Something straight -term that comes from Latin rectus- is what you don't have angles neither curves . When the concept is used in feminine (straight ), this is a notion of the geometry which refers to the one-dimensional line which, formed by an infinite amount of points, extends in the same direction.
The lines have no beginning or end: they are lines composed of points that follow each other indefinitely . They are considered as one of the fundamental entities of the geometry , like those already mentioned points and the blueprints .
It is important to note that points they also form segments , which are lots of lines (start at one point and end at another). It can be said, in this sense, that a line is formed by different segments.
It is worth mentioning that people outside the mathematics they confuse the concepts of line and segment many times; It is very common for people to believe they are drawing a (complete) line when drawing a line on a sheet. In part, the problem may arise in the geometry lessons themselves in school, since the graphical representation of the line also has a beginning and an end , although it is only a portion of it, a segment.
Another way to define a line is as the set of points that are, along, in the space where two intersect blueprints . When someone cuts a line, two are created semi-straight : they have a beginning (the point where the line is interrupted), but not an end (they extend indefinitely).
A person straight , on the other hand, is the one that does not deviate from moral rules or of what is considered correct. For example: “The manager is a straight man who would never be involved in an act of corruption”, “I am a straight woman, with firm values and principles that are not negotiated”, “I thought you were a straight person, but I was wrong”.
In this case, although there is a general notion of the behaviors of a person of good , the word straight can be interpreted in several ways, also depending on the ideas and beliefs of each one, and this makes it a very concept subjective . To understand this phenomenon, let's look at two characteristics that can be perceived differently, according to the observer.
First, let's take the case of the responsibility , another concept that can be understood in different ways: an individual who never misses his job except in situations of force majeure, who pays all his taxes and debts as of date, who remembers all his commitments at length and always offers his loved ones all the help you can give them, can be defined as a responsible being, among other attributes, and, in the same way, as a straight person.
On the other hand, we can talk about chastity in the case of an individual who has commitments Religious who prevent you from having sex: in the eyes of those who share your beliefs, if you fulfill your mandates you will be seen as a straight person. However, everything changes when the observers of both situations disagree with the way of life of these subjects.
Someone who fulfills all their commitments and who presents a attitude Impeccable can be suffocating for certain people, even being perceived as an individual who cannot externalize their problems and who lives in this way for fear of letting others down; In other words, he would not be seen as a straight person, but perhaps prey to his fears. Chastity, on the other hand, may be unjustifiable for many, regardless of the reasons, and therefore they would not include it in their definition of "righteousness."
Go straight ahead finally it is a idea which mentions moving along a road without detours or detours: "Since winning his first professional tournament, the tennis player moves straight ahead to the Top Ten in the world rankings".
