幫我翻譯一所文章!Why do we tell lies?

Everyone knows that lies hurt people.

So why do we continue to tell lies?

Psychologists say the number one reason why people lie is to avoid confrontation.

They think that if they tell the truth, it might start an argument.

To avoid that, they lie and tell people what they want to hear.

The problem is that the truth usually comes out sooner or later.

And then people will be even angrier than if they were lied to.

The number two reason people lie is to make themselves look good.

They might think they are not very special or interesting.

So they tell lies to other people and make themselves look smarter, braver or more exciting.

But the truth always comes out!

Besides, if you tell a lie many times, you might start believing it yourself!

If is always best to be honest about your strengths and weaknesses.

    Why do we tell lies?

    為什麼我們要說謊呢?

    Everyone knows that lies hurt people. So why do we continue to tell lies?

    每個人都知道說謊會傷害到其他人,但為什麼我們要說謊呢?

    Psychologists say the number one reason why people lie is to avoid confrontation.

    心理學家表示,第一個原因是因為人們要避免分爭。

    They think that if they tell the truth, it might start an argument

    人們覺得,如果說了實話,可能會引起爭執

    To avoid that, they lie and tell people what they want to hear.

    為了避免爭執,他們說了對方想要聽的謊言

    The problem is that the truth usually comes out sooner or later.

    但問題是,真相往往都會被知道,只是早晚的問題

    And then people will be even angrier than if they were lied to.

    等謊言拆穿後,對方會比一開始知道真相還要更生氣

    The number two reason people lie is to make themselves look good.

    第二個原因是因為要讓他們自己看起來更好

    They might think they are not very special or interesting.

    他們大概覺得自己不是特別的或是有趣的

    So they tell lies to other people and make themselves look smarter, braver or more exciting.

    所以,他們告訴其他人謊言,讓自己看起來更聰明、更勇敢或是更活躍的。

    But the truth always comes out!

    但是真相往往會被發現

    Besides, if you tell a lie many times, you might start believing it yourself!

    此外,如果你說了同一個謊很多次,你就會開始相信自己是說的是實話!

    If is always best to be honest about your strengths and weaknesses.

    關於你的長處跟弱點,最好的方式還是要說實話。

    我盡量把它翻的通順一點…

    但有些英文,我懂意思,但實在很難翻成中文(我國文不太好- -")

    若是沒有其他人回答,就請將就一點看我的回答吧.........Orz

    大家都知道說謊會傷害人

    那為什麼我們還要繼續說謊?

    心理學家說第一個原因是: 說謊可以避免對抗爭執

    他們認為說實話就會開始起爭執

    為了避免這樣的情形,他們說謊然後告訴別人他們想聽到的是什麼

    問題是事實很快或是之後就會發生

    然後人就會比被騙更生氣

    第2個原因是:人說謊是要讓他們看起來很好

    他們可能認為自己不特別不有趣

    所以他們對人說謊然後讓自己看起來比較聰明,勇敢或有趣

    但事實總會被發現

    此外,如果你說謊多次,你就會相信自己說的謊

    對自己的實力跟弱點最好要誠實

    每個人都知道說謊會傷害別人

    所以我們為什麼還要繼續說謊呢?

    人為什麼要說謊, 心理學家說第一種人將避免爭吵

    他們認為說如果說出了事實,將會有爭執

    為了避免這種事情發生,他們說謊都是說對方想聽的話

    但是問題總是接踵而來

    說謊的人就會因此而惱羞成怒

    第二種人是為了讓自己看起來是完美的而騙人

    他們覺得自己不夠風趣或特別

    所以他們說謊多半是為了讓人覺得他們很勇敢和聰明...等

    但是事實總是會被戳破

    所以如果你常常說謊的話,你必須開始相信自己並改變

    然後要誠實的看待自己的優缺點
