You don't hold back! When it comes to personal matters, you probably have a hard time keeping your thoughts to yourself. You don't feel the need to cushion your words. Chances are that you believe that white lies just mislead others. Unfortunately, this type of blunt honesty can easily offend people. Honesty is a great policy, but sometimes censoring your words -- or choosing them carefully -- is a necessary and more-sensitive way to communicate.

You deserve a pat on the back for being moral in the rat race. While it is very beneficial to employ honesty in the workplace, it is also very important to keep in mind that the truth can be softened through the use of a thoughtful phrase. In any environment it is imperative to remember to choose your words carefully, especially when they have the potential to be offensive. In the workplace it might be beneficial to keep your harsh thoughts to yourself -- even if they are your true opinions -- and instead find a more sensitive way to communicate the message.

In general, people tend to respond better to this attitude because accidents do not stem from bad intentions. Your honesty and genuine concern can often counteract the fault itself.
