Adjectives - Positive Character Traits

Average: 3.8 (18 votes)

The following adjectives are positive character traits essential to learning English. I have included very concise (short, brief) definitions. Please consult a dictionary for a complete understanding of each word because many of the words are very similar in meaning. These words are worth incorporating into your vocabulary, so the next time someone asks you to describe yourself; you won't have any difficulty coming up with 11 positive character traits.

ambitious – having a strong desire to succeed

conscientious – displaying great care in the outcome of one's work

dauntless – not frightened or discouraged

diligent – hard-working, showing a lot of effort

enthusiastic – having passionate interest about something

gregarious – friendly and sociable

loquacious – very talkative

persistent – the ability to continue despite difficulties or problems

resilient – the ability to recover from failures or setbacks

resourceful – creative in solving problems or reaching goals

tenacious – determined to proceed as planned

Choose the word which is NOT a synonym.

Positive character traits

1 mistake with "persistent" antonym. But the rest was very difficult to pick. Some I guessed, some I've known, some were complete tongue twisters. Smile Thank you for this vocabulary, I'll try to remember and use them.
