There appears to be no remission from the "telling of stories they think want to be heard"

Compulsive vs. Pathological Liars

Out-of-control lying is known as compulsive or pathological lying. Definitions are fluid, experts say.

Compulsive liars have a need to embellish and exaggerate, says Paul Ekman, PhD, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California in San Francisco and the author of Telling Lies, among other books. "They tell the stories they think want to be heard," he says. When you ask a compulsive liar for an opinion on an important issue, says Dr. Ekman, they’re likely to say something like this: "You know, you made a really wise choice in asking my opinion. Many people do. I've actually been asked by the governor of California to comment on this."

#3 *SIGH* These people seem to have a problem distinguishing between "feasibility studies" and "organizing to implement plans". One is a gedankenexperiment, German for "thought experiment" and the other is the Last stage before giving the troops the "Ready!Set!Go!" order.
...Or maybe they don't and are just fabulists stirring up crap for personal gain.
