What insincerity looks like

Insincerity, even though it may be delivered with passionate talk, that hides what you are really thinking is like a fine glaze of unrefined silver on a cheap clay pot.

A mendacious person is one who tells lies habitually and intentionally. Don’t get stuck at the water cooler or bus stop next to someone you consider mendacious!People may tell “white lies” if they forgot your birthday or really don’t like your new haircut, but if you catch someone intentionally manipulating you with a falsehood, that person is just plain mendacious. So think of the most deceptive, insincere, perfidious, duplicitous, false person you’ve ever met, and then add the word mendacious to that list.
