Personality: I’m a little obsessed with justice. Not vengeance. Justice. Fairness. That kind of thing.

Combine the two and you have: a person who is frequently thanked for saying things that other people don’t really want to hear. But when they thank you, they’re not usually particularly thrilled with you. They appreciate you…and they respect you…they might even love you…but right then, they don’t really like you very much, even if they might agree with just a morsel of what you’re saying. Even if you’ve tried to be clear that you respect their point of view.
