Who has not, a hundred times, found himself committing a vile or a silly action, for no other reason than because he knows he should not? Have we not a perpetual inclination, in the teeth of our best judgment, to violate that which is Law, merely because we understand it to be such?

The full Opposite to me... I always consider all of my actions alligning them with law, logics, rationalizm... Well, that's what my character allignment tells - Lawful good... I don't understand and don't like irrational people, who violate law not for something but just for violating it... They say "laws are created to break them" - I never agree, Laws are created to know why could you be punished. That's my position and I always maintain it... Of course under some sircumstances I could consider something more important then the law and violate it. But I would do that only if in that case it would be worse if I would not violate the law then if I violate it. But I'm once and forever rationalist and I do everything only if I consider it right... Everything must be right, and those who don't thing so must be careful not to find themselves suffering because of themselves... I am a rationalist to be sure that I don't suffer because of myself... But still we all suffer...

Jaguar, being "irrational" is not exactly what the passage was all about.
