    Default NFs: What do you admire in others?

    Just out of curiosity... what qualities do you NFs admire and or respect in others? What qualities do you aspire to be?

    Also, what do you NOT respect? What qualities do you have trouble tolerating?

    In others (my friends) I admire-

    Loyalty, Honesty, Trust. When they give me a helping hand with a problem (especially an emotional one), when they open up on me and let me deal with their problems, when they share experiences or things that matter to them, when they show that they care, when they go out of their way to show that they care or to go out of their way to help me with something, etc. I also admire when my friends know when to be silly and know when to be serious, since that really screws with me when they are overly on one of those. I also admire when people show that they want to bond.

    What I don't admire-

    The opposite of the above, plus people that abuse drugs or alcohol (and if so if they try to make me do it too, but that's just me). When someone knows about something I value and breaks that without compensating.

    EDIT: An example of a value being broken was over the weekend. My friends basically just got drunk... that annoys me. I try to not surround myself with those kinds of people, but it's not a regular occurrence (they just wanted to try it, and didn't invite me because they knew I'd be pissed). So it doesn't matter.

    I tend to admire those characteristics I think I dont have them myself:
    - Decisiveness
    - Clear-thinking
    - Being organized
    - Being exceptionally intelligent (Like "L" and Light in Death Note lol)
    - Being thoughtful and understanding
    - Adamant

    Those characteristics that I tend not to admire:
    - Close-mindedness
    - Being too emotional yet highly manipulative at the same time
    - Conformism

    Honesty, good or bad, makes things less complicated.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I like honesty. I will generally try to get on with as many people as I can.

    I really don't like snobbishness and superiority though. I get really annoyed with people that don't even listen to other people. I don't care about loyalty, honour and other fluffy things, as long as there is respect and understanding. I don't like people who are inflexible and rigid with their values as well, it's just a turn off if you can't forgive someone for some stupid mistake (As an example) because you have some warped sense of honour.

    I can be disloyal and hypocritical myself because I change my mind on things very easy, but I don't think these things make me a bad person

    Being selfish and winding people up makes me a bad person!
    Yes, I would like some sponge cake.

    I think they covered it all up there pretty thoroughly.

    People that are unfair, hypocritical, condescending or intellectually dishonest really piss me off. I will kung-foo kick you so hard your head will roll right off your body.
