i think it is "good" to be honest but not to be bruatally honest if it is going to hurt try to make it sound nicer.

as for what i do i have mad skillz at saying something that is not technically a lie but makes it sound like what i want it to, i can trick people like crazy in real life i can read facial expressions and tone of voice like no other! but i tend not to do that i really try to be a good person

It's good to be honest, but not so much that people get hurt by it and you lose a lot from doing it. Telling a lie isn't so bad, as long as you restrain from doing it all the time.

Being honest really depends on the outcome of the situation. Some people use lies to get themselves out of situations, but when it's all said and done, when you are honest, it builds trust between you and your friend or whomever. Even if the person is lying, Im not going to stoop that low, and do the same. I will be honest, and very blunt all the time. You have to show people that you can be trusted because thats where it all starts from. "The trust issue" Ive always try to look at it from that point of view, but alot of people now and days arent event honest with themselves so how can they be honest to others? Sometimes honesty can get you in trouble depending what the situation is, but it shows others that you can be trustworthy without lying to them in there face. You cant always trust everyone because there's to many back stabbers out there, and when they detect that from you, theyll use that as your weakness, and take advantage of you.

depends.

its very good to be honest because people will trust you and you can do more things because people think you deserve rewards for honesty.

but its bad too because you could never lie so if someone asks for an opinion on a matter,you might insult them.

so both.

Being honest is always the best way to go, even if the truth might hurt someone, there are no excuses for lying in my book.

Simple, either walk away and tell him its none of his business.
And if it comes down to it, beat the crap outta him out of self defense.
Simple as that. Or just don't say anything.

Scenario: You are back in the times of the holocaust. You are asked if you know any Jewish people. You know you do, but will you still tell the truth?

Another One: You saw your brother/sister cheating on her wife/husband. The wife/husband asks you if you saw your brother/sister cheating. What will you say?

Yet another one: You got in a fight at school, the officer there will give a ticket with a fine to the person who started it. They ask you who started it. What will you say when it was you?

Last One: Your friend asks you if she's prettier than the hawtest girl in school. Hm?

A simple lie can get you out of hot water fast. Sometimes a lie is the best excuse.
