1. Do you think ‘white’ lies can be justified?

It is a tricky question. On the one hand it is a good idea to be truthful. On the other hand we have to lie so as not to hurt other person’s feelings. It is difficult for a doctor to tell his patient that he is likely to pass away in the near future. Even teachers have to lie by saying that something is easy to do with the aim of encouraging those who are not sure whether they succeed or not,

2. Do you think boys cheat more than girls?

I don’t think that boys cheat more often than girls. I don’t agree that boys are liars by birth. In my humble opinion the way in which boys are usually brought up has something to do with this problem. Girls are expected to be obedient whereas boys are taught to be rebellious and ready to stand up to any misfortune. We are taught not to give up, but it means breaking some rules in order not admit your defeat. Most lies of which boys are accused are of this kind. Willingness to fight back is the other side of the problem.

3. Do you think software pirating can be stopped?

Software piracy is a modern phenomenon and it is not a form of bloody pirating as copying is not a theft. If someone steals something the victim doesn’t have it in his possession. If someone copies a file from another person, both of them have it. None loses anything. Another thing is that paying for a game or a song you let the author of it go on mastering his skill to bring out a product of higher quality. I would call it an investment which worth making.

4. What excuses do you usually give not to do something?

There are many different kinds of excuses which are made up not to do something. I have always thought that the best way is to admit that you were wrong. Having admitted that you were not a success is the first step to understanding the root of the matter which is the keystone of success.
