A bad person is someone that consistantly and deliberately acts to their own end without care, concern, or respect for those around them. :evil:

If you want a brutally honest answer, I've got one.

So, this graph will represent what a population views as good. The center of the bell, denoted as the Greek letter Mu, will indicate that the population views the action performed as 'good'. One standard deviation is considered normal for our purposes, but this also means that 68.2% of individuals perform inherently 'good' activities, and the population will label that person as 'good'. The further away from the center an action ranks, the more inherently 'bad' that action is. So we have to note that roughly 27.2% of a population (13.6% X 2), performs inherently neutral or frowned-upon actions, depending on distance from the center at which the action is scored. A society would label these people normal, neutral, or without a label generally, although special cases arise. The outer 4.3% of the bell would denote, 3 standard deviations from 'good', that the performed action will be perceived as 'bad' and thus the population would label the individual a 'bad person'.

As you can see, from the definitions we've applied to the above graph, a 'bad person' is merely a deviation from a 'normality' which invokes a label from the population which the deviation occurred therein. Of course, the action from which the graph applies to is subjective, and will apply different standards under examination of different actions, and will effect differently on the individual dependently upon the societal, religious and personal views of the scrutinizing population.

Hopefully this clears some things up. I can clarify if necessary.

Your post was interesting, but

that is what his thread is about specifically.

The inability to apply specificity to the subject is the reason I had to generalize so much of my response. Frankly speaking, it's only possible for an individual to speak for and make assumptions about culture's they personally experienced. If you're asking me to specifically state what makes someone a bad person, I can do so for North America, the country from which I hail, because I've had experience living in the United States, and Canada. I can't, however, specify to you what might make someone a bad person in Georgia (Europe), for example, because I've not made the personal experience in their culture to note it. It'd be inaccurate to make the statement, as well, simply from reading about the area and it's culture. The attributes which make a bad person are also unique to every individual, though some groups have a motif, if you will, as to those standards. This uniqueness amongst individuals in the separate populations, though, make applying specificity even harder. So, we have to use that bell curve again, apply different definitions, and take note of what the population's majority think of the matter and use that. We also have to consider the large number of differing cultures and societies with differing views on the matter, in which every single point-of-view cannot be taken into account, so we cannot speak for everyone in naming attributes which make a person 'bad' simply on our own.

Digressing, I guess the real fact is you can't actually put a finger on what makes someone a bad person.

What makes someone a bad person is someone who conflicts your own code of ethics or morals.
