Do you want to be a “Nice Person or Mr Nice?”

Would you want somebody to describe you as a nice person? Most likely.

But do you know that in the 14th century, according to Dictionary.com, the word nice referred to a stupid, ignorant, or foolish person.

However, by the 15th century, it started to refer to a person who was finely dressed, shy or reserved, or precise.

Could this evolution be the reason why the expression “mr nice” sometimes conveys a feeling of somebody who can be easily taken advantage of? In other words, foolish?

Haven’t you heard people saying, I don’t want to be “Mr nice?”
