Why Are We Different?

What makes different peoples personalities different?

Why are different peoples appearances different?

Why are different peoples personalities different?


this question is not mainly directed to what the differences are but why exactly they exist


for example why is someone angry all the time while others are calm and passive?


it is clear what personality traits they have but why?

i would say it would depend on who you are, your justification of what is right or wrong. what makes a hero different from a villian

i think that the difination of what is right and what is wrong depends on each person specifically, soceity does effect what we think is good and bad, and we base our morals on what society thinks, therefore, i do think that soceity effects out thoughts on what is right and what is wrong

It all depends on your morales. The problem is, morales vary from person to person. Take Batman and Joker (I know, nerdy example). Joker thinks that he is truly good because he is showing people for who they truly are, he just knows too much. Batman thinks he is good because he is protecting these people from harm. Is he truly protecting them though? Joker just wants everyone to know the truth, but if we all knew too much, there would be anarchy as we would lose all faith in things that we take as facts.

I think it depends on what you think is good and evil. I think it also depends on what society labels good and evil

i think it is easier for society to point out something that is "evil",compared to something "good". I mean, look at it this way, great minds of the past only become great once they are dead (usually), but a someone who does "wrong" according to society is cast off or even killed in their lifetime. so, maybe it is not impotant what they are but rather how society views them and how society manipulates their meanings to benefit from it.

Evil and good are often easily described by those who view the acts. Sometimes, if you were to ask a "villain" why they did what he/she did, they might often reply with a valid response. Whether you trust them or not is a different topic altogether, but my point is that some things that may be seen as good might be evil in another person's eyes.

I believe good and evil cannot exist without the other. I think that in order for things to be considered good, or evil that they must be in the presence of each other at one point. To perceive what we think is good, and what we think is evil, we have to experience some of both in our lives, so that we can divide the two. After this has been accomplished, it is up to us to determine if something is considered good, or evil or not, because an evil will always be seen as good to someone else, while a good will always be seen as evil to someone else.

Well, like we talked about in class today, Kant believed that our "jugs" had different sizes and shapes, these jugs are what define our perception of the world and I believe that perception of the world greatly influences what we call our "personalities".
