Hmm...I think I'll go with feedback I've gotten while on the job. Best qualities/abilities -
*Excellent and effective communication, both verbal and written
*Driving Results, understanding what it takes to meet timelines and deliver
*Ability to learn and retain large amount of information quickly
*Effectively manage multiple responsibilities by excellent organization, prioritization, and time management skills
*Know how to ‘get to the point’ (although that may not be evident on this forum , it remains true on-the-job and in my personal life)
*'Remarkable ability to see clearly and concisely what needs to be done', 'doesn't get bogged down in details' (a coworker's words, not mine)
As for traits that I think stand out and that I like about myself, I like my curiosity, analytical leanings, communication and people skills, appreciation of the more aesthetic and sensory elements of life, sense of adventure and desire for growth and change, intuition/perception, foresight and looking to future implications/things, and contemplative/observant aspect.
"...On and on and on and on he strode, far out over the sands, singing wildly to the sea, crying to greet the advent of the life that had cried to him." - James Joyce
I can easily accept and love anyone, no matter who they are or what they've done.
I'm a great listener
I'm not vendictive
I forgive and forget easily
I can be playful, but I can be serious when needed.
All of the above along with
Seeing the good in other people
.. I do think some of these traits are not good to have these days .. People take advantage and being so naive, i don't see it coming and that is not a good trait. :rolli:

-Curious (able to entertain and explore unusual/contrasting ideas, without having to deride them as stupid or wrong)
- Comfortable with ambiguity and readily able to say "I don't know"
- I'm creative.
- I'm intelligent.
- When I combine two of more of my interests, the result will probably be awesome.
- I'm a perceiver, but I'm not that bad. When I feel responsible for something, it will be done, in time. I can enter a "stubborn mode" to get the task done. I've heard of teachers who schedule surgery during the school year rather than during the holiday. I've heard of a teacher who seizes any excuse for not coming to the school. I simply can't get such behaviour. There are students waiting to be taught!
I take an earlier train if the later one has a 20% chance of a delay which would cause me being to late at school.
- I have a lot of imagination. I've added the same to the worst qualities...
