Do you like people?

Generally, I have found that people hurt one another so much that it makes me really disappointed. On the other hand, I find people fascinating and want to understand behavior and thought processes. Do you like people?

  • Let's just say i want to like people.
    I consider myself a positive person i greet each day with a smile but then i open the door and go out into the world. Lol
    I don't want to sound cliche but everyone is fighting personal you know nothing about. I just try to keep that in mind and be a positive force as much as i can.

    In the end it's not the fortune you amass, the things you owned, or the titles you held. But the lives you touched that really matters. I truly believe that.

  • I like people, I may not like the malicious intention that some may have, but in the end I have the power to take them personal or not, and that choice makes a big difference in how affected I can get by those people or not. 😊🙆🏻‍♀️

  • I do, generally speaking, but I think it's because I'm such a flawed person myself and have made many mistakes in my life. So I can't really look so negatively at people even if they're very imperfect, or selfish, or hostile, or idiotic, or vain. It's like if I see flawed people in a negative way, how am I supposed to look at myself in a positive way? :-D

      Kind of going back to what we spoke about earlier with hyper-empathy, which is something I seem to also have, I used to dislike people most when I was younger who actually had a lot of the same weaknesses in common with me. In fact, I was projecting my self-loathing onto them. It's like, "I hate me, and you have a lot in common with me, therefore I hate you." While I don't believe so much in "self-love", learning to accept my faults and trying to overcome them and make fun of them helped me to also just take on a more favorable view of humanity in general. It started to become like, "I accept me, and we have some faults in common, so I also accept you."

      I'm introspective to a fault. It's kind of a tightrope balancing act between sanity and insanity. :-D

    • 12 d ago

      Actually, if you work as I do in any way, I've found it very therapeutic to try to be friendly with people of all sorts, even people my younger self might have found off-putting. That doesn't that mean you have to date them or become best friends or put yourself in a vulnerable spot where the worst ones might exploit you. It's like the more I come to like people in general, the more I come to like myself, and vice versa. There's a strong mirror connection there in my case.

      And I tend to go kind of crazy if I deprive myself of such social contact for too long, or just stay in a tightly-knit social group for too long (which is a constant danger for me since I have a very indoorsy job as a software engineer working remotely over the internet). If I don't do that for a while, slowly that kind of dislike of humanity, along with the self-loathing that mirrors it, begins to creep up on me until I head out the house, repair my view of humanity, and fix it (which also starts repairing my view of myself).

  • I do like people. Maybe I am too romantic, but I believe that you should give everyone a chance to show you who he/she is.
    Ultimately I believe that you meet people for a day, people for a time span (e. g. childhood, school, etc) and people for life. It's your choice in which category you put them.

      Personally, I wouldn't give everyone that chance because I'd have to open myself to them as well.
      I really like what you said about it being your choice which category you put them in. That's a great perspective.

    • 12 d ago

      With experience you learn to tell appart people earlier. Sometimes a glance or a single phrase from them is enough to know if you're going to get along or not. So you can avoid opening up yourself to start with.
      I am always cautious to what I share until I learn a person better. Like I have no problem to tell them I had chicken and salad for dinner, but I won't tell them about personal stuff. Especially not things that could be used against me...

  • I like people. I like children more. Children are so precious, innocent. They have not been "damage" sadly... I am seeing more at my job. But at lease, I can give them hugs, knowedge, dreams and hope they will turn out well.
    As for people, I feel many have been so hurt/burned/damaged and walking around with lots in their mind.
    I want to know their stories, who they are, where they come from, where they are going, what their passions. At the end, we are all looking for one thing - Love

  • I half like them and half hate them. Most because of human nature. Some are evil and some are good.

    I prefer humans doing as opposed to humans just being. Love makes the world go round. I think if you took love away from human nature, we would truly be a cancer to this planet.

  • Generally, I don't care about people and what they do. So do I dislike them or like them? it's 50/50 if the person has nothing interesting I'm not going to bother with them and leave. I know it has hurt a lot of people, but it simply doesn't affect me since I can always find someone else to replace them with.

      That's true. But I think sometimes my nature has drawn in the wrong kind of people. And then I have this false belief that I can help them or make them better but it just ends up with more hurt.

      That's great. Have you always been that way?

    • 12 d ago

      It was a bit of a flippant/throwaway answer but backed up with an element of truth. I've always felt massive empathy for friends, family or strangers... It's the reverse psychopath approach where when I have up's and down's I can kinda cope alright.. but on the otherhand when someone whether they are a friend/family member/stranger/someone in a film lol, is upset, then it affects me more than the same thing happening to me lol

  • I can relate to your image. People disappoint, nature and do not. I know I can romance myself better than any man could. I'm not sure men are worth the effort to be honest.

  • No I think most people are petty and overly dramatic. I might dislike good people if I find them annoying but it's more not enjoying interactions rather than the actual person. I always give people the benefit of the doubt though until they prove unworthy. I don't have time for toxic people.

      I didn't feel the need to clarify because GaG gives the selection for a category. Had I wanted it to lean a certain direction, I may have selected a different category. I want to know how most people feel towards people as a whole. Do you mostly like people or do you mostly dislike people?

  • There are very selective people that I like of course.

    But yes, it's awesome when I get to know someone at a way deeper level and not just superficial and those are what I count as my people.

    Have a nice day!!

  • I do. Sometimes I get so naive and think they're good at heart. I give them all a clean slate and so far, some have proven to be pretty good, others simply flawed, and others just vile. People are quite fascinating. Generally seem to be self serving, sometimes manipulative. Must be human nature.

  • I generally have a predisposed cynical attitude to people. That they're either too generic and thus annoying, idiots or plain boring. I have high standards for whom I call friend, that linked with how opinionated I am, (in an assertive/argumentative way, not in a hostile/violent way), makes it hard for most people to get along with me. Especially in this day and age when disagreement is the bane of existence for so many sensitive souls out there. But as a result, the friends I do have are superb, and truly has my back.
