This is a discussion on On a Scale 1 to 10, how honest are you? within the Education & Career Talk forums, part of the Topics of Interest category; ...9..........
I rather not explain, but let's just say I don't lie much, but I am living a huge lie at the moment. Other than "living a lie", I would say 7.
I would say 7. The people I know would probably say that I'm an 8 or a 9. It's 'cause I usually come clean with them or wear my "lying" face. I let them catch me when I find the lie irrelevant. I also lie to protect my loved ones and myself.
If your definition of lying is twisting the truth, then, I'm an 8. If your definition includes concealing the truth, then, I'm a 7.
Erhm, probably six to eight. I do tell the truth usually, and I'm actually very blunt about it, except sometimes when my mom asks me if I did my homework. Technically, I did do it the day before, so I did do my homework...but that counts as "manipulating" the truth, so. Yeah, six to eight.
only if it pays to be honest, otherwise I would remind myself I'm human and if I weren't desparate, I would tell the truth. I would give myself an 7.99.
In romantic relationships, I may honestly want to leave or walk out, but withhold this information for awhile.
If someone has hurt me badly, I may be planning a legal revenge, but will withhold this information.
When I'm dishonsest, I always feel guilty, unless I'm getting revenge.
9 - honestly!
nah, I don't tell lies, I enjoy telling the truth just for the shock factor sometimes..
In a truly awkward situation, I will still tell the truth, just as nicely as I can.
The only time i will lie is when telling the truth can get someone else into a lot of trouble, it's for them to tell the truth, not me to do it for them.
3. Maybe 4.
My first instinct is to lie. It's a problem.
"Yeah I'm almost done this project"(I've hardly started)
"Oh, just had a quiet night in"(Was out the entire time)
"I didn't really catch many fish, it wasn't too fun."(To make the person feel better)
I'm usually honest, but there are occasions when I lie because I succumbed to social protocol, or when I'm trying to protect someone's feelings. the latter usually backfires, so it's always better to tell the truth. I'm the worse liar in the world, so I prefer to tell the truth as often as possible.
