This way he will not waste his time and not making a bad impression on other people as well. The most selfish person will lie often about themselves doing stuff just to benefit them instead of others. Even though he knows certain things are wrong, but because of his selfishness, he chooses to trust the lies. The purpose of lies is maintaining social connections, protecting loved one’s feeling and being plain selfish. Sometimes a person does not want to hurt
As a society I don’t think that some people don’t intend to lie to hurt someone intentionally all the time but they lie to make them feel better some times. Is this always the case, I don’t think so, I just think that as a whole society has almost condoned lying in some aspect, little white lies. As it was quoted in the book by Nietzche “There is only one world, and that is false, cruel, contradictory, misleading, senseless. We need lies to vanquish this reality, this “truth”, we need lies in order to live. That lying is a necessity of life itself a
Bullshit is a double-deceit towards a person, because you are hiding the fact that you do not know the information about a topic, and you are spouting out information which you are not 100% sure of, and claiming as if you know enough to hold a conversation. Frankfurt’s statement holds water, because it is a documented argument that elegantly depicts the fight between lies or bullshit being more problematic. I agree with Frankfurt, because I myself am guilty of bullshitting my way through a few essays I have written in the past. I believe bullshit is worse than lying because you don’t think as much about the topic you are speaking about. When you lie about something, you put a lot of thought into it and decide yourself whether the truth or a lie is better for you.
All of this gives me the idea that she is hiding something because the passage from page three shows how she saw Nancy bleeding out with Grace Kerchiet than she doesn’t tell Dr. Jordan this; she tells him something completely different. I would thing if you’re innocent you would just tell Dr. Jordan everything and not try to twist everything alike Grace does the whole story. On page 398 and those few pages when she is under hypnosis; I also holds strong to prove that she is guilty. I think on this passage when she tells Dr. Jordan that she was taken over by Mary Whitney, her friend’s spirit. I think this is just something she is trying to do to make them think so if she is guilty she can plead insanity if she would need to.
To me the main reason why luv is so misunderstood is because the word TRUTH doesn't play its part. It could be that u are not being TRUE to urself about the relationship. Or it could be that they are not telling u the TRUTH about how they really feel. Wuteva the situation is, people need to understand that when the Truth is told, the relationship will be exactly what u want it to be. Many times, people get scared of the truth and try to hide from it.
Another skill is Honesty. Being honest no matter the situation helps in building one’s character. Telling the truth helps to build a person’s character and image with respect to family, friends and workmates. Telling a lie compromises one’s integrity because lies have a negative impact on the character. When one tells a lie no matter how insignificant it is, they lose their integrity because it becomes harder for people to trust them.
Being honest about ones problem can help with another person misery. Teens and adult tend to feel embarrassed about any medical condition and for that they lean towards lying about how they feel but not Nancy Mair. Nancy Mair, author of “On Being a Cripple,” talked about her experience with having MS and her true feelings about her disabilty. In her essay she points out the pros and cons of the problems that she goes through and how the disease can change some people actions in their everyday life. Mairs even goes as far to say that, “Because I hate being crippled, I sometimes hate myself for being a cripple.
We lie to people we think would misuse the truth in unfair or dangerous ways. Keeping the truth secret or deceiving people is only effective when those people believe we are providing them with the truth. Lies only work if we lie infrequently enough, to be believed and relied on when we do lie. Honesty is about keeping promises to tell the truth. Accepting our promise to tell the truth puts someone is a relationship with us.
After reading the article, named “The Truth about Lying” by Judith Viorst, I was wondering whether these lie is a protective lie or a trust-keeping lie. I tell this kind of lie not to protect myself because I know she won’t scold me or give me any punishment for being late. I tell these lie to keep my mother away from worrying about me. Again, my mother trusts me a lot. She believes that I can never lie to her, I can never do anything wrong behind her back.
Do you think the people around you reflect themselves to be who they expose themselves to be as a person? Hidden behind a mask, it is exactly what you think it means, someone pretending to be someone or something you’re not. If a individual says that they don’t cuss and then later on you find out that individual uses profanity, just hides the fact that they use bad language just not around people, which results to them wearing a mask or it simply could be out of respect. People often do things that question who they really are. What are they hiding ?
