Daily Con is a spin-off blog (from The Top Two Inches) that demonstrates some of the many ways in which people can lie, manipulate, deceive, and avoid accountability. It shows the worst in human nature, and many of the examples are quite humorous in a "gallows humor" kind of way. Everyone who's provided therapy, especially with clients such as sex offenders, antisocial individuals, etc., will recognize these examples in statements that have been made to them by clients.
There are benefits, however, to reading these examples (beyond the shaking-one's-head humor). First, periodically reminding oneself that client's who are attempting to avoid accountability will say almost anything is a good way to avoid being taken in. In addition, it is often an effective therapeutic technique to demonstrate the examples of others to clients who aren't completely ready to admit their own lack of accountability. By using obvious examples that are widely known (due the celebrity status of the speaker of the lie/manipulation, for example), one can ease the tension that accompanies the initial defensiveness to this concept. One of my favorites is the politician's standard response to allegations of wrong-doing: "I'm shocked by these charges!" Well, you may be shocked by the charges, but that doesn't say anything about whether you're guilty of said charges, does it? "I find these allegations troubling" is another one of my faves. In any event, one can always fall back on the numerous statements made by one O.J. Simpson to illustrate virtually any point regarding lying and deception. Daily Con seems to be another resource for finding examples of people attempting to manipulate, deceive, and obscure.
