    Respect?

    Just throwing a question out there and am curious to how people on here will answer.

    Is respect a given for all people or does it have to be earned?

    I'd be interested to read the reasons behind your answer too.

    Great question...

    It will be confuddled by there being two definitions.
    NOUN-Respect


    • a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements:
      "the director had a lot of respect for Douglas as an actor"
    • due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others:
      "young people's lack of respect for their parents"


      The first one has to be earned. The second one should be a given, and is probably the basis of a post enlightenment definition of human rights I guess. I try to give respect to everyone regardless of any prejudicial view I have of them. Even say, if I knew they played golf. this is definition 2 But if they were crap at golf, I would have no respect for them as a golfer. definition 1.

      Maybe golf and philosophy dont mix.

    I treat everyone with respect. It's theirs until they do something to ruin it.

    Some people dont even respect themselves. Personally i give equal respect to everyone except my parents who get a bit more respect than everyone else.

    I treat strangers with respect until they do something or say something that makes me think otherwise. People I know are given the level of respect I feel they deserve.

    Respect is a two-way street. You can't get it if you don't give it.

    Respect from me is normally reserved to those I find are kind, truthful and honest. Unfortunately there is so much deceit and dishonesty around and from mainly those in positions of authority who are prone to cover up and denial.

    That's how I see it. I treat people with the respect that I expect in return.

    Intetesting reply HB. I'd always thought that there were different views as to what people mean by "respect" but never considered it was due to semantics. FWIW I've always considered respect to be like trust in that it's a given until you do something to lose it. Once it's gone it's very difficult to win back.

    Are there different levels of respect or does respect morph into something else depending on how much you give or withhold?

    I respectively disagree. There are many situations where respect isn't mutual.

    Referring to HB's reply, which of the 2 definitions he posted do you mean with "respect"?

    My definition of respect for an individual/group/companies/authorities would be for me personally to display or have a heightened extra sensory awareness of treating them in a manner I would not neccesary display otherwise. There are obvious behavioral signs of respect and non-respect examples being the way one communicates or physical/mental reactions.

    There are many different strands to what seems a simplistic question.

    Trust, Truth, Kindness, Compassion, Honesty Empathy, Bravery, Equality and Fairness are some of the key elements for individuals/groups/companies/authorities to possess and display before I would normally give them due respect.

    I wouldn't necessarily give due respect to an individual/group/companies/authorities just because of their profession or job. In fact my learned experience is to have a starting point of distrust of authorities whom are prone to starting points of cover up/deceit/denial.

    As to respecting an individual, like many people I will be perfectly polite and trust them to a point but it would take time and finding out if the individual was worthy of a deeper respect.

    A good question. Makes one explore their thought process.

    I respect you as a human being on a basic level as I do not know you. Once I know you and know about you that respect may grow to a level where I respect your opinion on a particular subject or achievement. I have the utmost respect for many people and value their opinion where as others I don't.

    Define "crap". 😉

    I don't think I can improve upon your definitions.

    I hope I respect everyone's basic human rights, but I hold utter contempt for racists, bigots, holocost deniers, bullies and Donald Trump.

    However, unless they were in the act of being racist etc, I would ignore them rather than be deliberately disrespectful.

    Finally, and to coin a phrase, I can't think of anyone who I wouldn't pish on if they were on fire.
