I've already answered this. Edit: I'll expand, since the first one apparently didn't take: I think the inherent qualities in a good person would be a lack of cynicism, perhaps a good sense of humor and irony, an affection for other people. This goodness can be manifest in their actions, but I think it's displayed more in their motivations. But even the best people are capable of doing bad things, sometimes for good reasons and sometimes for really bad reasons. Just as bad people--those who are humorless, cynical, mean-spirited--can do good things, such as act charitably, display kindness, etc.. No one is wholly one thing or the other. Some people can begin their lives as good people and become very bad people, and vice versa.
