These admirable character traits are what women really want and what men like; they are what people strive to be and what others look for in a mate.

The best qualities in a person will vary, based on the person assessing or being assessed, but there's no denying there are certain qualities to look for in a person that are common across the board. Most people would agree that the best traits in a person include being trustworthy, loyal, and fun, but what else constitutes the best quality traits in a person?
