George is a liar. He knows how to cover things up and is a master at cheating.
He is also unapologetically opinionated, intentionally modeling an intellectual transparency, while never concealing his true feelings on an issue.
His lies grow out of the desire for profit, revenge, glory, fame, or fortune.
It might simply be to create the illusion of being important.
Whatever the reason for lying, his end product is calculated gain.
George is becoming a greedy man, lacking emotional security, whilst favoring economic superiority.
Like a drug addict, George must have a shot in the arm. He simply must lie.
