Who does one learn from the most? A tactful person that masks truths in order to keep an audience or an honest person that presents reality no matter how bad it hurts.
imo. A tactful person can be quite slippery with facts in the way they change the meaning of a symbol to better how people view them and promote their propaganda. Then soon enough this new symbol has a completely different meaning and becomes unnatural. Which can make the whole relation unnatural. i will admit that i can be quite slippery with facts but i replace them by being an a-hole via filling in my own facts. This is usually because tactfulness has seemed to skipped some facts that should have been added to the source that provided only tactful facts out of dishonesty in order to be tactfull. The way i attract a croud is tossing out some edible BS if the subject is worth it. Yet, i am sure to make that BS be very truthful.
What exactly should the characteristics of a tactful environment be? It's usually a bunch of similar minded people. Why are they similar minded? They're not. They're all just being tactful
