Some people consider it their moral imperative to tell people the unadulterated truth. Over-honesty, however, is as much (or more) a sickness as the sickness suffered by the pathological liar – although the liar may have more career upside potential. Being an “honest” person does not mean imposing a blunt truth, but rather conforming to the general conversational characteristics that embody conversational etiquette.
