Compulsive liars typically find it difficult to stop lying as it is more of an addiction for them.

Lies of Fabrication

This involves presenting something you are not sure of, as the truth. Gossip blogs are fond of this. These lies are very hurtful and damaging, they typically lead to rumours that put others in danger or damage the reputation of others. Gossips and rumour mongers are the people typically associated with these lies.

Duplicitous Lies

These lies are typical of people who break spoken promises and commitments. Duplicitous liars typically hide their true feelings and intentions behind false actions and words. These liars cause great damage to others. Unfortunately, they are quite difficult to identify until they’ve disappointed. One way to protect yourself is to try to speak to people who have previously known the person to know if the person is generally associated with broken promises and commitments, so you can be careful.

  • When men ejaculate, a little cortisol gets released, which is the stress hormone. This boosts their immune system.
  • Masturbation can release stress and tension from the body by flooding the system with endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body and can lead to sound sleep.
  • With age men naturally lose muscle tone even in the penis. Masturbation or regular sex in a way exercises the pelvic floor muscles and prevent erectile dysfunction and incontinence.

Mom That Has 10 Sons Finally Gives Birth To A Girl



A lady identified as Alexis Brett who hails from England has finally given birth to a daughter after having 10 sons.

When Alexis and her husband were pregnant with their 11th child, she was expecting to hear that she was having another son. She was completely in shock when she heard she was finally having a girl.

Now that their daughter is here, they are absolutely loving it. At her arrival, her 10 other sons were ages 2-17.

Alexis thought her 10th son was her last; however, she knows for sure her daughter, Cameron, is definitely her last child.

They absolutely love their nontraditional family. While others think it is huge and crazy, they enjoy raising a large family.

Alexis shared, “I’m an only child myself and I’d never planned to have a large family, but now that I do, I love it. I always joked I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl anyway but that’s all changed now, of course, and I have to admit that we’re having a lot of fun buying pink things for the first time.”

Alexis and her husband David have been married since 1998. They live in Dingwall, Ross-shire in a five-bedroom house with the entire family.

They have to go to the grocery store three times a week to have enough food to feed their family! In a given week, they would go through 16 loaves of bread, 100 packets of chips, and 50 pints of milk.

Alexis and David never meant to have a big family; however, they have absolutely no regrets. They love their somewhat crazy life just the way it is. They especially love having a little pink in a house filled with boys as well.

Cameron sure is one lucky little girl to have 10 older brothers to protect her as she grows up!

For some, one child is enough, but for this mom, she definitely enjoys the wait after 10 sons to finally get a beautiful daughter.
