What percentage of people on here do you think are HONEST, HARD WORKING PEOPLE?

by Michael Oksa 62 replies
Hi Warriors,

In a recent thread, somebody asked "What percentage of people on here do you think are LYING?". Talk about a loaded question!

I'm so fed up with people thinking 80%, 90%, 95% or 100% of the people here are being dishonest.

For one thing, if I EVER thought I was somewhere where 80%+ of the people were lying...I WOULD RUN FOR THE DOOR.

So, if so many people think we're crooks, then why do they stay here?

Anyway, let's reverse the tables and ask...

What percentage of Warriors do you think are honest, hard working people?

All the best,
Michael

    10% Maybe. I try to be an optimist.

      I think that the vast majority of people are honest, hard-working people who just want to build a business. It's the vocal minority that is truly dishonest but as with everything in life, human nature tends to magnify the negative.

      I've also found that those complaining about lying marketers are the ones who failed to make the big money they thought they would in a short amount of time. Instead of taking responsibility, it is easier to blame the marketer and say they lied.

      Michael, I honestly have no idea.

      Forget IM.

      I have lived through 52 years in the off line world and I have run into more
      than my fair share of shady characters.

      It's a big planet. There are good and bad people everywhere. What I try to
      do is focus on the good but at the same time realize that I have to be
      careful about who I deal with. Look, just recently a bunch of people who
      had it in for me got my Youtube account closed.

      The world is what it is.

      All we can do is make the best of it.

      Seriously?

      Then, no offense intended, why do you hang out here if you think 90% are lazy liars? Again, nothing personal.

      That's the other part of it I don't get. I'm really trying to wrap my head around why people would count themselves amongs a group of so many people they think are lying.

      Do you seriously think only 10% are honest, or only 10% are hard working, or 10% are BOTH honest AND hard working?

      It would also be interesting to see how many people think THEY are honest.

      Kind of like 87% of drivers believe they are above average, if you follow.

      That being said, I did ask.



      All the best,
      Michael

    Thanks a lot Lisa. What? I don't count anymore?

    Mike, I think most of us are hard working, honest people. I think the problem lies more in the mindset of others.

    Can't you be honest, but not hard working? Or dishonest and hard working?

      Thanks, Curtis, that's a good point.

      Let me change the question to...

      What percentage of Warriors do you think are honest, and/or hard working people?

      That's more of what I'm curious about.

      All the best,

    No, the naive thing would be to say "90% of the people here are liars, but there's no way I'll fall prey to them".

      The few people who I trusted were scammers who resorted to pulling the farce of being successful but with the intention of making money any way possible even if it meant being dishonest with their earnings in order to build a trust with the customer. So far it's 0-4 from the folk I've been following. No names mentioned.
      I've also noticed that even the reputable folk who are releasing step by step guides on earning money actually try to cop-out with the whole "Think outside the box" or "Be creative" rather than actually explain the whole step by step process.

      from my experience, I'd say about 75% of warriors are Honest and genuine people.

      When it comes to hard working, I'd say about 2 or 3 %.

      When I say hard working, I mean working a day job from 7AM to 6PM...having a Number 2 with a Coke on the ride home....coming home and working until 4AM.

      I work full time online and have for the past 5 years. It's 7AM until at least 11PM for me every day. I work 6 days per week taking Tuesdays off every week. I also usually take a "vacation" once a month of about 4 days.

      People come on the internet because they think they can make millions working an hour a week. That's simply not the case. In order to succeed, you must have your head down working 18 hours + per day for at least 18 months.


      well, I think you're being judgemental with your statement because you can work hard for 4 hours and get the same or more accomplished than someone else who takes 12 hours to do the same tasks. Just because people don't work as many hours as you do doesn't mean they are lazy asses.

      I've come to the conclusion that what you focus on is what you draw into your life. If you focus on how bad people are, or how dishonest, etc., you're going to attract that kind of people.

      I would venture a guess that there are way more good, honest, hard-working people here than you think. So with that in mind, I'm voting 85-90% honest people and 60-70% hard-working...
      I'm an eternal optimist...sue me!

    How could anyone possibly know unless you're really a social butterfly and get around a lot. With that many users, each of us actually know (or have read numerous posts by) a small handful of total users, so any percentages are just more made up percentages.

    Some are honest and some are not. It's that simple.

      Hi Suzanne,

      I think that's a fair statement.

      It's also why it bugs me when I see posts that claim "90% of peopleat the Warrior Forum are dishonest."

      It's not only a question of how could they know, but also one of why do they assume the worst? That's not being a realist, that's being cynical. Big difference.

      On the other hand, I don't know either, but to suggest somebody is naive for assuming the best is plain old wrong. The trick is to assume the best, WITH verification. You can trust somebody and do your due diligence at the same time.

      All the best,
      Michael
