    • Leadership: you excel at encouraging a group to get things done

    • Forgiveness: being merciful toward transgressions of others; accept the shortcomings of individuals, events and actions

    • Fairness: treating all people fairly; are just

Emotion

  • Feelings as a result of something

    • Positive: happy and excited

    • Negative: sad and scared
       

Humans then rationalize these behaviors via their thoughts
