    In direct interactions with people, I'm actually very timid and polite...maybe even wimpy. On the outside, I am often tactful because I fear conflict, so in that way, I guess I am nice.

    However, on the inside, I just get angry when I can't stick up for myself. I tend to resist talking to authority figures that I am directly supervised by (such as a boss or a teacher) or anyone I feel personally intimidated by (I'm personally intimidated by people who, in reality, are no one I rationally need to be intimidated by).

    I think it's my niceness that has caused me to lose perspective and the sight of my desires, because I hate hearing the "N" word, which in this case, is "No."

    But I don't think that my reasons for seeming nice are the same on the outside as they are on the inside. My niceness stems from fear of conflict, but on the inside, I'm enraged that I can't be more assertive.

    Not particularly but I take care of the people I care about, if that's nice.

    Wait... Were you being sincere here? *suspicious*

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I can quickly go from being the nicest person you know to the coldest.

    It all comes down to self-preservation.. so it's most dramatic in matters that mean most to me.

    With most others, I'm genuinely nice and easygoing, because they have little affect on me.

    Eh, it depends on the definition of nice. If 'nice' means keeping up pleasantries, sugar-coating my opinions or offering to do some mundane task that I hadn't planned to do beforehand, then I'd be considered a downright bitch. However, if being nice were to mean telling people what they need to hear, doing what needs to be done or occasionally giving the hero just enough information so that he once again can foil my evil schemes (bah!), then I'd still be considered a downright bitch, as people tend to want to what they want and not what they need.

    So perhaps.

    "Nice" is one of those vague, overused words. In my mind it has to do with the effect you have on others, so only those i have affected can make the determination. My intentions are typically to have a peaceful result with others and that probably translates into "nice".

    If by 'nice' you mean sincere and honest and genuinely trying to be helpful, then I guess I'd be nice.

    However, if you consider nice to be polite and pleasant and sweet then I'm not nice at all. Then I'm just a bastard.

    So I guess I could be 'nice' but at the same time be 'rude' and 'unrefined'.

    Yeah, I am a little too direct and opinionated to be super-polite. I do still speak in a generally genteel manner and I have a positive attitude most of the time I have an attitude.
