Respect II

An important gauge of someone's respect for your beliefs, which I neglected to mention earlier, is how seriously they take you when you discuss them, and how hard they try to convince you of some other idea. In particular, if a person tells you that holding your particular set of beliefs means you are not thinking for yourself, and calls them "cute", you should be really, really dubious of the "respect" he has for you.
