While on the surface they might look very similar, Niceness and Kindness are different things. Niceness’s mission is to make everybody feel “happy” or at least “okay,” and to prevent any uncomfortable situations. Kindness on the other hand aims to genuinely help people without being concerned about the perception of others. Niceness is rooted in fear of displeasing others while Kindness is rooted in humility.
