Neutral vs Faithful Picture Styles

What's everyone's opinion on the various stock Picture Styles? I find Neutral and Faithful useful, depending on the scene I'm shooting. Faithful seems to add a 'warmth' to the image that Neutral lacks, but Neutral seems to match what my eyes see when shooting.

The usual answer is modify Neutral with Contrast and Saturation down for grading purposes. But, I'm looking for the best looking results 'without' grading. Once I settle on what editing software to use, I'll do the usual suggestions.

According to a Canon rep at an intermediate course, Faithful is supposed to be the most true to real life. Personally, I prefer Neutral.

This review for the 7D also mentions Faithful as being the most accurate for color..especially skin tones:

Canon EOS 7D Digital Camera Review - Canon DSLR - DigitalCameraInfo.com

The T2i and 7D share the same sensor tech so I would think the results would be close to the same. Most of their reviews I take with a giant grain of salt but this seems to verify what the Canon rep said.
