    good and bad are too broad of a term yet too confining at the same time so I don't think people in general are good or bad their's to many variables to a person to say in general what they are. Plus if you divide people up just to good and bad, but nothing in the middle then I don't know it's not worth it imo. Everyone I know has good and bad traits about them I don't like everything about my friends nor do i hate everything about the people I can't stand. Just aspects of them. I can't say everyone is either good or bad, but as far as I can tell majority of them would not kill a dog that wouldn't stop barking or a baby that won't stop crying.

    People, in general, are selfish, not bad.

    this topic again.

    people have some "bad" intentions, to begin with. they will improve them, get rid of them, replace them, if it that is rewarded. and there are more variants of rewards, than just those that have a exclusively-selfish value. and that works precisely because people are never ONLY selfish, to begin with. and yeah, in this sentence, "bad" is actually a purely relative value.

    Without getting to a big argument about defining good and bad (which I think is relative anyhow)... I think people are naturally inclined to be selfish or "bad." Even what most people consider "selfless" is selfish in itself -- for example, you share your beer with your roommate to be nice not expecting anything in return... yet, the sharing of the beer makes YOU happy (you may even do it as an act of friendship to earn his company in return -- of course I, ENFP, would NEVER do this...). Selfish regardless of how much thought went into it. This is obviously a more cynical view, but I think it holds.

    Nonsense.

    There is no "good" or "bad". Only information, and what we choose to do with it.

    My perspective is that people are selfish to begin with. Greedy, highly individualistic, thoughtless, etc. Like children, essentially. Through growth and maturation, that can be overcome, though.
