How do you measure character?

How do you measure or test for character? Does dusting the dojo, or laying/removing mats, X times in the last couple of months indicate a person of good or bad character? Is a clean gi an indicator of a clean, and savory, character?

Second, if character can be measured, and thus quantified, then whose standards do you use? Items like "sexual morals" vary throughout the world and for that matter varies with the passage of time.
