Podcast 031: Lies, White Lies and Lies of Omission – Why We Go There

core freedom podcast logoIn the interest of staying focused on ethics and integrity, here is a podcast about lies, white lies and lies of omission. Why do we lie?

Vanessa Van Edwards, a Behavioral Scientist, tells us that we are getting lied to 2-3 times during a 10 minute conversation.

Wow, just wow.

While most people know what flat-out lies are, sometimes we overlook the white lies or the lies of omission. Why do we lie? And what can we do about it?

Some people lie because they are scared. Others lie because they want to makes themselves look better than they feel. And still others lie because they don’t want to hurt those they love.

Some lies affect us greatly and tear the cloak of trust in an instant, never to be restored again. And other lies don’t affect us at all – at least so we think. Do all lies hurt us and destroy the trust we have in those we love?
