I'm sincere. I'm always ready to help someone out, whether or not what they want to achieve is possible. This helps me become a perfect gentleman - this journey for me is like a Buddhist person's journey to reach enlightenment. In sincerity lies honesty. I've heard that second-born children can never lie, and it's true for me. I never do. Lying once makes you need to lie again. This makes life unnecessarily uncomfortable - it's just not worth the effort!

I work well under pressure. There are many situations in life where you'll be under pressure and expected to work well, so this is a useful characteristic. When I'm under pressure, I take things more seriously and therefore get things done more efficiently. For example, I find that I work the hardest right before a coursework deadline or an exam. It's surprising because I am able to get the ball through the hoop in netball when everyone is tense. I like this about myself because I know that many other people are not able to stay calm when it's most important to do so.
