Good or Well
I think good or well both mean the same thing, but which one would be better to use, good or well?
Well seems a little bit less than good, on the other hand good is maybe used more frequently so sounds more bland? I'm not sure. I hope I'm not making a mistake by asking this question here as it is not strictly a grammar topic but more an issue of style.
They are different parts, but have similar implications. 'Well' is an adverb that will usually modify a verb. Someone may ask you, "How are you?" The proper reply is, "I am well." This answers the question 'how'.
'Good' is an adjective and will usually modify a noun. He is a good person. That was a good movie.
They are not interchangeable in usage.
