I'm not sure if I have NPD (but i might). I lie to get approval and acceptance (most of the time). For example, if there's someone i want to like me, I will lie and say I like the same things they do, have similar opinions etc. Honestly it isn't even exactly lying, because i feel in theory i could like these things. I don't have a clear formed personality or identity, therefore i can mold it to my environment. It's not a lie at the time, but then if I'm in a new environment and have a different personality, it would look like I lied. But really i didn't it's just that my truth changes depending on where i am, and who i am with. I also lie (but rarely) when I feel that someone is getting too close. It pushes them away and creates distance from them. Hope that helps!
Yes they cheat big time but you better not or you are a ho! Trying and lying to fit in makes you a poser or fake. Is the blame game used to cover lies or are they projection?

To make oneself seem more important or attractive to get the recognition from others of your superiority. And also to negate the actual effects of your actions so that others look stupid for feeling the way they do.
Do you have npd? This has been done to me before and it seemed out of attention

About very small small things not to hurt others
It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
