That is impossible to outline. As a thread, you will get any number of answers that are as different as people are different. We all admire different qualities in people. And most Budo people (not not all) want an Asian face they can project their budo fantasies on to start with. People don't like to admit and even deny it...but it is patently obvious.
As the muppets said: "Peoples is peoples."
I like kind, well balanced people, who don't take themselves too seriously. That has nothing to do with budo though. There I will take someone I can learn from, warts and all. I don't have to like them.

Thanks Dan, I think I get the basic idea. I like kind well balanced people myself too, like most other people I guess.

Cheers,
Lars
