What traits do you most respect in people, and why?

What traits do you all think leads to a person of high quality/someone you'd respect/a better person?

I believe that honor, honesty, and loyalty are very important. They help society function better and can inspire others. These qualities make for a strong, admirable, respectable person. Humility and generosity in abundance are qualities I think should be avoided like the plague. Humility makes a person weak and subservient, and too much generosity creates dependence and contributes to the weakness of others.

I agree.

What do you say about individuals ?
