I'm honest to a fault, and I think openness improves everything! I'm sure I could whip you up some high horsed intellectual justification for this if you demanded it, but I secretly suspect that my natural instinct for openness and honesty comes first and then my conscious brain comes trundling along after it with the excuses.
I'm laid back - I suspect that people who 'work hard & play hard' are just making things difficult for themselves - I'd much rather take both in my stride.
I occasionally have a rush of blood to the head and become all moral - I often feel pretty frowny towards theism and it's effects in the world, and I think it's a shame that governments often seem motivated by misguided concepts of 'right/wrong' rather than 'effective/ineffective'. And far too much emphasis is put on the negative act of legeslation rather than positive acts of support and stimulation. But I'd say I'm generally very liberal and I do love chatting to people who have very different views from my own. I love weirdos :)
