Does someone's actions define them as a person?

I always hear people say
"don't judge me by my actions" or
"my actions don't dictate who I am as a person"

I disagree completely..
If you do bad things that defines you as a bad person in my book..
Vice versa.. If you do good things that defines you as a good person..

But then there are people that aren't good or bad.. I haven't done anything bad worth mentioning in my lifetime. I stole a can of coke when I was 10, and I smoked the odd joint. But I also haven't done anything amazingly good.. Some of my friends have built schools in Africa with their own money.. Whereas I haven't really done anything great..

  • Their actions definitely do play a part in how I see others, no doubt.

  • Actions and words show someone for what they are, actions speak of character quite well.

    Strive, struggle, and torment show a person's true self though, you'll never see a person's true colors more clearly then when they're in a horrible situation, or under strive, struggle and stress.

  • Its true.

    Good and bad are relative. Whats bad to you might be good for someone else, and so on.

    Your actions don't define you, your intentions do.

  • If their actions aren't what make them as a person then what makes them a person, their thoughts? If they do think that they're completely wrong because thoughts don't dictate who a person is. While actions most likely do. Bad people do bad actions and nice people do nice actions.
