I'm pretty bad at judging people.. those that look cold and distant to me sometimes turn out to be hilarious, fun loving folks, while some that look open and friendly turn out to be awful.

That's why I try to ignore looks and listen to their words these days. The first few sentences that someone says will say a lot about them to me.

The tone of their voice... gentle, warm and caring.

Taking the time to learn my name. and not calling me, "That man"... personally find it rude when I told someone my name and they refer to me as "that man"... (talking about real life, not online) I don't get offended online since I haven't told anybody my name.

I DON"T know why I find it so important, but it's like a sign that you're interested... but like something so simple, yet a lot of people seem to overlook.

Genuine facial expressions, it is easy for me to tell when someone is being fake.

"Did they pull out a knife on me or tell me about their growing drug addiction? No. Well this person must be nice" is my usual way of doing it.

It's hard to describe. "Small talk" I guess?

Most people only approach me if they want something or to ask me for information. If someone approaches me and doesn't do either of those things, I generally consider them a nice person. That's not to say that those who ask me for stuff aren't nice - but usually they forget I exist after I answer them or help them so I don't really know.

Also, i'm kind of a standoffish person, which I know comes across as rude to most people, so if someone approaches me at all i'm more inclined to consider them a nice person just for having done so.

I see if the person has a good sense of humor and knows how to relax a bit, someone who isn't so stuck up and serious all the time.

Get in my trunk.


How much blood they're dripping on my carpet really effects what I think of them.

If they say hello with a "real" smile I take that as a good sign.

I don't believe in first impressions, so there isn't really any determining characteristic I use to determine how nice someone is during a first encounter. I assume pretty much everyone is a murderous scumbag until I know them better. My benefit of the doubt does not stretch over the full 100% degree of trust.

Knowing that smiles can hide sinister intent and that anger can often be caused by heated passions are two things to keep in mind.
