Characteristics of a Good Personality: Desirable Basic Human Qualities | California Psychics (2023)

Do You Have Desirable Traits?

What are good qualities in a person? No one is free of flaws and quirks, but there are 10 desirable traits of personality and character that attract the right people and circumstances into one’s life. One could say that these are the main characteristics of a good person.

1. Integrity
The definition ofintegrity comes from the Latin word integritas, meaning “whole” or “intact.” It encumbers all the best human qualities that make a truly good person, such as honesty, being incorruptible, straight and morally upright.

A person with integrity won’t lie, will keep their word and won’t betray you. They won’t go behind your back, badmouth you, go after another person’s partner or cheaton you. They adhere to a code of ethics that may make them predictable, butsafe to the heart and one’s sanity. No unpleasant surprises come from someone with the most desirable traits in a good human. People who exhibit the best human qualitiesfollow a code of ethics that tends to be, incorruptible, and they adhere to principles of common decency.

2. Courageousness
Let’s face it, people. Who wants to be with a coward? Someone who can’t and won’t stand up for their own beliefs will definitely not stand up for you. Courageousness may not seem like such a big deal to some, but upon examining history, one notices that cowards are not too different from criminals. Why? Because most atrocious crimes to mankind would not havesucceeded had it not been for the silent bystanders and those who looked the other way. No courage usually also means no principles, which will make you expendable for the simple reason that a coward will only do the least effort required and will tug tail and run when true work is required. Cowardice is not one of the most desirable traits in a human being!

3. Sense of Humor
Life has its ups and downs. There will be good times, bad times, hard times and easy times. Everything is easier if one keeps a sense of humor, or at least surrounds oneself with those who have one. There is a reason that poll after poll shows that most people desire a sense of humor in their partners. I also feel that someone who makes me laugh most of the time will probably not make me cry too often either. For some odd reason, this equation works for me, and so a sense of humor is definitely one of the most desirable traits a person can have.

4. Intelligence, Education and Common Sense
I have met plenty of people in my life with high IQs and no common sense. My personal belief is that common sense, social intelligenceand “street smarts” are pretty much the same.Being able to solve the most difficult mathematical problems certainly won’t make anyone a great partner or friend, if they cannot hold a conversation, relate to other people at all and have zero social skills. Social skills or relating to others are abilities that require the use of common sense, which dictates what or what not to do or say in everyday settings. Overall, I don’t think any further explanation is required when it comes to this this most desirable trait.

5. Emotionally Open
No one wants to be with someone who’s so closed off they can’t show normal” emotions. If you’ve ever tried to be friends or have a relationship with someone who has the emotional depth of a rock, you certainly know what I mean. How would someone who has a hard time feeling, or showing feelings, relate to you? There’s a difference between someone who is so closed off that they just look at you blankly, or worse, scold you or put you down when you’re feeling sad or miserable, and someone who breaks down as soon as they are looked at the wrong way. Being able to share one’s heart doesn’t mean one has to be a weakling or whiner. Someone who can’t feel is usually damaged goods, and a lack of depth in emotional matters usually translates into a lack of depth in other matters!

6. Kindness
Kindness protects you from all kinds of heartaches. It’s like integrity. A person who possesseskindness will usually keep your heart safe and your best interests in mind. Their willingness to help others also translates into someone who knows how to put someone else’s needs ahead of their own when needed. A kind person carries a light, and that light tends to attract other “good” people too, which is why I consider it to be one of the most desirable traits.

7. Self-Confidence
Everyone is low on confidence now and then. But stay clear of those with literally have no self-esteem. A person without self-confidence/self-esteem spells disaster, because they will fail on numerous other “must-haves.” They are usually driven by self-preservation, and will do almost anything to overcome their feelings of inadequacy. This can make them psychotic and distrusting, and possibly also turn them into stalkers. Which, in return, almost always ensures dishonesty, a closed heart/inability to truly feel and experience love and joy, a lack of integrity and definitely no courage. They’re usually a bucket with a huge hole in the bottom. No matter how much love and care you pour into them, it will never be enough to make them feel safe orgood enough. After all, it’s impossible to love and care for someone who doesn’t love and care for themselves!

8. Discipline
There are different levels of discipline, that’s for sure. But avoid those who have absolutely no discipline at all. It requires discipline to succeed in life. Anyone who throws in the towel at the first sign of difficulty or opposition will not make a great long-term companion. This is because discipline translates into stamina, i.e. staying power. A person who can’t stick with anything for a longer period of time because it’s uncomfortable or means work is, again, someone who is either not confident or lazy. In either scenario, it’s not going to be a winning situation for you, because if they can’t stick with their own goals, they won’t stick with you either.

9. Generosity
One of the worst people to have in one’s life is a miser. Those who constantly complain about the money they don’t have,especially while spending it on things that don’t serve them, are not only annoying, but also no fun to have around. The opposite of generous is selfish, and who wants to be with a selfish person? Being miserly also tends to show in individuals who are very preoccupied with material, i.e., superficial things. Combine that with the constant complaint about not having enough, and you’ll get a good picture of what life with someone who can’t be generous looks like.


10. Self-Awareness
Most people believe themselves to be things they are not. They aren’t really self-aware, and don’t evercheck to see if their idea of who they are coincides with what others see. Self-awareness is the middle ground of truly knowing your strengths and weaknesses without being either completely weak and self-loathing, or arrogant and narcissistic. Self-awareness allows us to see when we’re wrong/screwed up and need to change certain behaviors and patterns. Also, self-awareness allows us to look in the mirror and see who we really are; not who we think or hope we are. People without self-awareness cannot grow, because they will never learn from past mistakes. They are blind and lost souls, stumbling after what looks and sounds the most appealing. Without self-awareness there’s no truth, just illusion. If you don’t know who you are, you sure as hell won’t know what makes you happy.

How Good Qualities in a Person Affect You
If you don’t posses the most desirable traits yourself, you probably won’t find a significant other who possesses them either. While we will always attract those who challenge us, push us to grow and overcome certain things, we too will also attract those who are like us. The key to finding one’s own happiness is to be the things you require and wish for in another.

Being in love is a life experience that everyone deserves. Your search for your soulmate begins with self-improvement, and a love psychic can help. They want to see you happy and a psychic love reading is all you need to find or keep the love that is meant for you.
