As Stormie said.
Much like everything else, I think being a "bad person" is relative to each individual's definition of what "bad" is. I've always tried to follow the Golden Rule -- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. (or something like that ) It's tough, but I think I've basically adhered to it my whole life...so far. However, as JediMac confessed, I too have become more and more pessimistic and mistrustful of others...basically as a defense mechanism to what others have done to me. This makes following the Golden Rule all the more difficult. Now, instead of being very outgoing and friendly, I'm more apt to just be quiet and reserved; waiting for others to show friendliness first. This is something I know I have to work on (admitting you have a problem is the first step...).
It is all true to myself as well.
Now for my results... I do not agree with them. Like many of you I thought I was a better person. According to this test I am one bad person.
On the good side it is Lucky #7! Seventh Level of HellGuarded by the Minotaur, who snarls in fury, and encircled within the river Phlegethon, filled with boiling blood, is the Seventh Level of Hell. The violent, the assasins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment. The stench here is overpowering. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides- stunted and gnarled trees with twisting branches and poisoned fruit. At the time of final judgement, their bodies will hang from their branches. In those branches the Harpies, foul birdlike creatures with human faces, make their nests. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation, and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level.
As for the other level listings... wow I am a bad person.

Raised as a Catholic trying to do well in life, I have always put others before myself which has done some harm to my well being. I am just stubborn when it comes to me. I would rather help out others in life before I take care and help myself.
In my life I have been all the way to the top down to the bottom and back. I have learned from my mistakes to make life better. I have succeeded more times that I thought I could and failed more times than I can remember. It is life. Not too long ago in my life things were not looking good for me and I had a serious self reflection time. I was heading down the wrong path and I was builiding walls up all around me. There were things in my life that I had to come to realize and deal with instead of trying to be something that I was not. I hurt many people who were close to me and for that I have said I am sorry more times than I can remeber. Due to my fall in life I have lost many friends who I know will never forgive me. I have accepted that they are now no longer part of my life. I have torn down the walls that I have built up. It is sad that many of those walls still haunt me from time to time. No one is perfect we all fail from time to time.
I have moved on with my life and have accepted who, what, type of person I am. I hate labels of any kind for a person. We are all human of all types. Though I was raised a Catholic I do not believe that any religion in the world is totally correct. They all have their Pros and Cons. I feel that if you are just good to your fellow person and just live life and be there for others that makes you a good person. The definition of "bad" is what you personally make of it. If the world does not want to accept me for who I am. Then I have learned to say "F-It
" and go on with my life. You cannot please everyone.
Wow. Self Reflection... try not to dwell on it to much. It will only make you feel worse than things really are. Everyone here is A GOOD PERSON
. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
Now Group Hug!
Well if anyone is going to be joining me in the 7th Level of Hell I have the drinks (the good kind)!
