Why do you lie?
Posted 9/27/13
I often lie by omission to my students--because of child protection policies in Australia.

If they ask me, "Are you gay" or "Do you have a boyfriend?", I'm not allowed to answer those types of questions, it's not appropriate for a teacher to talk about love/sexuality to his students.
So I just ignore them and say, "Do your work"... that is my cop out lol.

If they ask something like, "What country are you from?", then I can answer those types of personal questions. Just not something sex/romance related.

Worst question they've ever asked me was, "Are you a virgin?". I don't know why they ask me these stupid questions... or why they want to know about my life stories.

I'm not one of those teachers who talk about my own lifestories, I just focus on talking about science, but I think these students just want to skip studying and so they just ask me irrelevant questions in class.

Well, as a rule I don't lie. I don't really do anything that I'm ashamed of, so why would I lie about anything? I really hate to lie (even little white lies), so in general I don't. Even if it means something bad happening to me.

There is however, one situation where I frequently pseudo-lie. That is, when someone asks me how I am (99% of the time, I'm terrible). I generally say I'm fine, or not too bad, or average. In the case of the first two, that's usually not the case, depending on how you interpret them. I basically use the third to avoid lying, as I can say that I am my own average, and it doesn't necessarily indicate that it's bad. They could also take it to mean that I'm just in a middle state. Neither happy nor sad. I do this because it would be quickly annoying if I answered completely honestly to that ever so frequent question, and every greeting turned into me moaning about stuff.

The FBI.


I prefer half-truths, lies of omission, or wild unbelievable lies. Anything to amuse myself, really.

Usually to not hurt someone or make the person worry. I never lie to my own benefit etc.

I have a hard time dealing with confrontations and because of this I may occasionally lie to avoid hurting someone's feelings or to diffuse a situation. When things calm down I make sure to explain the truth of the matter. This gives me enough time to carefully plan out my words so I don't upset the person/people involved.

I don't like lying, though. Perhaps after I build up some confidence I can avoid these sort of scenarios.
