Quality is: a distinctive attribute or characteristic possessed by someone or something.
(synonymous to: feature, trait, attribute, characteristic, point, aspect, facet, side, streak, property, peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, quirk….)
It is a general understanding that some qualities take about a lifetime to be possessed, gained or improved……while others need practice for weeks and months.
The fact is that qualities are not ‘hardware’. Those are software…….intangible and subjective.
The way and process of assessing the qualities will always be a subset to the way they are understood, thought upon and appreciated.
That is why, the assessment of qualities almost always reflects the attributes of the evaluators…. 🙂
Assessment of something, which is pure black or white, is always done in grey…
That is, the assessment parameters, criteria, methods, analyses and interpretation modes are in grey….
