Dealing with Deceptions ☼

There are many deceptions to deal with on several levels. They are not equally bad and dangerous. Measuring well tends to help against being mistaken, taken in, and further. There are ways and means to measure things, and there are degrees of accuracy. The optimal level of accuracy, proper measurement tools, adequate knowledge and skills may be combined.

It can be good to add "somehow" to many of the statements that follow – and try to make sure what truly helps before you leap into anything from what you read. There is a need for something to stand on too - is is wise to find that before you start building. Thus, what you get below is sketchy or suggestive. If you make out of the explanations, you could hammer out neat training programs suited to more than one person. It is not so very hard, but to follow through may take time, up to a lifetime. It remains with you to explore the options of up to individual tailorings measuredly, maturely.

Books at the bottom of the page may add meat to the bones in some of the fields that are rife with deceptions: marriage, politics, and more.

1. Seek to profit by some thoroughly clean things without catering far too much to mere facades and embracing pretences. All of that is help to keep oneself clean

Deceivers may put overdue stress on facades. Beware of holy facades too. Stop and halt a while to get a good fortune and detect a great pretender.

Idealistic deals deserve to get brushed and cleaned.

A good memory and getting skilled in sifting can help many.

If you have no good choices by adhering to old patterns, it may pay to break at least some of them – going carefully then and not acting by whim.

Idealistic deals do not embrace pretence.

Be prepared somehow that setbacks may occur.

Great prudence seeks to brush off pretenders.

Remain attuned to things of worth that have not become worn out.

2. Women may embrace women for empty acclaim or with prudence, as the case may be. Some feign to be in close relationships for hollow acclaim too – it may all be part of some rotten schemes, and serves to corrupt innocent young guys

Remain as classy as you can. Learn to inspect well in first-hand encounters. Little genuineness may kill you sooner than what had to be – that is due to how the id work. So try to savour things and other beings too.

It helps to detect it when woman goes against nature and to what degree. Certain sorts of outfit can really embrace women. Yet dishonest embraces don't count very much. Now, a close relationship is something to enjoy.

A detective may not embrace pretences for acclaim.

Great prudence manifests as staunch business.

It should help to detect the dishonest and hypocritical.

Deception is not without rot, and makes some people rotten, corrupt.

Remain attuned to: Who can move ahead confidently, may all the same advance cautiously. The clever may remain through prudence alone.

3. A reclusive advances toward or into feebleness of old age if he is not all too rotten to last that long, and is not helped by ignoring what truly matters in a life

A reclusive with much ado, has he embraced enough women? you should ask.

Consider how costly time gets, and advance the clever business

You may assure yourself of opportunities for success while being conscious of possible dangers.

To advance fairly well in life, seize and use the opportunities given.

Outfit is at least potentially professional

Invented, demonstrative displays yield up to papal authority to some. ✪ 

Confidence is good, and so is some decent armour.

It helps to check beneath surfaces if you are up to it.

It may be no mistake to strip away something rotten, wholly or in part, after due consideration.

Facades and the soap industry influence too many to ignore what matters, and how best to spend one's remaining life on earth.

Good outfit and quality gear suit the clever one.

It helps to be good at preparations toward running one's own affairs well, and it is possibly best to proceed cautiously so as to remain.


While seeking to profit righteously, also bulwarking against many deceivers and deceptions, hope that innocence and inward purity remains.

Brytting, Tomas, Richard Minogue and Veronica Morino. The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption. Farnham, Surrey: Gower, 2011. ⍽▢⍽ Most fraud literature focuses on the individual perpetrator. This book looks at how organisations as a whole and the people within it behave when fraud and corruption occur. A clear aim is to strengthen the corporate culture and make workers in it more resistant and resilient through such as an interpretation of a so-called triangle of need, opportunity and rationalisation, with interaction between fraudsters, victims and bystanders. Conditions that give rise to fraud and corruption are explored. Fundamentally a practical guide, this book also goes into ethics, organisational and work psychology and sociology, and criminology.
