Top Ten Things That Make a Good Person

Kiteretsunu
This is a sort of personal list for me which expresses my view on this topic.

The Top Ten

1 Respect

And yet another attribute important in making of a good individual. If a person respects his peers, companions, elders, family, his belongings, the nature, the food he is eating, the locality in which he is living, his work, his hobbies and anything you can think of, he is bound to become a great individual. - Kiteretsunu

Damn Rights! Without Respect you aren't worthy!

Respect to me is more important then Love! - Curti2594

A person always have to be respected - JaysTop10List

Without respect what is this world. life would be a misery and unappreciated. if you respect one person that could change their life forever (in a good way) and they would show respect to the other person and this will go on like a water cycle. RESPECT is what makes the best person

2 Guilt

I know that everybody would say that love, compassion and so on makes a person good. But I'm taking a realistic approach here. If a person feels guilty for his bad behavior, he will always try to correct himself. Guilt makes a person realise his mistakes and motivates him to work upon them. Total goodness cannot be achieved without this. - Kiteretsunu

Exactly, you learn more from your failures than you do when you succeed - SuperHyperman

I totally agree here. Without guilt, you are a horrible individual. - PositronWildhawk

Correct. It makes a person more improved one. - kormo

3 Good Sense of Humor

Twisted humor counts right? - Seventies-Music-Fan

I think having a good sense of humour makes people like you. it makes them see that you can be a good sense of humoured person.

4 Love

Now comes the most popular attribute which everyone seeks to find in every good individual. Love is very important not only in making of a good individual but it is one of the most important thing in our whole life. One cannot imagine a life without love in it. - Kiteretsunu

Love is the greatest thing on the planet. You don't decide you want to spend the rest of your life with someone just because you respect them. I respected my grade 6 teacher, I does not mean I want to marry him. Good sense of humour, kindness, humility,all that makes up LOVE. Those things are good too, but as they say, love conquers all

I disagree with the order of your list, I'd place this one first. Anyway, I understand your point. Great list! - keyson

Love is nice and greath

5 Discipline

Discipline is very necessary for the development of a productive individual. Discipline makes a person responsible and reliable. He is greatly focused on what he does and the person can direct his thinking in doing something productive every time. - Kiteretsunu

6 Concern for Others

Developing this attitude is really important in becoming a good person. By showing concern for others, you develop a deep bond with them.. A healthy society can only be formed by developing this attitude. - Kiteretsunu

Ehh, Depends on the person - Seventies-Music-Fan

7 Shame

A shameless person can go to any grounds and do whatever without caring for others. A murderer has no shame in stealing a life. A corrupted business man can sell unhealthy and potentially harmful products without any shame. A drug dealer deals in drugs because he has no shame in seeing people destroying their lives using these drugs sold by him. A terrorist has no shame on himself while killing innocent people. - Kiteretsunu

Kiteretsunu, sure, shame does mean people have a soul, but you know what's better than feeling shame? Not doing bad things in the first place! - ethanmeinster

And what stops a person from doing bad things in the first place? A thing called shame stops us from doing bad things in the first place. - Kiteretsunu

8 Pride

Pride is generally taken in a negative sense whenever people talk about it as a human attribute. But some pride is really essential in making of a perfect individual. A patriot takes pride in his country's culture. A scientist is proud of the world's scientific development. A economist takes pride in his country's stable and fabulous economy (if the economy is really stable for that country). - Kiteretsunu

Having too much pride makes people full of themselves, but having too little causes someone to have low self esteem. However, it is good for someone to have the right amount of pride.

Wow. I'm a horrible person - Seventies-Music-Fan

9 Patience

Patience is must as some of our life's most important things take time to happen but one day we can have them till that time we should have patience

10 Humility

15 Sincerity
16 Open-Mindedness V 1 Comment
17 Sensitivity

Crying is your mind's way of saying "It's okay" and it is. Being sensitive means you can accept pain and let the wound bleed without dying. - AnonymousChick
