We may think of some people as good but others may not.
The oxymoron in this thought contains a question: Is the person really good or bad?
The answer to this can be given only with the perspective of Anekant.
A person may have good qualities as well as weaknesses.
We may find the quality we value in a certain person and therefore we may think he is good.
Another person may not find the quality he values in the said person and so may not think of him as a good person.

To be good or bad are relative terms.
So neither of the thoughts we begun with are false.
