Are you a Cold Soul or Loving Puppy

But would anybody dare to commit to a viewpoint >:D

I dare say you're not going to get a hard and fast viewpoint here. We're skeptics remember? Most of us will give a stranger in a non-threatening situation the benefit of the doubt, but in almost all situations, I would rather not rely on a stranger or even a known person for anything if there is'nt another way around a scenario.

One needs some notion of what "good" might be. You make the assumption that trustworthiness is good. In some views it might be bad, or indifferent. If you think good has something to do with our ability to procreate ( breed, make more of our species, etc. )( not that I necessarily do, mind - I am mostly just confused ), the common lie "I love you ( now stfu and get on the bed, doll )" might be good perhaps?

Do you believe humans are inherently good?

I believe humans sit on a bell-curve in most aspects and there's no reason they can't on this one. Some people are bleeding-heart, some are cold as ice, most are somewhere in between.

E.g. when you meet someone for the first time are you:
a) Careful trying to figure out if he is trustworthy.

Am I trusting them by being in their company, or trusting them by handing them a loaded gun? Different levels of trust for different people, and the more hardcore trust can only be earned. Due to personal experiences though, I'm weary of even the closest of people when it comes to "the big stuff", I've learned the hard way that familiarity can breed MISPLACED trust too.

I am outwardly a cold soul, but I'm butter on the inside. I'm an emotional eclair. (MBTI type: INTJ)

Er, I think you meant “wary” not “weary.” Funny slip, though. ;D

You’re aware of MBTI’s criticisms?

You may have mentioned it before. ;D
