Compulsive Lying - effect in the long-term? [...[quote=Rumplesmoothspin] GoldenCinderblock: If I'm bored, I'll go to a bar and pretend to be someone else and troll people. It's fun. Try it.

I would say the overall perception are the lines are “more blurred” as you stated. While the vast majority of people (both from my consulting class and those I met at welcome... 1 year 3 weeks
What is the missing variable in acceptance rate?My thoughts: 1) I definitely agree with self-selection rationale, which you brought in the beginning and BGP2587 elaborated upon a bit.
