Sure, everyone is a hypocrite to some degree. I try to stay positive about it though.. be aware of my opinions and such.. be as unhypocritical as I can be.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Honestly, I try as hard as I can not to be, but, yeah, sometimes I can be one too. But as so many pointed out, we all can be hypocritical at some times in our lives. But you know, willingness to admit it makes you far less of one, IMHO. :laugh:

I think people are often hypocritical because they (myself included from here on) don't truly understand what it is they believe in. They may believe heavily in one side of a subject, but just for a split instance the opposing side appeals to them. They say, or do something hypocritical, and then realize that what they did was wrong.

Unless you truly understand everything about yourself (which I don't think many people do) then you are going to be hypocritical on some occasions whether you mean to or not, despite how much you know you didn't mean what you said/did.

Maybe its because there is always more than one side to an argument or situation. If you completely choose one side, and realize there are other points of view but disregard them you are automatically a hypocrite. The only way not to be one, would be to agree with everyside of a situation, and not really choose any path I guess, or to choose all paths. But then again, if you understand the other sides point of view, but still believe your side is better, that is not being hypocritical. Or if you are too ignorant to even realize the other side has a point and you completely believe in yours then you are also not hypocritical.

Hmmmm, with that said I guess I can consider myself non-hypocritical for the most part, but occasionally hypocritical depending on the issue i guess.  :smirk:

Yeah, sometimes "hypocritical" is just a harsh way to say one can change their mind.

I also ~try~ to avoid using the fact that "everyone is hypocritical sometimes" as an excuse to be hypocritical.
I sometimes fail at that, too.
