[Excerpted from a private session posted by Maureen on February 18, 2016.] MEntity: The less one understands something, the more it is feared. The more one understands something, the more it is distrusted. This is because that which is now understood is also that which has been exploited or abused the most. For example, the Sage will tend to distrust others in terms of their honesty because they know the nuances of dishonesty. This is not an indication that Sages are dishonest, but because they know how easily dishonesty can be packaged in honesty, they are far more wary. ### Note: You can comment on this material within the original post.

Originally posted as a private blog. From a POF on May 19, 2014 Maureen: Are there 7 Levels/Stages of Honesty vs 7 Levels/Stages of Lying (dishonesty)? If so, what are they and what are the negative/positive poles for each Level/Stage? MEntity: It may be more accurate to say that there are 7 Types of Dishonesty and Honesty. Dishonesty and Honesty are dynamics of Personality. The type of Honesty or Dishonesty can be linked to a positive or negative pole of an Overleaf, but do not have their own meaningful poles. In other words, if one uses White Lies, it might be hooked in to his or her Mode and its negative pole, or the Goal's negative pole, etc. There is a fairly consistent correlation between the types of honesty and dishonesty and the Axes, but it is not a fixed thing. For instance, White Lies are associated with the Ordinal Inspiration, or the Overleaves corresponding to Server. In terms of the 7 Types of Dishonesty, or Lying, there are: WHITE LIES (Server); DELUSIONAL LIES (Artisan); DEFENSIVE LIES (Warrior); HABITUAL LIES (Scholar); MANIPULATIVE LIES (Sage); DISSOCIATIVE LIES (Priest); COMPARTMENTAL LIES (King). Most of these are fairly clear in how they might show up, but we will elaborate a bit on the Dissociative and Compartmental. Dissociative Lies tend to come in a spectrum that ranges between not feeling responsible for the impact of a lie to having a branching tree whose branches of lies spread out into various parts of the life in ways that are intended never to cross paths. The lies "get out of hand," if you will, and take on a life of their own. Compartmental Lies tend to come as a means of maintaining facets of the self for facets of the life. This kind of lying does not like for certain circles of friends to meet with other circles of friends, for example, because the sense of identity in each of these is carefully constructed from lies specific to that group. The correlation between the Roles and the Lies above does not mean that Priests are prone to Dissociative Lying, or that Kings are prone to Compartmental Lying, but that the entire Axis associated with that Role, if in the Negative Poles, can use that type of lie to protect oneself. All types of lying are accessible, regardless of one's Overleaves, but some are more appealing and more manageable, based on the Overleaves. Maureen: What are the 7 Types of Honesty? MEntity: We could say that the 7 Types of Honesty are: INHERENT/NATURAL (Server); SELECTIVE (Artisan); STRATEGIC (Warrior); OBLIGATORY (Scholar); REVELATORY (Sage); BRUTAL (Priest); CATEGORICAL (King). Do these require elaboration? Maureen: They are clear to me Michael Note: You may comment on this material in the original post. See The 7 Types of Dishonesty and Honesty.
