How do I know if an NPC is hostile?

When I see an NPC from a distance I’m uncertain of whether or not they will attack me on sight. What I’ve done up until now is save the game, go up to them, and if they’re hostile I’ll re-load my save and kill them using a bow.

Is there anyway to know if an NPC is hostile from a distance?


Shoot an arrow near the target while sneaking. If they are hostile to you, they’ll start searching for you and you can see your stealth eye open a little bit. If they are not hostile, then they’ll ignore your shot.
