Bloodgod and Rebel summed up my thoughts.

And yes, the shows creators have even gone so far as to explicitly attribute one of his major flaws as "wants to get caught." It's why he told Hank that Heisenberg might still be out there, after Gale Boetticher died. He caused a gigantic mess because he has a dark desire to be caught.


I attributed that more to him being so utterly and ridiculously proud that he couldn't stand to see him take credit for his work, even in death.

Yeah maybe deep down he wants to be recognized for all the work he's done and all the money he has made, but he doesn't actually want to be caught. In the scene you're talking about, he simply can't stand the thought of Hank giving Gale the credit and thinking he's Heisenberg.

Talk about your unmarked spoilers.

Also he told his therapist the truth; not sure what that has to do with his ability to lie.

Added spoiler tag, I'm usually good about doing that, forgot.

But no he didn't tell him the truth.

SPOILERS


Tuco kidnapped Walt and Jesse and took them to the desert. Walt didn't run away.


Oh true, but he told the truth about it not being a fugue state.

Yeah, part truth, part lie type of deal.

He pretty much sums it up perfectly when he is talking to Jesse about his past experience with Gray Matter, and how he sold out for 5000 dollars

@Jacket-

You don't seem to understand what I'm saying. He obviously does everything in his power to avoid detection. But it is a desire of his, deep down, a flaw- one that makes him want to end his criminality, and get caught.

He wants to be discovered, but will do everything he can to stop just that.
