I feel empathy is very important. Somehow, when I meet someone who is empathetic, I feel close to them.
I'm really nice to strangers, so people usually peg me as a nice guy. Of course, that also means they often think I'm a bit of a pushover (well I do let a good number of things slide). I have no sense of (spatial) direction. I'm not very confrontational, but I know how to stand up for some things.
Oh, and that I'm not a bad teacher.
