      This is another insightful post. Your description of when you hold back vs fully engage in a values based discussion is telling. Having the ability to assess your audience and the situation accurately is key to adapting to the needs of your patient. It is worthwhile to size up the risks and benefits of a values based conversation and then decide how to respond. You may find some patient situations / conversations that justify sharing your thoughts even when they are in conflict with those of your patient. However, in casual conversation I would agree totally that a restrained approach and a tone of neutrality is key!
      Good work!
