Assuming the players are on board and willing to recognize the arguments other players' make regarding their behavior, sure, I'd probably go along with this. And, likewise, if the other players are willing to consider what I say to explain my character's behavior.
It helps, of course, that I have a pretty solid idea of the alignment I almost always prefer to play (LG), and do in fact choose to play most characters in accordance with it. (E.g., don't tell lies even if they would be really really useful right now, be kind to people especially the sick, elderly, disabled, children, etc., show respect to authority unless that authority has clearly abrogated its responsibilities/duties/limitations, uphold just laws and work to fix/replace/repeal unjust laws, resorting to defiance/rebellion/etc. only as a last-ditch effort after sincere commitment to upholding tradition/government/loyalty, etc.)
