Be honest with yourself.

Golden Rule: Treat others as you want them to treat you. (Treat everyone with kindness, regardless of how they act)

Silver Rule: Don't treat others the way you don't want them to treat you. ("Turn the other cheek")

Bronze Rule: Treat others the way they treat you. (Treat kindness with kindness, evil with justice)

Iron Rule: Treat others before they treat you. (Do what you will, without consideration of the outcome)

Tin Rule: Treat your superiors and equals with respect, and your inferiors with contempt. (Everyone has his station in life; act accordingly)

Which rule governs your behavior most of the time? I confess I deal mostly in the Tin Rule, where superiors equals family and friends.

Dirt Rule: Remember, you are dirt - all others are to be treated far better than you.

Depends on one's personal definition of "justice", I suppose.

Melliferal -

Man thats a hard one. I think I have lived mostly by the Hippocratic Oath when it comes to others "First, do not harm" and a variation on that rule for myself - "You can only do harm".

So I think I am just plain screwed!

I get the feeling many of us can lay claim to several of those metals, maybe even without realizing it.

I think we might be able to make that a "polished" metal.

For me it would be Polished Bronze, I suppose.

I would say the silver rule as it is the closest thing to civility, which is the way I treat people.
