Dissociative Identity Disorder Mistaken for Pathological Lying
Here's an interesting Q&A at iVillage.com about pathological lying. The article points out that people with dissociative identity disorder are often mistaken for pathological liars:
Sometimes an individual with dissociative identity disorder (DID), formerly known as multiple personality disorder, will deny doing things for which they have amnesia (don't remember). In such situations, the person may have no memory of doing X and swear up and down that it didn't happen. But anyone who actually saw the DID individual engaging in the disputed behavior will believe he or she is just lying.
