I see Hypocrites as people who are really not interested in being consistent. They see no value and no worth in being consistent and presenting a consistent view to those they meet or share their lives with.
Consistency is one of the keys to the truth, if someone says one thing, and then a contradictory thing with equal vigor then they have a problem, but you do also...
The trick is to watch for these people and learn how they work, knowledge and understanding about them allows you to be less troubled by them.
Ultimately they are only fooling themselves.
However, although they can be deluded, they still have good ideas, can still be good people, can make good friends, and one needs to be open minded enough to not shun them because of prior indiscretions.
