Is it good to always tell the truth? Is the sincerity of people really valued? When do we speak of sincerity and when do we speak of sincerity? Speaking of “sincerely” evokes the fact of telling the truth without caution, without limits, without taking into account what the other feels or wants. Clearly, we could say that sincerity applied without intelligence can cause unnecessary injury.
It would be best to use the truth to help and sincerity to build, but never to destroy or bring down others . Let us keep in mind that the truth is a very powerful weapon, which must not be lacking in empathy and social intelligence.
On the other hand, it may be that when we resort to a sincerecide we are actually telling the truth, without lies, but when we do it without taking into account the effect it may have on the other or only to let off steam. , we are not doing the right thing and we are not using the truth as necessary. We only express objective realities that hurt, and that at inappropriate times.
Therefore, in order not to hurt, do you have to lie? The explanation is not so simple that telling the truth or lying, sometimes a truth will not help and will only make the situation worse. The best thing we can do is express what we want to say, but with sensitivity, finding the right time and context, or finding the best way to do it.
What happens in my brain when I lie?
A study published in Neuroscience magazine showed that when we lie, the amygdala, the area that works in our brain when we perform this action, decreases its activation as we lie. In fact, it means that she becomes desensitized to the repetition of such an action.
With this, we can make the following conclusion: by lying, we force our brain to relax and get used to not telling the truth. However, our function is not in lying, but in learning to select and transmit the truth. Our social relationships will not stand up if we do not put filters in our communication, regardless of whether or not the message we are sending captures reality.
As we have pointed out, sincerecide does not improve our skills, nor does it improve our self-esteem, nor does it help us improve our social relationships. What helps us, however, is sensitivity. Some truths should be conveyed with the delicacy with which a feather arises, others should be kept until the right time comes, others should never be shared as they are not of great interest. and with others it is necessary to achieve a gradual communication, so that the person has time to assimilate it.
Is it good to always tell the truth or is it sincerely?
Psychologist Claudia Castro carried out a cognitive study on lying and affirmed that during the day we must tell at least one or two lies, no matter how big or small; but we use them to transform reality in our favor.
We all know the claim that drunk people or children always tell the truth. It happens when our brain systems of censorship and inhibition are relaxed, when we are drunk, or when we are young. In children, these systems do not work at all as in adults: they are formed. However, our brain capacity as well as society prepares us to obscure the truth or hide it with the intention of controlling its impact.
Those who have good social skills are those who know how to be sincere, but without hurting. It is not a question of lying, but of conveying the information in an adequate manner. It is not about being the most sincere, but the one who best communicates the truth. The best is to continue to be true to ourselves without forgetting the harm we can do to others. Truth, intelligently transmitted and motivated by good intention, will always be productive.
