I came up with an idea a while back for a scale that would rate people in terms of good or evil. It's basically a number line from -10 to 10 with -10 being the worst most evil kind of person and +10 being the best kind of person. Here's a quick picture I drew up for it:
Think about the people you know in your life that have purely good intentions. The people who don't have a bad bone in their body. The people that are so nice to others. The best people you know may be a 10. It is very difficult to get to a 10, so only a few people you know will be there if any.
Most people probably fall somewhere between 0 and 10. This the the positive area. If someone falls in this range they are generally a good person. If they are close to 10, they are very good. If they are close to 0, then they are not that good.
The negative numbers are for those who are more bad then good. There definitely are a lot of people that fall into this section. These are the people who are evil, mean, immoral etc.
Once you have thought about people you know, ask yourself where you would fall on the scale. Me personally, I would be somewhere on the positive side, maybe a 7 or an 8. I try to be good but there is room for improvement as I know others who are 10's and I have a ways to go before I would reach that level.
Anyway, this is just a concept I thought I would share with you guys. If you have any comments, leave them below.
