Tries to be perfect in the other's eyes

There are some people in this world who go through their whole lives without thinking of the effect their actions have on other people. Often, they go into telemarketing, or politics. As for myself, I am constantly aware that every waking moment I am more than capable of arseing everything up within about ten minutes if given the opportunity!
