This can be a disadvantage in some situations and may be taken for -1.
Tommy Templeton has a sensitive conscience (-1) and does not join in the theft of a policeman's helmet on Boat Race night. He is still hesitating on the street corner as his mischievous companion races away with the helmet and has great difficulty in lying when the policeman asks him if he saw who it was that stole the helmet.
He stammers a bit and says "No officer, I`m sorry, I must have been looking the other way". To determine the plausibility of this statement, he rolls a d10 and adds his Old Grey Matter rating (which is +1) but modifies the result with his Conscience of -1. He rolls a 4, gaining him a plausibility of 4 (4+1-1).
