    Humility: Necessary to be open to ideas.

    Listening: Facilitates learning.

    Expansiveness: Allows objectivity and minimises narrowness or rigidity.

    Yearning: a longing to learn which is accompanied by Drive.

    Interest: Similar to yearning.

    Purpose: a goal or aim/objective in mind.

    Application. A very necessary aptitude to succeed.

    Thirst: Open to the belief of Self-transcendence; that one can always know more.

    Simplicity: The ability not to confuse the mind but make things simple and succinct.

    Empathy: Ability to listen, to acknowledge the other persons point of view.

    Communication: Embodies much of the others. A free-flowing demeanour which exudes confidence, charm and poise, as well as eloquence which makes it wonderfully easy to captivate others, but essentially embodying an integral sense of Love and Light, quite visible to others. One need not be great on personality if the inner sweetness is visible.

    Service: A wanting to serve soulfully and without ego or with a minimum of ego.

    Wisdom: To have something to share which truly helps us towards a more fulfilling life.

    Others ... the wise know that theirs are never the final word. Learning is ever-transcending.

    Someone who is (curious and loves to learn) about things, people, and places. They also may thrive in competing to get the highest test scores. Getting high grades is their sport of choice.
    In addition it requires self-discipline, effort, and determination to finish what one starts. They enjoy a sense of accomplishment from completing curriculums. In order to excel at anything you have to master it and eventually come to love it.
