What is the most predominant philosophical attitude toward mathematics among mathematicians?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am talking about things like mathematical platonism, formalism, logicism etc.

In some circumstances I feel that I am a platonist (e.g when thinking about pi) in others logicist or formalist etc. Does one have to be one or other?

Thx in advance.
