Under what conditions may someone believe that they are a good person?

@Elmkast nevermind my extravagant, modern middle class north american lifestyle ;

@Elmkast when they see a bad person. Absent that, (and so the desire to seek or create them) only faith.

@Elmkast That kind of self-image seems to work through social proof. So you see yourself based on how people treat you. But your interpretation of how people treat you is calibrated based on childhood experience.
