Does ego death make you a nicer person?

Ego death is a cosmic promotion, with the highest rank as pure being, you can't get any closer to yourself when you know that your realest self is pure awareness

No. But if you want to be a nicer person you can be.

It can make you a nicer person. Can also make you an even bigger asshole. It all depends on who you are and who you want to be.

I feel both dark and light energies when I consume my psychedelic of choice, ayahuasca

I both want to reach out to people I know and tell them the good things they've told me, how I was wrong and how I'm sorry to have wronged them, and I also get a strong sexual hunger and desire for power, and the feeling of both demonic possession and the feeling of seeing the face of God, of overwhelming divine presence

Yes, it does, but it's important to clarify a couple things. First, the point of ego death or ego boundary dissolution (different things but the end goal is the same and they are obviously related) is not to become a better person or to improve your behavior as an ego, that's a side consequence of the fundamental change in outlook obtained by what can only be called 'realizing' it, as in, literally making emotionally and palpably real what has previously only been for you intellectual. You may have trips specifically to improve an aspect of yourself, and if you believe they will work, then they will work, but if you're going to have a goal-driven trip, best to stick to one goal at a time, and ego dissolution is a more important goal than any other if you still have not yet had it.

Second, it will make you a better person, but the context of when and to whom you are nicer is important. Niceness and sympathy is relatively easy, but real and deep empathy is more powerful, and will cement your ego dissolution as a feature of who you will be when you reconstitute.

Being a nicer person makes you a nicer person.

Except sometimes maybe it doesn't...
... I dunno

Not necessarily. I want to differentiate between "nice" and kind" though, which you seem to be using interchangeably. A person who is nice can be pretty cold hearted, even though they typically do the "right" thing. A lot of so called nice people have anger issues.

It can definitely show your this if you happen to be the kind of nice person I describe, and consequentially open you up to expressing "not so nice" emotions towards other people. Bottom line I would say it can make you more open about who you are and how you feel to other people, which might make you behave "douche"y on occasion whereas before you were perfect'y amicable.

On the flip side, being able to see and accept yourself as you truly can be foundational to becoming a more loving, open, honest and genuine person in the long run.

It gives you perspective that can be wielded as a tool toward becoming a nicer person.

Once you gain perspective, you can begin to acknowledge merits of opposing views from a somewhat removed "bias."

Sure there's still ego bias, but it may not be as strong as before.

I achieved this state with other drugs before psy, but psy is probably the easiest way to get there.

Depends on if you want to be a nicer person :^)

Depends why you're being a nicer person and what exactly constitutes being "nice", pretty much like with anything else you do.

Also OP, I feel like the question wouldn't actually be all that different in principle if you changed it to something like, "Does somebody giving you a free delicious apple make you a nicer person?"

I mean, it can. Depending on the person and circumstances, it could actually upset you instead. All any of the scenarios you might come up with come down to is just another opportunity for somebody to become a nicer person, should they capitalize on it.
