I will avoid making specific comments related to the OP as per your request. Cryptic questions as follows:

While growing up...

Was there alcohol or substance abuse in this person's family?

Was blaming or scapegoating feature of this person's family?

Was this person the scapegoat?

Was domestic abuse or violence present in this person's family?


If those questions feel too personal, feel free to decline to answer them. If you do answer them I will tell you what I think I see going on if you want me to. If you mainly wanted to vent...I just want you to know you were heard. <3

If that's how he wants to play, always assume he's joking no matter what he says.

These are good questions, iwmp
Hugh Nibley claimed he bumped into Adolf Hitler, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Gertrude Stein, and the Grand Duke Vladimir Romanoff. Dishonesty is baked into Mormonism.

When you feel like making a post like this and then change your mind (we've all been there), just delete your content and in it's place, ask others to remove their quotes. Most here will meet that request and those who don't will likely end up wishing they did. ;)

Thanks. I'm just trying to sort through what I think I'm seeing in the descriptions.

Yes, massively
Probably
Doubt it, maybe ignored and shut out
Not sure (his mum told me she is like that when I expressed his behaviour and said he gets it from her)
