Do bad people exist? Or are they just good people making mistakes? – Quora
Based on my life experience, including introspection and observations of others, and my readings in Psychology, Economics, History, Biology, and Neuroscience, I’d say this is what exists:
1. People who have a mixture of selfless and selfish drives, who sometimes give into the latter. Example: a husband who loves his wife but who gives into an impulse (or a series of impulses) and cheats on her.
My Comments: These are some really good insights from Quora contributors on whether or not bad people exist. I for one believe that there are people whose nature (beyond pathology) it is to do bad things – so by extension – yes, there are bad people in this world and that the world could certainly do without!
