    On a scale of 1-10, how honest would you say you are when it comes to situations?

    How about little things like your friend's new haircut, or major things such as your feelings towards someone?

    Don't you think you owe it to the other person out of respect to be honest with them about your feelings for example?

    I guess I'm always scared of creeping them out or making things awkward/losing a friend. (Unless of course it was SUPER obvious the feeling is mutual).

    Oh in that case I completely understand, I wouldn't say that's being dishonest, just super shy and reasonable aha. Saying you feel a certain way when you know you don't for example is what's wrong.

    Depends on the situation. I'm usually brutally honest in debates/opinions etc, (so, 10) but less so on people asking how they look, and so on... Maybe a 6.

    4 with strangers - I'm blunt and I'll tell them what I think if they inquire too hard. However I'll mostly intentionally change my diction, body language and so on to make them enjoy my presence more than they otherwise would and I will make sure I don't say things which could make them lose trust in me, respect or attractiveness.

    9 with friends - I'm very very honest, much to my loss at times.

    Yeah same here, but when it comes to someone's appearance I like to be very honest if they ask for my opinion. Like it makes me sad when I see a girl with awful eyebrows and none of her friends have the decency to tell her to fix them...

    I agree with your last point. Sometimes I feel like being too honest in certain situations is like a curse lol

    I am aware that I am the crappiest liar out there so I just stick with the truth :rofl:
    Feelings wise I deviate from telling the truth, but I don't lie

    I'm a rubbish liar too! If I lie to my fiancé (usually just "I'm fine" or "yes I did orgasm"...jk) he knows straight away. It makes it harder to bull**** in interviews, that's for sure lol

    3. I'm only honest when I think it's appropriate or when I think a person can handle it. Not many people can.
