2. Open, honest, and interested. 

"I tend to judge the people in the community in which I am doing my voluntary work" Is that part of being open, honest, and interested?
"I find it difficult when the volunteers ask me to do more for the children. They want more staff and more facilities. Unfortunately, we cannot arrange this. Volunteers get angry with me, I do not like that. I would rather have them ask why this is the case, then I can explain it to them."

Are the volunteers in this example being open, honest and interested?
