Describe a good human quality you admire

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 458 with Model Answer:

Describe a good human quality you admire.

You should say:
  • what it is
  • how it can help us to do better in life
  • whether you have this quality
and explain why you admire this quality so much. 

[Instruction: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]


Model Answer 1:
All human beings have the potential to become successful and do great things in life, but only a tiny fraction of them can harness their true potential and attain meaningful success. I believe one of the most significant human qualities that make that difference is "punctuality". Thus I admire "punctuality" as a great human quality. I would like to thank you for this excellent topic.

I believe punctuality has a paramount value in our life, and punctual people, who do things exactly at the right time, are better organised. Our life is short, and the value of time is perhaps the greatest. Since we all need to do so many things in our limited amount of time, only punctual individuals can finish their tasks at the right time and thus move ahead in life faster. Punctuality is also helpful to have a stress-free life. Procrastination and laziness kill our precious time, hinder our success and bring misery to our life.

Well, I try to be punctual and finish my tasks on time. However, I can't label myself as one of those people who have practised this excellent quality from an early age and made it a part of their basic characteristics. I am happy that I am much more punctual these days than ever before. 

I admire "punctuality" because I've experienced how punctual people stay ahead and accomplish more in life. Laziness and procrastination have caused a great deal of trouble in my own life. And I know that doing things at the right moment is the mantra to a successful life, and also a sure way to progress and stay ahead in life. Finally, punctuality brings more opportunities in life and makes us more active.  



Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
I must say that this is a thoroughly interesting topic to talk about. I admire many good qualities, and one such quality that I deeply admire is empathy, which has the power to foster compassion and understanding in our interactions with others.

What it is:
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. It involves stepping into someone else's shoes, seeing the world from their perspective, and responding with kindness and understanding. It goes beyond sympathy and allows us to connect on a deeper level, acknowledging the emotions and experiences of others.

How it can help us to do better in life:
Empathy plays a pivotal role in our personal and professional relationships. By being empathetic, we can create a supportive and inclusive environment, fostering trust, and strengthening our connections with others. It helps us navigate conflicts, resolve misunderstandings, and build meaningful relationships based on mutual respect and understanding.

Whether you have this quality:
I believe empathy is a vital quality to cultivate, and I strive to develop it in my interactions with others. While it may not come naturally to everyone, I believe that empathy can be learned and nurtured through practice and conscious effort. I make a conscious effort to listen attentively, validate others' emotions, and consider different perspectives before responding.

And explain why you admire this quality so much:
I admire empathy because of its transformative power. It has the ability to bridge divides, heal wounds, and promote a sense of unity among individuals and communities. Empathy fosters kindness, tolerance, and acceptance, creating a more compassionate and inclusive society. Witnessing acts of empathy inspires me and reaffirms my belief in the innate goodness of humanity. It serves as a reminder that we all have the capacity to understand and support one another, leading to a more harmonious and empathetic world.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible. Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me.
