Growing up as an Anglo child, you're supposed to intuit that your parents and teachers are constantly lying to you. You're supposed to mimic them and lie right back. Status is judged based on how elegantly you lie. If you have something honest to say you're supposed to bankshot it - tell a lie that's kind of transparent, so basically being tsundere.
American culture is basically Anglo culture.
Is this well known? Should I explain this in more detail?
Is this weird occult knowledge, or would I be explaining that the Sun rises in the morning?
