Basically anything can have an impact on ones personality. Some of the major ones which cause these changes can be parenting, friends, neighbourhood, heck any little thing can influence a good person to be bad.

In Doom's case he became corrupt with power, but that's w hole different story that one. >_>

maybe we are all bad, and we cover it up. so when a good person goes bad, they just stop covering it up.


i agree because every day when i meet people i have so many bad and mean things in my mind about them but i keep it to myself and try to ignore it

Drugs, alcohol, or frustration can make a person go bad, but usually they don't.

i can teach u how to be bad... heheh >;D

...

...okay, seriously tho- i think environment is to blame. that person doesn't become bad on their own, i think it might be a thing where they have some sort of pressure to act that way. like a friend, parent (i mean like if their parents hav issues, the child/adult feels all messed up and things go bad), peer... et al. i don't think that person is ever to blame for making mistakes, but it is their fault if they continue to be that way. but i don't think it is always a choice or an instant decision or impulse; i think it's a result of what happens in your environment.

...did ya get all that?

Question fails. Nobody all of a sudden turns "bad". Good and evil are a matter of perception, what may appear as bad in our eyes may seem like the right path for said person. If one does something for the purpose of being "bad" then they are just a fucking poser.

well, for one its the teaching from your parents, teachers stuff... Second is your surroundings... when u're surrounding's behaviour changes toward u... u would have to either adapt to it... or change to fight that behaviour... 9 out of 10 times people would try to adapt to it without changing themselves and it works... but sometimes... people just hate getting use to the strange vibe in the environment... and even the best person in the world would become a total ass just to take revenge on people who created the strange vibe around them...

Abit deep this one........

Its a vast question but basically all the terrible people in the world never started out that way, so what turns a good person into a bad one ???

A few ideas that spring to mind are, bad parenting, a bad life experience or its just all in the DNA !!!

Let me know your thoughts.


First,

Depends on how an individual (you) or society defines and perceives the word "bad" and "good",

"Bad" can be anything, so is "Good". For example: If I was a gangster and you were a part of my gang, and I wanted you to go kill a child because he stole my stash of narcotics, you would have to do it so you'll be "good" in my view and the gang's, if you don't then you would be "bad". If I we were fighting for terrorist group, we would think we're "good" and whoever is the opposition is "bad" .....but at the same time we're killing people...so would we be good?

People perceived actions differently and label them, a typical human being's thought process is pretty quick, the human brain makes a judgment immediately (the person is a "human" being with feelings), then changes occurs (it's when you get the chance to say "I won't judge" or "this guy's a douche bag")...so a person can't really say they "don't judge people at all" your brain has already have.

What you may think is "good" could actually be "bad" in another person's view.

The universal saying is "no child is born evil";

The real sense is what happens to them after birth, usually childhood, is usually what determines the child's personality (although, drug/mental/handicap problems are factor(s)). The learning process of a child can being as early as the ages of 2-5. That period is very crucial for what is ahead (proof is found in neglected children in the early stages of life) in their lives.

It's hard for people to blame a person's behavior on certain things in their childhood because it's usually a combination of certain negative events or situations (family roles play a major part here) or simply actions the person took in a part of their life (such as religion, hobbies and joining groups that interact with others: KKK, Presidents Club, Boy Scouts....ect). However, most scientist, they can all agree it's the childhood-juvenile period that has some sort of major blame.

When you referred to DNA (I also suppose gene's), you're going into some stuff that has been proven wrong already. A person cannot be evil because his father and mother was evil, but as I see it...it's more of a religious idea (My father was the devil...my mother was an angel....and now I'm Jin Kazama XD). If I was Bonnie and Clyde's damnation child: would I inherit their luck in stealing and robbing banks.... logically NO.....physical features and health problems: yes.

A terrible person? Define that for me.
Your idea of a terrible person can be biased because of your culture or anything.
One persons villain is another persons hero and vise versa.
I think that giving people titles like good and evil is silly.


Yes
