So, what is your general view of the population? The people of course, not the world as a whole.

Do you feel any camaraderie with the population? Do you view them as generally good with bad apples or generally bad with good apples?

When someone walks up to you and starts making small talk, do you feel happy? Do you enjoy a nice chat with someone new? Do you get annoyed and make any excuse to leave? Do you feel uncomfortable and rather avoid people?

I myself, like to think everyone is good, but people have done bad things to me, so of course not everyone is good, but for the most part, I typically like(and eventually love) everyone that spends lots of time around me.

As a whole, I view the population as generally bad, but not intentionally so, many people have different types of beliefs/religion/ideals that turns them corrupt and with a guilty mind. That's me, most people try to be good but the clubs they join do the exact opposite and puts different shades over their eyes to see things in a distorted way.

That, is called social engineering, or social pressure, or social "mold". If you can break a person out of it and get them back down to earth and have them act like no one is watching(society) than you can see that most people have good intentions. But for the most part, I find people dishonest and dark tinted.

What about you? What do you think about "most" people? The generally population of the world?

I think it's human nature to be Self centered and manipulative to the detriment of it's species' own survival.
This keeps the numbers down but the constant quest for technology makes the doomsday clock a very real thing.

I guess I would say people are bad but are mostly bad to each other.

I think people are just people. Just a mindless swarm -- annoying and loud.

Persons, on the other hand, can be a lot more interesting.

I do think most people are well meaning and yes many are manipulated and deceived. There is no better way to detect this deception and manipulation than to have been a manipulator yourself. Often times you don't even realize you are doing it but I have managed to notice and am now devoted to honesty.

Tons of NPCs

just a sht ton of pretentious people. i understand it's important for people to act differently so they don't stand out from their peer group or society... and are able to fit in.
but argh, i really wish people would give up the facade, it makes me feel so uncomfortable.

that's why i'm really drawn to eccentric personality type people--they are more likely to act like their true nature without giving any single fcks. i can't stand pretentious people/sheep.

No, I didn't. What happened was that someone just proposed to me for the reason in the opening post.

Too many people. We are the only species that seems unable to regulate our numbers. Because of this we are literally running out of space and are choking out other organisms.

I often think myself into oblivion over this exact matter! I feel that there are too many variables to consider when it comes to one's behavior. Above all, I think that intention is key to determining if someone's actions are "good" or "bad." But for the overall populace, i want to believe that everyone's good but makes mistakes along the way. I can't really consider someones tendency for good or bad things until they are like 25+ because everyone is really figuring shit out up until that point. Who knows though. Like I said, too many variables.

when 2012 rolled by with no signs of the apocalypse I felt just a little disappointed, not that i really thought anything would happen.
but hey i still might see the end of the world. with the last of the oil gone in the next 20 to 50 years you know people are gonna fight over the last drops and maybe someone presses a button, then everyone is charcoal. global population is like 7 billion? predicted to cap off at twelve billion. so my opinion on the population is there needs to be less of one.

That everyone has their own little story that you can't always blame on them even when it ends up making them a little bit rude or something. As long as they don't threaten me physically or mentally, I' will just humble myself as a human that can't comprehend everything and everyone.
