When someone gives you their measurements and asks if they need to lose weight, do you tell them the truth, or do you go with the copout 'every body is different' and 'it only matters if you feel good about yourself, blah blah" line? Just for example..
- I tell the truthVote A
- I play politicsVote B
It just means that 1) a lot of these people are kidding, and kidding even themselves
and 2) A lot of the 'popularity' types don't answer this question!

I tell it like it really is. However, the truth can be told in a lot of different ways. I focus my answers not so much on telling the truth as on saying what people (sometimes not just the QA) need to hear. Sometimes that means telling them what they want to hear, so they don't doubt themselves too much and remember what exactly it is that they want in the first place, and sometimes it means telling them what they don't want to hear, so they stop trying to hold on to how they wish things would work and start focusing on how they really work.
So basically my answers carry elements of both realism as well as idealism.2
