National Honesty Day: Celebrated Every 30th April.

Today is national honesty day. Every 30TH of April which is the last day of the month April we celebrate trustworthiness, openness, truthfulness, and frankness. This day was established in other to motivate people to not forget the importance of honesty.

National Honesty Day was created by M. Hirsh Goldberg while he was doing research for his book: “The Book of Lies: Schemes, Scams, Fakes, and Frauds That Have Changed the Course of History and Affect Our Daily Lives.” in 1991. While some critics say that he coined this holiday to sell more books, Mr. Goldberg has stated that he created the holiday to serve as a contrast to April Fool’s Day.

How to participate
Urge everyone around you to tell the truth by always telling the truth.



The whole truth and nothing but the truth is one of the most difficult acts for humans to perform,  and the question today is why do people find it very difficult, to be honest

  1. If other people are dishonest you lose by being honest

  2. It becomes difficult to be honest if your intention is to prove to others that you are an honest person.


    When a person tries to be honest for their own sake, does it willingly and not under any form of compulsion, they will start loving that process and derive happiness in being honest.

  3. People are as honest as it’s socially expedient to be.


    Which means if the people around them are being honest, they’ll join in but if they’re being dishonest then they’ll be dishonest too.


    Most people don’t value truth for it’s own sake; they lie or tell the truth according to what will benefit them the most at any given moment.

  7. Some people feel compelled to respond to everything, as if they're being interrogated; some feel a need to be more than they are in reality; some people engage in deception.


    Inquisition Reaction: For any one or more of a variety of reasons, abuse, trauma, duress, coercion, or other trauma due to psychological torture, some people feel they must produce information about themselves or their lives, even when they do not want to disclose, let alone discuss, themselves, one has to respond to something they consider private. They'll lie if they feel forced to produce.
    Inferiority Reaction: Some people feel they have no accomplishments or experiences to bring to the table. This, at least in my view, is untrue; everyone has a different seat in the bleachers, thus unique perspectives. That said, this is often triggered by the result of the arrogance, biases, class-conscience, or expectations of the audience. Some people can't help reacting this way, and once they resent the interaction, it's gonna be game on. To be fair, it is hilarious to know this is happening [I can tell sometimes] and watch judgmental assholes get offended by the sensational statements some pissed-off people will throw out there if they have nothing else to lose in that interaction. [My personal favorite pissed statement in response to questions about my college education: “I dropped out of the 10th grade. Is that a problem for you? ��” — ��]
    Deceptive Reaction: Some people have a goal. That goal is not to tell you the truth.
    Honest Processing: Some people are still processing, and in the course of their effort, they are likely to make statements that indicate dishonesty, but in fact is not dishonest—they are either only partially verbalizing thoughts for feedback and additional processing. Some people actually *honestly* are capable of updating their views based on what they learn from discussions with others, which are imperative to fleshing out views they have not previously given enough thought to form a full view or position. [This is how I learn, and it is amazing what I have learned simply throwing an idea or position out for response—an honest idea, with the caveat that I don't know much or have little basis on which to form a stronger or more accurate idea.]

    Now, important to note this last, having given the above basic overview of why people feel they cannot be honest: what makes you believe they are being dishonest? Unless you are investigating every claim every person with whom you interact shares with you, you have no idea. You can make this statement once you have verified that a given claim is in fact dishonest. You cannot do this. Most people cannot do this.


    Best to apply Occam's Razor to your interpersonal life, until or unless you identify concrete contradictions or you have facts sufficient to demonstrate dishonesty. This is a dangerous world, but you can miss many of those dangers just as easily when you automatically assume that people are dishonest. Whether or not you encounter those hidden dangers, the other hidden danger is this: you will drive yourself insane trying to analyze everyone with whom you come into contact.

  8. That's a very complicated question. Fear. Betrayal. Ridicule. Safety. Duality. Ego. Greed. Plus “honest" is a relevant term with a slippery slope (open to interpretation)

  9. Fear of judgment. Which is understandable due to society today.
