I adopt a more relaxed style for my personal projects versus my professional projects.

I couldn't even adopt a relaxed style if I wanted to.
I have one style and it's as relaxed as can be.
And I've used this style in multiple teams and I never had complaints.
Well, no complaints on my style at least Laugh | :laugh:

So consistent with your posting here? Poke tongue | ;-P
But seriously, if single-line if-statements are your worst crime you're doing a pretty good job!
I've seen 100+ line functions, 3000+ line classes (WinForms even), completely absurd and ridiculous database designs that weighed the whole project down, etc.
In that perspective, style really isn't that important.
