Are you looking for an explanation and an extensive list of good, strong and positive personal qualities, virtues and (character) characteristics? Read on for the list of core values ​/virtues, ​including a link to a detailed explanation!

For example during career coaching it is often recommended to assess your own characteristics with a test, after which you can focus on improving some core qualities, so that you are ultimately suitable for, for example, a job in healthcare or education.

Also, many core qualities are useful / required in all types of work, as professional behavior is often expected at work.

However, work and career is not the only context for which you need to use good qualities. In fact, virtues like happiness, love, and kindness don’t need a reason to be used at all.
