Traits are the behaviours and characteristics you bring to an occupation and a workplace that make you who you are.

It’s possible that the significant experiences you identified are important to you because they allowed you to express some positive traits. Examples of traits include:

  • Dependability
  • Flexibility
  • Curiosity
  • Respect for others
  • Cheerfulness
  • Self-reliance

From the list below, select the traits that played a part in your significant experiences. You do not need to select traits in each group.
