Thought Questions: Day 18: Is it possible to lie without saying a word?

While reading Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself over the course of a year. I decided that I would start answering one of the questions each day for the next year. Not only will this give me a reason to blog every day for a year straight, it will get my creative juices flowing–and I think it will be fun! If you join in please leave me a comment so I can see your answers too. :)

Day 18: Is it possible to lie without saying a word?

Yes. Body language, lies of omission, etc.

    1. Sometimes I’m not sure what’s worse, lying outright or a lie of omission. Because at least an outright lie took some balls to invent it and say it. A lie of omission is even more cowardly, because you couldn’t bring yourself to say anything at all. So I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.

  1. Oh, this is such a cool concept for posting..and this is really thought provoking. I absolutely think you can lie without saying a word. Lies of omission can be just as damaging. (and I agree with you that they are more cowardly!) –Lisa

  2. Yep, I totally agree. And with your comment about which is worse, lying outright or lying by omission, I think the latter is worse. Then you can’t even call the liar on it. They just deny and say they didn’t lie at all… it was all in your interpretation. ><

  3. Hiding the truth or misleading someone by not telling the truth is a form of lying. People who think you have to say something under false pretense to be considered a lie are lying to themselves as well.
