Is it good to nice to nice people and cruel to cruel people?

Yes. That's what I do. I feel like people should get what they give. It's karma.

Your question is a bit confusing but have you ever heard the phrase "kill them with kindness"? Of course, be nice to nice people but be extra nice to mean people. It will also show them that they being a meanie doesn't affect you and makes you look like the more mature person. You could take it an extra step and ask them if something happened in their life to make them cruel and you'd like to help them by listening (warning though, they may be like "F U". )

Personally I don't think it could be considered a good action to treat people cruelly, even if you think they deserve it. There's a lot of grey between "nice" and "cruel" people and a lot of context we don't know when we place people into these categories. I think you can still act with kindness while sticking up for yourself and others. plus when you treat cruel people cruelly, not only will they then see you as a cruel person and create that cycle, but you don't allow them room to redeem themselves and grow

No. What you view as cruel, could be someone with a problem, health issue,
or something else. A few kind words could make a difference for them, but
being cruel will only make their problems worse.

Of course it's nice to be nice to everyone. The problem occurs when you are nice to cruel people and it just gives them a chance to treat you poorly. The easiest action is be kind to everyone and avoid those that turn it against you.

Its complimentary to be nice to nice people , but rather pointless to be cruel to cruel people. Being cruel only make you as bad or worse than they are, so how then can you object to their behaviour. Criticise them by all means for their behavious and certainly hope to change the bastards , but to do the same your self is bordering on the insane.

If you're cruel to cruel people, and they're cruel to you because you're cruel to them, you create an endless cycle of cruelty.

Treat everyone the way you'd like to be treated.
