  • I usually take them at face value (unless i sense not to) I don't assume all "nice" or friendly people have ulterior motives. I'm not that paranoid.

    I am generally "nice" to people, and i would hate anyone to mistake my kindness/niceness as a manipulation tactic , or assume i had a sinister ulterior motive in mind

  • If its someone my age I don't tend to trust them. Or someone older than me that looks like he could hurt.

  • Depends. I take it at face value but if they do something unusually nice I start to question their motives.

  • It depends on the person. I can tell when someone is being phony if they're acting "nice"

  • I have an arguably bad tendency to assume the good of some people. Though I also sometimes get weird vibes from others for some reason. I think there are some people who really are nice for the sake of niceness, and some people I can figure out after awhile if they're genuine or not, but usually, at least at first, I'd probably take niceness at face value...

  • I am not sure if this is just how I am or because of the people I met but I always assume that they have some ulterior motivate until I know them a little bit better. Even though I think this way I still try to be nice to people.

  • Yeah face value until given reason to think otherwise. However, too nice is a red flag.

  • It depends on how I read them... I make a judgement call based on their character... All the puzzle pieces make a picture.
