Interesting question. Though I think a more pertinent question - if slightly off-topic - is what's wrong with being a hypocrite? Let's challenge perceptions... I don't believe - for one split second - that there are people who act and think entirely along the lines of their beliefs as they progress through life. In fact, it can be argued that our ability to adapt and change to various situations and developments is what makes humans so successful. It seems that people - especially online - hold some lofty impression of the internal logic of their own beliefs and it almost becomes like a cult. You have to like certain things and dislike certain things to fit them into your belief system, regardless of the individual merit of the things you're considering. It seems awfully limiting to me. By saying I'm a hypocrite, I'm not saying that I don't have beliefs or values. It's just that I am happy to go outside of them if I think I might benefit from it. It's a question of degrees. If someone is hypocritical about everything they do, they probably aren't worth your time, but similarly, if someone is so uptight that they can't expose themselves to experiences outside of their sphere of influence then to me that person will be boring, dogmatic and a waste of human potential. If being able to experience a range of contradictory things makes me a hypocrite then I am proud to wear that label, as I'd rather be someone who is the sum of a wide range of experience than be someone who lived a hermit like existence, only enjoying a narrow and restricted range of the world's offerings.
