    Default Describe a good person

    The idea for this thread comes from cafe's comments in the "My Naive View of Relationships" thread by
    prplchknz.

    Honest? Kind? Responsible? That's the kind of thing I mean.

    Honest. Friendly. Kind. Respects others. Wants to do the right thing. Moral. Altruistic. Modest. Independent. Respects self. Wants to help.

    Something like that.

    There are too many different kinds of good person to name. Moreover, we all have the capability to be good, and at different times in our lives have different levels of goodness, if you will.

    But traits that I personally admire are:

    The ability to be compassionate not only toward others, but also and especially toward oneself.
    Independence.
    Honesty, i.e. the courage to put oneself out there genuinely.
    Critical thinking.
    A sense of humor.
    Silliness.
    A sense of wonder and imagination.
    Mellowness.
    Courage in general.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    empathy. openness--to new experiences, and to others. tolerance: to understand, even if you cannot accept. not to judge. warmth. strength. gentleness. courage. loyalty, honesty. selflessness.

    ie, non existent.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    Not true. Sound like me, probably you too if these are your values. Nobody is perfect, and different people consider different things important.

    Some people might say someone who is "God fearing" makes a person good. I fear god but only because he turns people into whack jobs. Such religious people might not consider me a good person.

    A good person?

    Generous, intelligent, polite, meticulous, sympathetic, adroit, artistic, and practical.

    That's how I wish I were, anyway...

    Yeah, tolerant and accepting would describe what I consider as a good person.

    Actually I don't fully understand the OP's question. I can totally respect somebody I don't consider particularly good as a person and I can meet a really good person whom I won't respect too much.
    The reasons why I can respect a person, admire them, hang out with them, or consider them good people do not necessarily coincide.
