Remember how Jim Carrey's character in Liar Liar had such a hard time telling the truth and when he did, people were shocked and amazed? We lie so much that it's bad for us. But what would happen if we were completely honest for a day?

Writer James Altucher, who took the total honesty approach, believes the following things happen:
  • People will stop speaking to you.
  • People might think you're going to kill yourself
  • People will think you're crazy.
  • You'll frighten people.
  • You'll entertain people.
  • People will trust your advice.
  • You'll become free.
So is honesty really the best policy? Or is it good to sometimes keep to yourself what you feel about a certain topic?
