In which circumstances do people tell white lies?
It sounds kind of funny, but I think that people usually only tell white lies to be polite. For example, you might not like your friend’s outfit, but you might tell a white lie and say that you do because you don’t want to hurt their feelings. After all, you attract more flies with honey than with vinegar. Besides, some people tell white lies to their family to keep them from being worried. I remember that when my parents called me to see how I was doing, I always told them I was good even though sometimes I was not.
Is telling small lies harmful? Is telling small lies a big deal?
I like to think that I’m an honest person, but I suppose that telling small lies isn’t that bad in the right situation. Sometimes you don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings or step on their toes, so you try to lie your way around it. If it’s just to be polite I don’t think it’s a big deal, but telling small lies can add up to bigger problems. As we all know, to hide a lie, a thousand lies are needed. So it’s best to be honest whenever you can.
Do you think is it okay to lie? What is the harm of lying?
Well, I don’t think it’s okay to lie in all circumstances. Sometimes it happens, but you should try to avoid it. The harm of lying is that it can lead to people’s feelings getting hurt if they find out you weren’t telling the truth. And telling lies not only hurts people, but also causes them to lose trust in you. Once people know you are a liar, they can hardly believe you anymore.
Which modern techniques can help police solve a crime case?
Nowadays, technology is worlds away from what it used to be. When it comes to solving crimes, there’s all kinds of cool gadgets and gizmos that can help the police. For example, examining DNA from a crime scene can usually help officers track down the criminal. Another cool modern technique is having surveillance in public places. If a robbery takes place, the store usually has security footage that shows whoever is responsible for the crime.
Do you think it’s important to teach children to be honest?
Yes, it’s definitely important to teach children to be honest. Even though there are some situations where they’ll want to lie, they should learn that honesty is the best policy. If they don’t learn that, they might think it’s okay to tell lies just to get what they want. That’s definitely a bad behavior that can negatively affect their relationships in the future. It’s up to parents to teach them right from wrong and make sure they know not to lie.
Some people say that liars are those who have a good memory; what do you think?
Well, I’ve never actually heard that expression before. But I guess it makes sense. If you lie a lot, you’d have to have a good memory to stay on your toes and not get caught. I have watched several detective dramas, and liars in the dramas have to remember all the details they lied about or they will be easily found out. So maybe there’s some truth behind it. Personally, I try not to lie, so I don’t have a lot of experience on the subject.
