Sep 19 2011: I have decided to start evaluating people on a simple kindergarten scale of "nice" to "mean". Cuts through the red tape. ←Start tweet essay: Nice vs. Mean
Sep 19 2011: Mean people can pretend to be nice, but it doesn't hold up in the long run. Their meanness eventually shows through.
Sep 19 2011: Nice people couldn't be mean if they tried.
Sep 19 2011: Mean people always have an excuse, and nice people are often making excuses for them. That's one flaw of nice people.
Sep 19 2011: Nice people you can speak freely to without fear of retribution. Mean people you have to tiptoe around so you don't set them off.
Sep 19 2011: Mean people do mean things to avoid dealing with their own flaws and weaknesses.
Sep 19 2011: Nice people can do mean things during little bouts of paranoia, but it usually passes quickly and they deeply regret it.
Sep 19 2011: The main disease of nice people is an overactive conscience that makes them accept blame for things that aren't their responsibility.
Sep 19 2011: Nice people may become too focused on making people happy in the present without grasping the complex requirements of long-term niceness.
Sep 19 2011: Mean people are chronically paranoid. They see threats where they don't exist, which helps justify their meanness.
Sep 19 2011: Nice people are often the enablers of mean people, helping them to avoid responsibility for their meanness.
Sep 19 2011: The best way to deal with a mean person is to minimize your contact with them. Get away if you can!
Sep 19 2011: Mean people will steal your lunch money and tease you on the bus. Nice people make you feel comfortable and included.
Sep 19 2011: The easy way to tell a nice person from a mean one is how you feel after you have interacted with them.
