As fio says, it is deception, and deliberately misleading, and the result would be just the same as a lie. Though sometimes you convince yourself that it is actually for the benefit of the other person, usually closer scrutiny shows that it's primarily intended to benefit yourself.
Thios is why in court, they don't ask you just to swear to tell the truth, but to tell the Truth, the WHOLE truth, and nothing but the truth.

They are two very different things, but they amount to the same thing - Deception!

Human nature, sometimes we are just not ready to spill the beans. As long as you don't lie, not telling the whole story is not lying. All in time when you are ready. Just make them understand you not ready to talk about it.

i agree with bee, it could be more damaging to spill the beans as it were. consider the repercussions before giving the 'whole truth & nothing but the truth".

I'd say it depends what it is and the circumstances around it.
