Question #9: What one personality trait would you like to have?
This is something I've actually thought about often. I think about it any time I see someone who is calmly even-tempered in just about any circumstance. That's the trait I'd most like to have.
I'm not sure how they do it, really...people with this type of personality just don't seem to get ruffled no matter what's happening. They are still happy, sad, concerned, compassionate - they just don't ever "lose it" over situations.
This seems like a desirable attribute because it must make life so much easier to manage...for both yourself and those around you. And, it probably wreaks a lot less havoc on the nerves! I'm working on learning this, but it definitely doesn't come to me naturally.
