Learningagility, listening, and communication skills are among thesignificant strengths that I possess. I can learn and adjust tochanges or new situations very faster. Interpersonal communicationand learning skills are among the best personal traits in my life. Iam also self-motivated, hardworking, and determined towards achievingsuccess. Without determination and motivation, it is even quitedifficult for a person to achieve future goals successfully.
Inmy life, I always get angry when someone wastes my valuable time andother resources. I can also get angry when injustice is done to anyhardworking and honest person. I also hate people who depend onothers so I can get angry easily to such people and this might affectrelationships with others.
