56. I think that there is a good bit of unintentional deception
basicly, there are those who are scroupulously forthright, and there are those who are inveterate liars, but the majority don't have the energy or the drive to be either, so they portray themselves more as the self we see ourselves as. Which has a tendancy to be a slightly more heroic person than who we really are.
