Top Ten Most Admirable Qualities In a Person


The Top Ten

1 Hard-working

Absolutely the best, they always ended up being the most successful people

This is my second favorite quality- one because I'm a Hufflepuff and two because others see me as it. Oh, and also I see myself as it. My favorite is intelligence. - MaxAurelius

Nothing more respectable than someone willing to work for what they want. The driving force to keep getting better, and to never settle for less is extremely attractive! - keycha1n

In my eighth grade year, I was lazy and not hard working, but I got good grades somehow. - Therandom

In 8th grade, I lazed the whole year, and worked for like 17 hours/day on the week of finals and passed with an A+ - styLIShT

3 Confident

A confident person knows themselves well. There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. A confident person is someone who does stuff because they know they can. They know what they can do. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

It is amazing to know that God always will protect us from the evil one. It gives me confidence beyond what I could ever imagine.

You also can't fake real confidence. Nothing like someone who carries themselves proudly and powerfully. This quality, I strive for because it's something I love to see in other people. - keycha1n

My confidence comes for God. It's the best source knowing that he loves you and that he won't let you fall into the snares of evil - MrQuaz680

4 Passionate

Passion is something genuine and very admirable because it's impossible to fake. We are subconsciously drawn to people who love what they do with all of their heart. That's something I wish to always have. - keycha1n

Hopefully you mean passionate as in they admire what they do rather than passion in the bed... - Turkeyasylum

Do you mean passionate in wiping someone to the floor? I can do that.(I've said it before, I've been taught how to fight) - Therandom

5 Modest

Humble people are those very deserving of our utmost respect, because there's nothing more annoying than an amazing person whose head is larger than themselves. Haha! - keycha1n

6 Honest

Being HONEST is the admirable trait a person can ever have.

If you search for tenderness, it isn't hard to find. You can have the love you need to live. But if you search for truthfulness, you might just as well be blind. It always seems to be so hard to give. Honesty is such a lonely word; everyone is so untrue... - PetSounds

I can't stand those who put up a fake front, so I admire those who live life sincerely. They don't care what other people will think about them, they always speak their mind, and they save the day by standing up for themselves and others. - keycha1n

Honesty's generally a great quality to have, but sometimes it's better to lie than to be truthful; sometimes it's more humane. - IpodSwagger

I may be honest on this site, but I'm a master of deceiving. (Laughs evilly) - Therandom

7 Humor

Humorous people are the best. They make just about anything into the most amazing thing. It's so much fun to be around them and really they can make your day within seconds; they can turn a terrible day into an amazing one. I appreciate these people so much, especially those who have this along with a caring personality.

Humor people are very admirable since they create a positive and full of joy atmosphere around others.

8 Loving

Sincere care for one's friends, family, and even total strangers is a rare gift. They're that one person you can always count on because they love you in the most honest way. - keycha1n

My favorite personality trait! :D - Garythesnail

9 Responsible

I admire those who are responsible and leader-like. Because I'm neither of those things (lol), but seriously, these people are the ones who have your back and always get things done! - keycha1n

One has to be responsible to keep all of these other values strong. - PositronWildhawk

10 Empathetic

Ah, the ability to step into another's shoes; a skill I think, is the most important to have in life. They treat others how they want to be treated, they know what to say when you're blue, and you know they can always relate. I make a conscious and constant effort to be this person because it's people like these that are the greatest friends in life. - keycha1n

22 Energetic

I think an energetic can gain great personality by his/her work

23 Loyalty

If two people are loyal to each other, then that means that they can trust each other. I once had a knew a girl who acted friendly, and she ended up being my friend, but she betrayed me and befriended a kid whom most of her friends hated. She ended up losing me after an argument, and it seemed like she lost her now ex-best friend because she betrayed her, she betrayed me, she betrayed most of her friends, and in a way, she betrayed herself, as she ended up being miserable for the rest of the year because she was so used to being friends with so many people. She tried to make friends, but everyone knew her dark side. Although she seemed like an insightful and caring person, her disloyalty is what drove everyone away from her. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy
