    I think a good man (person) is one that can look inside themselves and HONESTLY appraise their sense of self. They can see and accept their faults, and work towards bettering themselves. They accept those faults and work towards ensuring that mistakes once made are not made again. They can see and promote their positive traits not by bragging or self promotion inasmuch as knowing oneself to the point that those positive traits show from their inside world to their outside world. In other words I suppose it is to be authentic, but to know oneself as part of being that way.

    All other values will shine through as a result. "Good" in any case is very subjective - some qualities or values will attract and some will repel. There is no single panacea for the "good man".

    A good man does not exist. It's just an ideal.

    The closest thing would be a detachment from ego or a strong sense of self. It sounds sad but it is the truth and in that fact, it is not sad at all.

    To be able to look out and not look in. That's the only road you can walk if what you truly seek is selflessness.

    Detachment from ego. Detachment from vessel. Pure detachment. That is light. Struggling to seek identity is darkness.

    Exactly. Just like dwelling on, what is "Good".

    'Struggling to seek identity is darkness'.

    Why do you think that? Are you very sure that you're not just parotting some pseudo-Buddhist received wisdom?

    I think @Siku is simply trying to tell us that narcissism is fake and gay.

    I agree

    A man is someone who selflessly provides, protects and prepares his family. He prepares his children to enter the world and form their own individuality, so they to can weather the storm of darkness. He does this in Love and shows them they have the ability. He protects his wife and understands she is part of his strength. He will go into the world bravely and contribute to society for the greater good. In juxtaposition he will destroy anything that will negatively interfere with this process. He will have the wisdom to know when to fight and when to be peaceful. He will laugh and lead by example.

    Or

    Someone who has the ability to procreate with a woman.
