Very Helpful & Impressive

All the strengths which have been discussed above are very helpful and impressive. But from my point of view some of them e.g Politeness and Keep Calm are more likely the same thing. For example if I keep myself calm then it's understood that I am very polite with the next person. But If I can not keep myself calm then I can not be polite in the long run. So what I believe is if we put all these strengths (Politeness, Kindness, Calmness, Patience) in one in a broader point of view which will be positive attitude then it will cover some of the strengths.
