Is it good to always be honest?

My notes while listening to them were: It is mostly good to be truthful. The longer the relationship, the better it seems to be truthful. Trust is an outcome of honesty.
Morality is partly innate, partly learned and a great deal influenced by environment. We are born with the capacity to be honest. We can change cultural norms, eg: helping strangers.
Developmental psychology provides a promising area of research.

Highlight of the week was the insightful Dishonesty Debate with Dan Ariely, Peter Bloom, and Paul Singer. If you missed it, check it out with the link below:
