    Speaking to an audience is very close to acting, or at least can be. I don't count acting to be fake if people you are acting to know that you are acting. If they don't know, and you know that they don't know, you are being fake.

    So "fake" to you does not include "motivation" as a determining force?

    I think we're always "acting" to some degree. So motivation is more decisive to me in determining the morality of the act, not the act of acting itself.

    Or do we always assume and understand the other person is "on" to some degree?

    Meh, I put 20-30% because I generally agree that a lot of people are fake (to an extent, basically the things nolla outlined), but I think 0-10% is being sorta pessimistic about humanity

    Well, if you act and know that the others don't know, it is quite obvious that you have some motivation to deceive them, isn't it?

    So again, back to motivation: Is it always wrong to "deceive" someone?

    What motivations might be positive?
    What motivations might be negative?
    Is it always negative?

    Yes, but for what reason? Which brings to question, the morality.

    Well, have you ever heard that "You only have one chance to make a first impression"?

    Is that not an admonition to be deceptive?

    As in, you may occasionally pick your nose, but honesty does not require that you do so during your job interview.

    Yeah, good questions... I don't know. I usually feel bad about deceiving people...

    I do too, actually. So I'm usually torn.
