Tell the truth or lie
« on: May 05, 2019, 01:50:11 pm »
If someone asked you for your opinion, if you knew it would hurt their feelings, would you lie to them?    Sometimes this could be hard to answer. But sometimes the truth hurts.

I would tell them the truth.  I would be kind and gentle toward them as well.

It would depend on who the person is and my relationship to them.  A good friend or a relative I would be honest.  If I'm not close to the person or if I thought the person's feelings would be hurt, I might lie, it would depend on what it was they wanted my opinion.

I like to find something to say that is true, but not hurtful. For example, if someone asks you if their hair looks OK today, you could say " It's not your best look, but it's OK" or something like that that's not directly hurtful to say.

I would hate to do it, but if it was someone I was really close too and had a good relationship with I would be tempted to lie to stop from hurting their feelings. The only way I would absolutely tell the truth was if I could calibrate the situation and their feelings enough to feel like I wouldn't hurt them. And if I was truthful I would try to be as diplomatic and gentle as possible with them and explain that there are no hard feelings and that it is not personal.

I wouldn't lie. If someone wants your honest opinion, they don't want to hear your lies. And if they can't handle the truth, they shouldn't have asked.

For me, that depends on who I am talking to and what the situation is

It really depends, but tell the truth whenever possible.

I would only lie if telling the truth would cause irrepairable damage.

I don't know.  If you tell them the truth then they will not only get mad at you but go tell everybody you said "this" and not tell that they asked for your opinion. And then others get mad at you.

I am to the point that I would just say "I am not going to answer that".

That would still hurt someone's feelings.  I would just say it looks fine to me.

Mean is mean. so what is the levels of mean.  If you don't tell the truth about to you friend, they will be in a cycle of ify, only if you no care than don't.  :-\

I would just say that I donít have an opinion to share. I only feel that saying something negative would be okay if you feel annoyed by that person and donít want to have to suffer his or her torturing you.

It all depends on the situation, but I would tell the truth regardless because it is the right thing to do. Lies will only get you in more trouble or come back to bite you.
