was wondering

In addition to Jasmine's and Johan's questions. What ultimately makes one a good person?

Dear miles,
And how long is a piece of string ? GOod for what ? What sort of good ? What makes a good rugby player is somewhat diferent from what makes a good parent. Doesn't it need a number of elements, such as a balance between caring about others and respecting oneself too ( not being selfish, not being a good slave ). ? Doesn't it mean taking into account in making major decisions the larger good, of others as well as oneself ? Treating other people's feelings as important, though not as if they were the only important thing to take into account ? being kind towards others AND towards oneself ?

Thats a very open ended question. There are many elements which play a role in this. The way I see this, a good person is good from within. It does not matter what their dress sense or taste buds say or where they may reside. A good person is usually an altruist who put others' needs above their own. Somebody who cares and is understanding - free from judging others' mistakes - supportive and treats others just how they would want to be treated. Someone who listens to that inner little voice and is happy with their concience and has moral fibre.
