    I haven't thoroughly read every single one of the responses in here, but I have to say this one stood out, and strikes a chord with what I have in mind when I think of a 'good person'.

    When I think of a 'good person', I don't have a list of characteristics in mind. All that comes to my mind is someone with a good, pure heart. I guess what I mean by that is open to your interpretation, but Gen's definition comes fairly close to it.

    why? Actually this is the very core of my beliefs. I never thought it sounded INFJ-ish

    Not having all those things does not necessarily make you a bad person, but for me, you at least need to try to have the bolded qualities to be a good person. As for the other qualities, you don't need them to be a good person and having them doesn't make you a good person, but they make you an interesting person.

    I believe in good and evil and I think that a person becomes what they habitually do. Plus, your actions come from what is in your heart. If your actions are consistently selfish or malicious, chances are that you are a selfish or malicious person. Malice is evil and selfishness taken to extremes is evil.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
