Most people tell white lies to protect another person’s feelings. After all, you don’t want to tell your friend Laura that another friend said that she has a big honker of a nose. Maybe you just don’t mention it or tell Laura that people think her nose is fine, really it is the kind thing to do.
It can be kind of ironic if your parents turn around and accuse you of lying to them. After all, they were the ones to tell you whopper lies like Santa Claus and the Easter bunny exist.
There are people who lie habitually for no reason without anything to gain from lying. These folks change their stories constantly and are sneaky and lack empathy. If you only tell white lies to protect friends, you would not be included in this category.
