See-sawing between deep, introspective questions and funny cat videos seems to be a good trend, so here's another introspective question for you (the kind you really need to be asking over a beer, 'cause that's where it started):
Do you assume people will be good and then give them "demerits" for things like, dishonesty, untrustworthiness, pettiness, unkindness, etc.
Do you assume people will be bad and then give them "credit" for kindness, thoughtfulness, honesty, unselfishness, etc.
Generally, I fall more into the latter category, though my starting point is usually midrange. I expect people to be human (which is to say, good in general, but self-serving when the chips are down -- which is neither good or bad, just is), and then they get credits or demerits for extraordinary kindness or unkindness from there.
How about you? Are people black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes?
