What a great list! I'm lucky enough to work for a company that hires for empathy. And if you stay in the coding game long enough, you're going to have to become humble, or very, very frustrated!

One thing that complements and perhaps even summarises the above is Emotional Intelligence. Having an awareness of your own emotional state, that of others, and the subtle interactions between each. It's a total game changer, and for many of us, learnable!

Thanks for the read :)
