Since most of the public(I am sure about Bangalore) belong to "the one who stops only when the traffic police is present" category and those who 'stops at red light even when the traffic police is not present' appear rare, you should have reversed the descriptions for Confirmist and Maverick.

I am a Conformist. Considering there are so many Conformists (in Bangalore), how come I feel so lonely when stopped at the traffic signal. Would be nice to have company @ the red signals where traffic is honking and trying to intimidate me into breaking a red light.

hey, this poll is turning out to be a good one.

p.s. the traffic light thing is just an example to explain the three options.
it would be more accurate if everyone select their option w.r.t. overall road sense.

Am a conformist .But the rash bus drivers in cochin never allow the ppl here to be one coz when they see the signal they come at full speed with horns in high alerts and cluster of mean words to move off their track..
