Most of the time

People need to be protected from the truth, no matter how bad it is.

Never

Honesty is a virtue, but sometimes it's not the best course of action in certain situations.

Only for trivial things

Lying can be good fun, but it should never be done over something that needs to be the truth, or to those you care about.

All the time, in fact, I'm doing it right now.

Is this a paradox?

Research has shown that people lie 60% of the time.

Reece: So are those who chose rarely lying?

Are we considering "lying" and not telling the full truth to be the same or different? I was taught that not telling the full truth is lying but some disagree.

Discomfiting, I was taught the same thing, and I agree with you.

Discomfiting: Yeah, I guess.

Biased studies are very common, reece. Just saying. I don't trust studies like I trust my personal observations.
