I do show up late to other things such as appointments. I also don’t usually care when people are late as long as it isn’t an excessive amount of time (20 minutes or more). I definitely like things to remain objective, not only when judging people. I rather deal in facts and avoid opinionated viewpoints. I also prefer having tasks presented to me in a straightforward way so I know exactly what I need to do. I almost always hide my emotions and ideas when it comes to…
