You should show deference to anyone, in my opinion just as a polite formality(unless you know they're dicks, then all bets are off). Deference is not the same as respect. To me, respect would require something that is worthy of said respect.

I respect my parents because they gave away a big chunk of their life to nurture me and my brother, and they've made a lot of sacrifices so that we have had it alright. I don't respect people I just meet, or people I don't really know about but I do show deference.

I start off showing everyone some level of respect. I expect more or less the same
What you do determines my continued level of respect for you.

The thing I find most important to understand is that you do not have to respect everyone and not everyone has to respect you. Of course, those are the people I would suggest avoiding, but even then some level of coexistence is required.

And here, have this
Not exactly related, but relevant enough

I feel respect is a two way street, I don't hang out with people who can't respect me in return, however I respect all opinion and the likes, but my circle of friends are small, thus the theory holds.

No one should show anyone disrespect (no matter how bad they are), but at the same time, respect shouldn't be obligatory. Everyone should be neutral towards everyone else until proven otherwise, and if they don't have anything nice to say, they shouldn't say anything - about the person, not about their work or something like that. Work needs impartial criticism.
