For me, it is groundedness. What is it for you, and why?

Billie, what an inspiring commentary on what it means to be a good human being. Thank you for sharing your personal story so unselfishly ;). I don't know if it was Eric Fromm you made that wise comment, but if he did, he was right. Love this answer.
Savvydating, my thanks. It's always nice to feel the way we think about something is shared and appreciated. Cheers, Billie
Another excellent answer. If humans really listened, there would be a lot less lonely people around. A good listener provides healing. Very thoughtful answer, dashing!
A beautiful answer, Paula. And so eloquently written. Compassion is possibly the highest of human traits. Thank you for humoring with just one trait. Your choice is incredibly lovely.
Ah yes, having empathy is an incredibly important trait to have and something the world needs more of, Stephania. Thank you.
I do know that it isn't particularly healthy to go into a relationship with suspicion. Innocent until proven guilty, right? But seriously, trust and trustworthiness are beautiful traits.Thanks for commenting, paras joshi.

Hmmm. Do you feel limited? And is your answer---There is no characteristic to be had unless our parents and such did not "limit" us?
Not at all. I am saying that people are born with lots of potential; however, they are taught limited paradigms by their family, adult authorities, & the general society.
Thank you, GM.
Yes, without love, we have nothing. Good point, Joyfulcrown!
Hi RL....so far, we have two votes for empathy. You are correct; it is a powerful faculty---and I appreciate your use of the word sophisticated. Great answer.
I also think it is the most attractive personality characteristic, at least for me. I get that "I wanna marry you feeling" when I see it shine in a girl, no matter what she looks like.
RL, What a perfect thing to say. It makes my heart go pitter-patter. I hope women can learn from your wisdom. ....I might have just fallen in love with you. :)
