Keep in mind if you are a female, il faut dire: "Je suis bonne"

"je" is genderless (as well as tu, nous, vous), obviously the agreement will be made according to who is speaking.

"Bien" is usually an adverb, while "Bon/Bonne" is usually an adjective. You can read more about them here: http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/bon-bien.htm

Do you mean "bien"? It means "well".

Unclear English phrase. «Je vais bien» if in reference to how you are feeling.

«Je suis bon à qqch» - «je suis bon» dit que «je goûte bien»...ce semble sexuel.

My French speaking friends tend to respond with "ca va bien" rather than Je suis bon/ne
