There are too many different kinds of good person to name. Moreover, we all have the capability to be good, and at different times in our lives have different levels of goodness, if you will.
But traits that I personally admire are:
The ability to be compassionate not only toward others, but also and especially toward oneself.
Honesty, i.e. the courage to put oneself out there genuinely.
A sense of humor.
A sense of wonder and imagination.
Courage in general.

You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
They called me the hyacinth girl.
Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

Actually I don't fully understand the OP's question. I can totally respect somebody I don't consider particularly good as a person and I can meet a really good person whom I won't respect too much.
The reasons why I can respect a person, admire them, hang out with them, or consider them good people do not necessarily coincide.
intelligence without arrogance.
strength with restraint.
someone who does his best given what he has.
someone who takes responsibility and doesn't blame others.
Someone kind, giving, but who does not let him/herself be taken advantaged of.
a clear-eyed person.
