    Because we don't have an inside view of the traits and gifts we don't have ourselves, so it's mysterious exactly how people manage it. It's not immediately apparent to me how dancers can just pick up a dance and make it look good. I don't truly understand it, so I don't think I could do it myself, so I'm impressed because it has that flavour of magic to it.

    I'd be a card-carrying sensotard, but I can't find the goddamn card.

    Someone with different qualities complements us. This person can help us grow and see new perspectives.

    I would also add, that we don't always admire what we're not. Sometimes we are turned off by someone who is too different, someone who just seems incomptabile with our values and interests. Like @Jaguar said, I don't admire serial killers.

    Yep, there are skills and qualities that intrigue me that just seem beyond anything I could ever accomplish.

    Yet, sometimes these are the things we have the potential to accomplish or already have it in ourselves but just don't know it. Sometimes we need the right person to bring those out.

    Clicked an old thread, it was interesting, why not?

    This is a deeply resonant answer. And unfamiliarity can make something more beautiful to us - that's the very definition of the word "exotic".

    ^ yeah. that's good.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    This is a rather vague question, and doesn't have a single answer.

    I don't really admire people who have qualities I lack and desire, instead I get somewhat envious and competitive.

    There are also many attributes that I lack but do not find attractive.

    I think that, in general, we have a tendency to focus on our blind spots and ignore our strengths. It is glaringly apparent to us when we attempt something and fail, and we tend to focus less on what we can do and more on what we can't. From an evolutionary standpoint, I can only assume that this plays a key role in our motivation to improve and perfect ourselves.

    I take the comments on this thread as an admission that everybody looking and acting the same would not be a good idea?

    I am enjoying this...a lot.
