Taken from 'The Big Bang Theory', this syndrome makes an individual make up fictional stories of living hard life in third world countries, in order to garner sympathy and attention.
Howard Wolowitz: Do I get an honorable mention for designing the telescope camera mounting bracket you used?

Rajnesh Koothrappali: Sorry; it's not part of my heart-warming and personal narrative, in which a humble boy from New Delhi overcame poverty and prejudice and journeyed to America to reach for the stars.

Howard Wolowitz: Poverty? Your father's a gynecologist. He drives a Bentley.

Rajnesh Koothrappali: It's a lease!
