    Do harmless, accidental, irrelevant lies count as probity issues?

    finally a reply thanks.
    Ok, here's the situation:
    You are stopped and asked by a lecturer, while you were asking him a question, whether you had covered a chapter yet. It's after lecture and you are with a small group of friends. You weren't expecting to be stopped and this disturbed your thoughts on what to ask, and you reply yes when you havent done the chapter. It was under pressure to reply quickly in that short time. Your friends know this isn't a chapter you've done yet and the lecturer also maybe knows now as you looked confused with his answer. Is that a serious issue? Are medics never allowed to lie, even by mistake like that and where there's no gain?

    I don't see why they'd reprimand you for it, it doesn't affect any patients.

    It's in the nature of humans to act like that in pressurised situations so no, if anything it's a demonstration of some human nature. However, obviously if you can control yourself in pressurising situations, it could help in the position of being a medic.

    No. You didn't lie, you made a mistake. You're allowed to do that.
