It seems that no one is exempt from being a hypocrite at some time in their lives, whether mentally, or with word or deed. If we believe that someone is not a hypocrite, then it is probably because we do not know them deeply enough. The world is far too varied, and most of us are far too set with our beliefs, for a hypocritical tension not to exist during our lives. And so there is the hypocrisy of being two-faced, deceptive, upholding a facade, pretence, white lies, hidden opinions and bigotry, and so on. However, of course it is preferable that we strive not to be hypocritical.
