The table below shows various traits that make up a human being. They are the traits of human consciousness; or perhaps we can call them the endowments of human character, or simply character or personality traits. They are grouped within the categories of an individual's (1) attitudes, (2) miscellaneous attributes, (3) social endowments, and (4) skills. Each trait is shown in two ways; how it manifests in a positive way in a person, and how it manifests negatively in a person.

If, for example, you decide you want to improve your attitudes or other aspects of your being, you can reference this table to discover which items you might want to improve on. Also note that at the end of the table are other ways of looking at the traits of human consciousness, including subdividing them at three planes -- physical, vital, and mental; divided in ways that relate to one's success and accomplishment in life, breakdown of traits amongst human values, and so forth. This is an even more advanced knowledge.

TRAITS ORGANIZED BY OUR HUMAN MAKEUP

Aside from the listing above, traits of human consciousness can be viewed from a number of other perspectives. Here are several:

Traits Organized from Psychological (Inner-oriented) to Social (Outer-oriented)

Human personality/character traits can be divided by those that are inner/psychological; and those that are outer-oriented/social. (They can then be further divided positively and negatively.) To see this list, click here

Traits Expressing in the Vertical Scale of Human Consciousness  (Physical, Vital, Mental)

The individual human expresses exits at three fundamental planes or levels of being -- mental, vital, and physical. At each plane, we express certain traits. E.g. the traits of awareness and insightfulness are at the mental level; our various attitudes at the vital level; and our physical makeup and well being at the physical level. For a detailed chart of these three levels/planes (plus sublevels) and the individual human traits that express at each, click here.
