    Hey,

    What is your opinion of people in general? Do you think that people are generally good, bad etc?

    Mainly people that you have met on a personal basis.

    I think the majority of people are dicks.

    Maybe I've just had bad experiences, but in general, I'd say most people just aren't bloody worth it :sad: the way people can be so blatantly horrible honestly confuses me, which is why you should never take anyone nice or trustworthy for granted.

    I like to think that I regard people on an individual basis, but I generally believe that most people are well meaning. It's just egos, putting on a front and maybe a lack of confidence which detract us from seeing the true person. I'm probably naive in saying that but oh well.

    I reckon that, generally speaking, there is a tendency towards the good. It's just that life scars people, and so it can be quite difficult to break through the walls they build around them.

    Of course, some people are just nasty.

    Took the words right out of my mouth, particularly about the walls etc.

    Sad really isn't it, because everyone's born a lovely innocent baby...

    Wah.

    I try to be neutral before I meet someone. I think that many people are scum. And of those that are good, many of them are weak. Weakness is just as disgusting to me.

    My opinion in general, is that everyone suffers. And that everyone is shaped by their suffering.

    Why is weakness to be treated with such contempt?

    I don't factor in such things like confidence or anxiety issues but I hate people who blame their actions on their environment and have a victim complex. People who are easily influenced also put me off.

    when I'm in public feel like I'm on the wildlife channel observing a wild herd of animals doing absolutely nothing.

    Oh and people these days make my faith in humanity level go from -1000 to -100000000000000000.

    It is sad.

    There are these guys who live down the street from me. Typical laddy lads, full of attitude, always acting tough. Yet a while ago I was struggling with my shopping bags, and one of them offered to help me and called over one of his friends to help me with the other bags. They carried my shopping to my door and got all shy and awkward when I thanked them. Just reminded me to not be so quick to judge people.

    95% of them are ********s. :unimpressed: About 20 minutes ago I started war with some ***** who thinks she owns the parking space on the pavement in front her house. It belongs to the council so she doesn't have the right to say who can/can't park there. :rant: She actually had the nerve to say that if my brother parked there again she'd call the police! I almost laughed in her face. Most people are irrational like this crazy ***** so most people are ********s. :unimpressed:

    Aw yeah, something similar happened to me. We were walking down a small stretch of pavement and two balling teenagers were up ahead and we were like ah dear this should be interesting. Both boys made a point of moving and waiting and we thanked them and they were so polite saying you're alright, was lovely. I felt bad for presuming they'd charge at us. Aw that'll teach us.

    As a rule of thumb I dislike everyone.


    Obviously there are a few exceptions :rolleyes:

    I assume the worst so that I'm either pleasantly surprised or the reality is in line with my expectations. That way, I'm not left disappointed.

    I think people are awful in general.

    I think most people, face to face, one on one, are perfectly fine. But if you add friends, alcohol, cars or a social networking site, the majority would turn into complete idiots at the click of a finger.

    Isn't the hard part separating the untrustworthy from the trustworthy? At least, that's what I find hard.. :/

    They're mostly good, but capable of great evil, there are too many of them, and they will shaft you given half a chance

    I've sort of lost interest in socialising, in the sense that I don't bother saying "hi" or "goodbye" anymore. At this point in my life, everyone feels so disposable, apart from my family ofc.

    Hopefully I won't feel like this for long, because I kind of want to make long term friendships.

    I guess the people I have come across are generally nice because most people in my classes are nice, they've got Hufflepuff written all over them! But there have been quite a few people I've met and become friends with then I realize that they're actually horrible and nasty. My gut usually tells me who's nice and who isn't. It just depends on a person's character and true colours
