Nevertheless, when it comes to telling lies, the avoidance of truth (whether that be in the short-term of the long-term) always seems to be the cause.

Why do children lie? A lie is a defensive survival tool. The other side of the coin, we are suppose to use our large brains for discernment.
Children lie because they fear truth as well.
I once or maybe twice told a lie to get to the truth of the matter .I have told other lies for such reason as you have mentioned but creating a lie to expose a dirty rat is a very valuable tool .
I believe the chief reason behind lying has to do with fear of truth;
Its a test where every spirit gets tested everyday by a evil djinn, on whether they are going to withhold the truth from those around them.
The more personas you have, the more disingenuous.
