    Some of you are very particular and demanding. Do you fit your own descriptions?

    A good person means well and does little harm to others. If they do some harm, they feel guilt and regret and try to make things right. Selfishness is kept to a minimum and tolerance is practiced.

    Consistency, loyalty and considering others before self.

    I don't think there is such thing as a good person. There are good and bad actions, but people are people.

    The ideal:
    - Critical thinker
    - Honest
    - Independent
    - Intelligent: someone who knows what they know and knows what they don't, and knows when to use it; who borders on know-it-all-ism but doesn't quite cross that line
    - Someone with the ability to appreciate good humour
    - Someone who isn't ashamed to have talent
    - Someone who is willing to question their own beliefs in the face of opposing evidence

    The real: a good person is someone who strives for the ideal, regardless of whether or not it can be attained.

    Thanks!

    It's difficult to pick a favourite album. Quite like Blonde on Blonde. Are you a fan?

    I think that questioning what makes a person 'good' isn't spoken about enough. It was discussed by ancient scholars and philosophers at length. In todays washed up society... well... i'm not really surprised that people overlook the significance of such a question.

    Being a hypocrite doesn't make an argument or statement any less valid. Who cares if we do or do not?

    Being a good person depends on how you deal with everything that is not yourself. Wether your actions contribute positively to the focus of your attention. A matter of intentions as well.
    But my T shadow says there's no such thing as good or bad.

    A good person is honest, kind, and humble, and displays these Big Three qualities most of the time.

    Unqualified tolerance doesn't figure in; blanket tolerance is manifestly dysfunctional.

    Responsibility is a nice feature to have, but one can lack it and still be a good person. The same is true of being wise, smart, or capable. I wouldn't say that's true of the Big Three.

    I don't believe in good and evil. But maybe here good is meant to be "efficient", instead of morally sound, I mean "efficient" as in "able to lead a life where you don't hurt others and yourself too much" not in the stereoptypied SJ meaning of the the word.

    I think that being compassionate towards others, being able to question yourself and recognize your feelings, being brave enough to stand up in front of enemies and adversities and not hurting others just to hide your cowardice and failures would do.

    So, good means kind and courageous mostly. Some people aren't "good", but it means that they are weak, not evil. Also, nobody is good all the time, humans are weak sometimes.

    Maybe honest, kind and responsible are the stereotypes for the word good?

    Like dorareever's posts, good and evil don't really exist. It could even mean self-confident. Most say 'good' people don't cause harm, and don't create it. So aren't most normal people good people?
