Answer for question 4282.

Do you think of yourself as an honest person? Can you think of a time where you lied to someone, just to make them feel better? What did you say?
It's the old ethics argument again. Deontology Vs Teleology. Basically would you tell the truth to the nth degree, regardless of the consequences - or would you weigh up the situation and scatter untruths like little white butterflies.

I go with the Teleology/Consequentialism - but I do tend to tell people the brutal truth if there IS no other way of getting the message across.
