Gave this some thought.

Dishonesty is the one that I came up with.

I'm too honest for my own good. I call a spade a Elephanting shovel. Rather than just keeping schtum when asked about something I'll give an honest answer, when sometimes jsut shutting up or nodding in agreement might have been the better course of events.

e.g.
"So can we just add a new text box to this View to capture that?"
Best answer - "sure, I'll look into it."
My answer - "Well, you'd need to have some validation behind it, and it can't just be a text box or the users will type in rubbish. And we also need a table holding initial values that the user can add to and possibly delete from ... and so on...

e.g.
Does my bum look big in this?
Best answer - "Heck no! Your bum looks perfect in anything
My answer - "Weeeeeellllll... OUCH!"
MVVM # - I did it My Way
