Question of the Week: Just to Be Polite

Do you frequently find yourself--just to be polite--saying things you don't mean? For example, when you say good-bye to someone who does not interest you, do you act as though you enjoyed their company?

I would say that in most cases, I don't just say nice things to be polite. I don't like to say things if I don't mean them. But that doesn't mean I'll always come right out and say everything I'm thinking. If I don't have anything nice to say, there's a good chance I'll just keep my mouth shut. Probably explains why I'm considered a quiet person so much of the time.

*Question of the Week comes from The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.
