A concern for people Do you care about the people around you and what happens to them? An enquiring mind Do you always want to find out more about things that interest you? And do you analyse and update the knowledge you already have? An interest in people Are you curious about how other people think and feel? Do you generally like other people and take an interest in what they say and do? A rational approach Are you keen to establish facts, test ideas and find out how things work and why they go wrong? Do you approach problems in a logical way? An open mind Do you get along well with people whose attitudes and background are very different from yours? Can you see things from other people's point of view? Imagination Can you see around problems to find new solutions? Do people look to you for ideas? Ability to handle pressure How have you coped with pressure situations such as the build-up to exams? Does it affect your behaviour significantly or can you handle it? Hard work Can you cope with hard work over sustained periods? Patience Do you get impatient with other people easily, or are you willing to go along at their pace? Determination If something doesn't come right first time, do you give time and effort to sorting it out? Decisiveness Do you make decisions with a fair degree of confidence, based on what you know? Humility Are you comfortable with recognising the limits of your ability and knowledge, and willing to look to others for help?
