I was inspired to make this poll after seeing this question asked in a gramatical sense- I thought it was a great 'philosophical' question too!

Phenomenal poll question. I think most people including myself would or will choose the moral high ground if given the choice without any reverberations. It is when a price has to be paid that our moral fortitude will fall by the wayside. A good question to ask with this poll would be would you be willing to give up your job or career to support a belief or someones rights. I have to admit I would probably have a hard time making this choice. My career was my life and precisely how I judged my value in the past. I suppose the overall answer to your poll can be evidenced by the political turmoil facing the world, the rise in crime rates, and the overall decline of honor within society Now I'm sorry I didn't chose answer #4! Why did I take the red pill?

Most definitely an awesome poll question. Maybe even the best I've come across!

Hmm, I'll answer honestly with 'to do well'. Knowing that doing good is such a burdensome task throughout one's life that 'to do well' is most likely the easier choice. Putting aside the matter that they aren't exclusive at all, one can also consider the fact that if you're doing well you might have more opportunities 'to do good' in your lifetime.

both, is our choice. you have to do well, before doing good. many ppl do not care or they forget the many things you have done good. in many countries, doing well if far better than doing good. but in religious area it is far better to do good.

The politically correct answer is probably to do good. It is more difficult; however, most would like others to think of them as good people by saying it is best strive to do good. Doing well can be considered easier. Neither are wrong. The best we can hope for is that people work honestly no matter what they believe.

To do well and be successful is far more important in my opinion,because if you come into a position where you cann really change something and make things better for everyone then its worth it(ofc doing by legal stuff).I mean look at Roy Mustang,Edward from FMA.Selling your soul to the military to later save the world is not a bad thing.Of course everyone should tend to do the right thing.

The more you do well, the more good you can do. It's not so black and white as to just pick exclusively one or the other.
