Imagine this scenario: you have to move into a house with seven other people who you've never met before and you must live with them and share everything with them and put up with them blah. And you're given a choice. You can either move to a lovely and brilliantly furnished house that is wonderful in every way imaginable or you can move to a small, somewhat cramped house with a very bland interior and nothing particularly nice about it. However you are also told that in the nicer house, the people aren't as kind or as friendly as they are in the worse house - in fact, they're opposites to each other. Which do you pick?

Basically, nice house and bad people or bad house and good people?

I'd choose the nice house with the crappy people, most definitely. I think even if the nicest people were put together in a crappy cramped house, they'd grate on each other far more easily while sharing their misery. In the nice big house at least if you hate the people it's easier to get space from them.

I'd choose the small house with the nice people. I don't take up a ton of space, and I'd rather be in bad conditions with friends than in good conditions with enemies. Plus, it could be kind of fun? (renovating or doing whatever we could to make the crappy house nicer) And plus, as a group we'd probably get to be really good friends, actually, so that's way better than having a bit more space. :D

    Bad house, nice people.

    I've been in a large house with "bad people." Trust me, the tension goes through the walls.

    Well, it depends on the definition of bad, actually. If you mean bad as in a couple of drunks who go crazy a lot, I don't think I'd mind living in the nice house. I've dealt with drunks before. If they're sober *******s, then I'll pick the crap house. At the very least the people make up for it's condition. Sort of.
    he did it, not me.

    I'm a very internal person so I think I can survive living with people I don't get along with. I do that as it is, anyway. I keep my distance from them and I would do the same if that situation were to happen in the house. I have music, headphones, and an iPod that I can fully take advantage of, a chest with a lock to protect stuff I don't want them to have, and plenty of friends who would be able to talk to me if I were to find it not very bearable after all. I choose the house.

    I have had the worst of both scenarios before and I can say for certain that I would rather have good people. I'm not a people person, but bad people can really make me flip my pancake. They don't respect your personal space, they use and ruin your things, and generally make your life awful.

    I mean, I would like to say "Oh, if I have bad people around I'll just ignore them," but I'm assuming for this question they're bad enough that you can't just ignore them.

      I'd choose the nice place, at the very least I can seclude myself within my room and xbox so I won't have to interact with the others living there very often.

        I'd take the Crampy old flat so I could be on my own with my little girl without people bursting in on us.

          Most definitely the nice house, I could just stay in my room except when I needed to eat or something. I would also make sure and get a lock on my door dont want poeple in there while I'm gone.
          With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds, and open wide to suck it in; I feel it move across my skin.
          I'm reaching up and reaching out; I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been. We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been. Spiral out and keep going.

          Awesome house, awful people.

          Id prefer comfort any day, also I could enjoy myself going up against the awful people, at least everyone wouldnt always be loving life and super duper happy about everything, thatd just get boring.

          Smaller house. If I'm going to be living with a million other people, I want it to be people I can stand. Also, I'm already used to not living someplace fancy. Even if it's a step down from where I live now, I'd rather have good roommates.

          tbh though this sounds like waaaay too many people to live with for my tastes. ;____;
          If you're looking for me,
          I'm hiding on Reddit or Twitter.

            Large house. I'm not out to be friendly or kind myself, really just to mind my own business and not pay others much mind. Assuming they're like that too and not actually violent or the like, that'd probably be better once I get comfortable with new people being in my living space at all. I assume also that with the larger house being... well, larger, that I would have a room to myself, which I find to be more necessary than anything else concerned with here.

              Obviously it depends on how bad the people are versus how bad the house is. If I can't sleep because the people are always loud, then I couldn't handle that. If the people are messy and gross then what is the point of a nice house anyways if they are gonna mess it up? So I would go with having the bad house.
              But if the bad house is very unsanitary? Cockroaches? No thanks. Or mould in the walls? No. My breathing is sensitive and I couldn't handle that, so i would take the better house.

              It is very conditional.

                This is actually a hard question for me to answer, considering I'm claustrophobic and being cramped isn't really my kind of style, but I'd prefer the smaller house. I can definitely say that reading most of these posts have shifted my decision to that. >>

                I was initially going to go for the larger house, because I was thinking that the "bad" people were more or less just annoying people that can be easily ignored as long as I have my personal space and whatnot, but reading Scarf's post really had me re-think things, so yeah, I'm definitely staying with people I can stand, albeit I hope none of them are as claustrophobic as I am cause holy crap that is cramped lmao.

                edit: After reading Kura's post, I've decided to shift my focus to say that it's really conditional, too. There are just so many things to consider here, that I actually can't make a solid decision on this anymore. xD

                I'd rather the nice house with bad people. You can always socialise with people outside the house and you won't be around them most of the day if you don't like the people, so just bare with it for the times you are with them and enjoy the nice comfy house that you're in :p

                I'm a pretty reserved guy, so I think I'd take the nice house with the not-so nice people. But I also had the same thoughts as Kura before reading through the entire thread. It would entirely depend on what type of bad the people were. If they were just rude or easily got on your nerves I could deal with it, but if they were doing illegal activities, completely confrontational people or lived like absolute pigs, I'd rather live in the small house, even if I was a little uncomfortable to start off.

                Nice house with crappy people. I can become a shut-in and not allow them in my room where I have wild, out-of-control parties with fun, tolerable people. I can garner all of the accommodations I feel are necessary to make my living space my living space and create a fantasy in which my room is my house. Besides, it'll probably be a fairly large room given the description of the house, yeah?

                  It depends. I could not live with people getting drunk and partying all night and messing up my stuff and leaving food everywhere, but if they were just people that aren't 'social people' I could. I'd love to live in a house with lots of nice people, but if it had mouldy ceilings and bugs everywhere, i wouldn't. It all comes down to the details.
