It is a psychological fact and a moral virtue. As a matter of fact, it is the conformity of actions and words with the interior life. As a virtue, it is love or respect for the truth.
Being in good faith is not always telling the truth because we can be wrong, it is at least telling the truth about what we believe. It is what we call sincerity and the opposite of lies, hypocrisy, duplicity, in short terms, all forms of bad faith.
Pointing out the truth to those who have not asked for it, to those who cannot bear it, to those who tear or crush, is not good faith, it is brutality, insensitivity and violence, because the truth does not replace everything.
Good faith does not forbid silence, but it forbids lying to others and to oneself.
Virtue without good faith is bad faith and not virtue.
