You pass an acquaintance who greets you with "How're you doing?" Is your reply more likely to include an answer or just a repetition of the question?

I always say "I'm not dead or in jail, so doing great. How you doing?"

Am I the only one who read this as Joey (Friends)? Haha

I'm fine, thanks. How are you?
That's my generic response.

In these exchanges the other person always says they are "good" while I (by habit) say that I'm "well."

I know I'm grammatically correct but it kinda sounds condescending...like I'm subtly trying to correct them... I swear, it's just habit.
