Notice no one is answering the "are you only nice to people you agree with" question.

I've been told I'm nice for the most part, but I can come off as a dick.

I think I'm overall really nice. Even if we don't agree on certain things. If I'm being an ass, I'm probably joking around lmao.

Well, like I said, when someone brings up a conversation - I'll add input into it. I've got into the political discussions in person a few times. I'll offer to show evidence, cite sources, show data, and the likes. So far, most of those who have got into conversations with me (in person) about politics lately have walked away without being angry or enraged. A few have become like-minded over the last month, so I can't say that they're still people who disagree with me (regarding some political things).

When I worked as a theoretical mathematician for a think tank in D.C., I spent most of my time in a room with a team that all disagreed with one another. If you think the political discussions on Crunchyroll can get heated, you should really go into a thinktank's office for a day or two. In those situations, I normally just stuck to my desk and worked on various formulas that everyone else fought over. The interesting thing from my experience was that (in many situations) they were all right in some context or another, just was looking at the problem with their own perspective (which has strengths and weaknesses). Together, they had pretty solid theories if you ignored that element of it. I tend to think the same about politics and religion. There's no "wrong" or "right" - just that there are various measures of objectively correct ("everything has some truth in it").

I'm extremely introverted in real life. I'll be polite if you talk to me, but I most likely won't start the conversation.

Depends. I'm very nice and polite to everyone and don't like being mean, unless the other person just totally doesn't act right. Among friends is a different story and we can be total asses to each other, but it's more of a sign of being close. It's never anything that gets personal or is just straight up rude, though.

On the internet everyone is 10 feet tall and bulletproof and talk to other people accordingly. But in real life it's a different story. Are you a dick in real life too or are do you switch the style up? Are you just nice in general both on the internet and irl? Are you just nice to people that agree with you? How do you treat people in general?


I have zero patience for stupidity. We live in a world where pretty much everybody has the internet in their pocket all day, every day. There is simply no excuse for being stupid unless you like being stupid and are doing it on purpose.

Similarly, we live in a world where how to be strong is a solved problem. When people complain that they are afraid when they walk out their door and down the street, there is no good reason for that. We know how to build muscle, and how to teach self-defence, and how to instill situational awareness. Anyone who doesn't do those things likes being weak and is doing it on purpose.

And I have nothing but contempt for anyone who is weak and stupid on purpose because they like it. In person or otherwise.

I treat all people with respect on meeting them. If they don't return that respect then yes or worse, totally disrespect me or those I'm close to then I will stop treating them with that respect. It takes a lot for me to treat someone with hostility but a few have reached that boiling point over the years.

I can be a dick when teasing/joking with co-workers and friends. But I only do that with people who know it's just friendly banter.

Eh. Somewhere in between. I'm a recluse that only leaves the house to go to work, really. At my office I'm known as 'the person that hates people' (legitimately how I've been introduced). I'm been made well aware of my cynical comments and my social aloofness (among my various quirks) although it's partially a facade I use to cover for my social deficits and anxiety.

So, it depends if one finds people that show limited interest in what you have to say or do as being a dick. I'm rather blunt about it as well. I just can't be bothered with it.

By most people's standards I would say I am. I come off coldly--someone people often sneer about away from view (either for my unpleasantness or awkward demeanor). I have received many criticisms about my lack of friendly social behavior and general unwelcoming presence. I come across disrespectfully.

I don't actually intend to hurt or harm others though--but does it matter if it were intended or not? I make what rectifications I can. I am polite, but socially offensive in my distance (visible dismissal or disinterest). I prioritize things over people--and people do not take well to that. I offer people less of my attention and interest than what is considered respectful--aka. I come across as a dick to most people.

I come across more pleasantly towards those where a topic of interest is shared (like video games, human behavior, etc). People also seem to enjoy my advice for their problems.

I try to be friendly but am too socially awkward to appear as such.
I don't feel I have much to share in common with others, and I feel I give people the impression that I don't like them.
The only time this is different is when at a work atmosphere or with friends. Either of those and I'm relatively outgoing and have something to say.

Generally, though, no. Unless you count making terrible dad jokes and pseudo-trolling people as being a dick.
