One more thing that I would like to add is : They respect themselves. If one is capable of doing this ,
then only they are able to respect others.

Also having complete emotional control. Not letting anything cloud your judgement is key. This also
implies having nerves of steel, just stressing enough to keep you alert and sharp, not being too effected
by pressure and therfore rising to the occasion.
Edit: And not whining, getting over things easily (you kind of mentioned that)

Harminder Singh: I agree! Thanks

Karen Scott-Martinet

As a mentally strong person, I will add a slightly different aspect. Regarding Singh's #3 - I think a lot, not
less, therefore do more meaningful things better (total INTJ). Also, regarding #7, I am very future-oriented
so analyze possible outcomes before taking actions when possible. Other than that, I agree with his
thoughts! Going through various challenges in our lives can help us to be mentally strong or cause us to
fall apart - it is our choice.
