Bad people think that they are good and being a good one in their own thinking they don't want to be a good one...good people never say that they are good, just because they think that is normal to be good, and can t accept that bad persons really exist...because they try to find escuses for everybody, just because they are good persons. Is complicated, or is very simple? All kinds of people exist in this world. Good ones are always well liked and respected. Still bad ones don't learn. you can look in your mirror,and say to yourself; i am a good person, i don t want make others suffer because of me; can you do this?

Most people are good. There are exceptions to the rule. Circumstances that cause people to bad. This could vary. What could cause one person to go down a crooked path in life, may be something that another person could rebound from. Deep down we all have flaws. Some are minor, some are quite larger. Its kind of hard to say exactly what causes a bad person. I would like to say that I am a good person but there are ugly qualities that could manifest given the wrong circumstances.

To know if you're good or bad, there are two things i believe that can determine this. One of which is other people's critical judgement on your actions while the other is your own intentions and judgements.

I do believe that there are good and bad people. You have the ones that care about so many things and others that dont at all and wouldnt think twice about hurting someone. I think most people try to be good, yet in some cases someone wouldnt agree with what they are doing. There are those few thou that are not just bad but evil, how else do you explain, serial killers, child molesters and others? For me I do what I think is right for me and my family and do the best that I can. I guess I would say Im good and make some mistakes at times thou. Everyone does as it is human nature. I however could never hurt anyone on purpose. Well except for maybe if they were threatening a loved one.

Neither any one in this world is perfectly good nor perfectly bad. Every human being has merits and demerits. Some people have more virtues as compared to the vices tbey have, whereas some people have more vices than the virtues they may be having. The formers come under the good ones and the latter fall into the category of bad ones. Both of them really exist in this world. But one thing more I would like to add. Every body goes on changing every day. The virtues in a particular person a year ago may not be existing now and similarly the bad habits or the vices may have been abandoned by that person over the time. As regards the answer to the second question, my sincere answer would be that I am neither a perfectly good man nor a perfectly bad man. I am a God fearing man but still I may be having or rather I am having some bad habits.

Its simple actually. Good and bad people? Normally we'll tell other people whether they're good or bad, right? Nobody comes into public and say "i am a good person!" or "Fear me cause i'm bad!". So basically whether you are good or bad is based on others judgement. If you understand my point. You are good or bad? Of course i am a good person. Nobody tell themselves that they are evil (except someone with mental problems). If you do something with good intentions, then it's good (for you). The problem is on the people that see your actions and also on religion judgement, again if you understand what i mean.

Hi Icesmile, I can say at any time and any where that I'm a good person. I never harm any one, or cheat any one. but as a human being one can feel whether it is bad or good before doing any thing. the mind always assist u in judging that. but who ignors that can do bad things. if u r good at heart u will never learn a bad thing. and ever harm anyone.but being judged as good or bad by others is some times eaningless.

For me I can say that I am a good person and a responsible citizen as well. However I can be bad sometimes for good cause and valid reasons. It is nice to be bad if your rights are being stolen, your dignity is being rob and your whole life will surely be ruined if you wont do any move at firts before its too late.

The power of discrimination varies from person to person.Those who have it well developed will always be careful never to do bad to others no matter what the circumstances.Such persons are saints and people who are advanced spiritually.To harm others or even to think bad of others never occurs to them. In their opinion everyone is a good soul, it is only circumstances that make them bad.Saints realize this and therefore are always forgiving in nature.Those who live in ignorance cannot differentiate between good and bad and so such people will go on committing bad acts without ever realizing how much harm they are doing.No person is born good or bad, it is their upbringing, circumstances and the company they keep that drives them to either the good side or the bad side.

When we were little, teacher told us, good people will deserve good ending. Parents told us to be a good kid, good kid is what you supposed to be. When we are oldder and oldder, we understand that there are good people and bad people, good people are those who always behave good, nice. Bad people are those who kill people, do bad things. When we getting older, we understand that actually there is not exactly good or exactly bad people, just different opinion and different standard of people. In genera belevie good people are more than bad people.

Every person in this world has some good qualities and some bad qualities to. None of us are completely good nor completely bad because we are human and are in a midway between God and the Evil. Whether a person is good or bad is determined by the ratio of his good qualities to bad qualities,if he has more good qualities than bad ones then he is a good person otherwise not! Its as simple as that,so take out a paper and a pen,chalk out your good and bad qualities and you will know in which category you belong!

icesmile you are oversimplifying this , I am a good person, as ti help others, I try to be kind to people, and yes I can look in the mirror and say I am a good person and I dont want anyone to suffer because of me. I spent all my life in two caring jobs, and they were a part of me. Oh yes I know bad people exist, but they can almost always be helped to become good. you are wrong, good people do say they are good because they know the difference between good and evil.
