Everyone who voted "LOYALTY" can go and kiss a Blade. Fucking scum.

To see it place 1 is the very reason why THE WHOLE OF EUROPE is under War.
YOU DO NOT FOLLOW EVIL. YOU RESIST IT. DON'T BE SCUM!!
"Loyalty" ! PFF. Damn Apes and now I insulted noble Animals who just do not know better. Damn scum oh I hope you lose everything you love and cherish.

Love is cute. Guess everyone thoughtless would feel this is the most important. But its not.

Its fucking "VALOR" you assholes.
OOOOH and you will scream in the next years!!
" How could it come to this?! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? "

Why Europe drowns in SWEATTY WOG CRIMINALS?
Cause NO ONE HAD THE COURAGE TO RESIST IT.
Indeed "LOYALTY" to their fucking paychecks and the system played a big part it in, you FOOLS.

And hell the system won't protect you. Its run by Evil you shitheads.

I'd say it's point of view. You can be loyal to the incorrect thing, same as you can love the wrong thing.

But under ideal conditions, do you hope someone will love you, or have your back and that you can trust in time of need? That's how I approach the question. It's still down to how you define it under whatever circumstance you want though.

People are cowards and I am not. I say the truth and I think really, really hard about it.
Especially if the topic and consequences of my actions could contain violence and injustice.

Lets say everyone who does not want to be with me and they don't have my back, I won't have their back either.
And I will gloatfully laugh and sneer, when they die a horrible death like that poor old Woman, who did not knew she served and evil system her whole life.
What am I talking about? THIS: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxMlEd…

This was in Germany. A "Refugee" killed her when he was high.
He took Crystal Meth probably and ripped his clothes off his body in turn. Cause the Drug makes you feel as if you are almost burning inside.
I truly belief that when people are high, it does not make them dumber or smarter, but it makes them more honest to their true self and their true nature.

And what did he do? He had the desire to beat a helpless, old woman to the ground just because she was there.
And when she shouted in response to that ape-like behaviour, he felt so "provoked" in his whatever kinda SHITHOLE-country like pride,
that he needed to start a full and brutal assault on that woman, even though she was unable to defend herself or harm him.
We call these people "Merkel Children" in these dark days.

Well... what do you make of all this?
You know I want this "thing" who behaved in this subhuman kind of way, to die the most horrible death, that ANYTHING in existance has ever died, which has lifed on eath to this current day. At least.
And I do not think that I am evil for wishing this. I am simply... just.


There are not many who would want to have my back and I would not want to have theirs. If they do not 100% agree with me on this topic.
I know... I am really not "Angelic" or "Godly" and thats fine.

People will suffer less, if they would follow my example and my ideas. It would have never come to this in the first place.

I think Loyalty because in Loyalty there is trust and trust is very important. Trust has been lost in others because there is no more respect and less and less people seem to be loyal and true to others. Loyalty is important because we all need to have that comfort that that person or pet will always be there for you even when you are upset with them they will never turn their backs on you and help you out whenever you need it and vice versa.

I value love a lot, but right now I value adaptability. I need it because I find that it's hard to accept love or cherish it when I'm struggling to survive or adjust to adverse situations. I can't invest my time into others because I fail to adapt to my struggles. I'd be able to give my love more freely by using adaptability as a key to better myself.

I agree with most of my fellow posters comments. However, I chose loyalty, as the choices were limited. Loyalty, honesty, and integrity are somewhat similar, but at the same time way different. But loyalty is the choice so.... if you are "loyal" you possess integrity and honesty and vice-versa if your honest you have integrity. Loyalty is a value. Love is eternal, but fleeting. Meaning you can love someone forever, but they do not have to reciprocate, thus it is fleeting. It is a state of being rather than a value. Adaptability, you can adapt to most any situation or person, but adapting is a basic survival skill. As in surviving weather, environment, school, new boss, or job. It is a skill more than a value. Power is something that goes hand in hand with monetary gain and status. As in above E-H-Indigo quoted "Absolute power corrupts absolutely." meaning if you seek power you want to obtain the highest degree or position, as in absolute over all, unquestioned, un checked. So to that end you self destruct. People of power become suspicious of every one and everything, eventually becoming evil and evil always turns in on its self. Power is a position not a virtue. Now valor is tricky, you can have valor, and integrity and be loyal. Valor is again something you obtain, not a virtue. However, it can be thought of as a virtue as it is something you would be virtuous by being valorous, ie Superman had valor by his deeds with his integrity. But a knight seeking love or power would perform deeds of valor for gain. Thank you for asking, I hope I was not to boring.......

I most value people's Honesty, which wasn't an option in the poll. But, I feel is the foundation for all the things you listed as options. Honesty helps builds trust, love, loyalty, valor and power.   

Out of the options you chose, I chose Love. I think that people underestimate the scope of Love, and forget there's different ways in which you can love someone. You can love them romantically, platonically - a friendship love, or the feeling of a close friend being more like a bother or sister to you, familial love - shared between family members, and spiritual love - that solid connection with someone's soul that draws you to them. 

Without love, I don't think you can have loyalty and valor.  Even if the people who follow you, who are loyal to you and would fight t the death for you, don't love you like family, I do think there is a platonic feeling of love underneath the decision to follow a leader. If not, then what you have is someone exerting power through fear and hate. 

Power, to me, brings up the quote:  "Absolute power corrupts absolutely."  If your only gain by befriending or becoming loyal to someone is power - that is an unstable and unhealthy relationship.  Any relationship should be equal for those involve in it.

Surprised that Honesty and Integrity were missing but chose Loyalty as the closest to encompass them, although not the same thing in all cases.

I voted valor.... apparently I'm in the minority. I: Tha's coo'.

But it was only because I didn't see what I was looking for, and it seemed the closest- integrity. For the purposes of why, I suppose its close enough. 

It shows that they've put thought into their standpoints, that they aren't the type to kowtow, and that they can stand on their own two feet. It grants an implication that they're their own person, not some mishmash of a weak will and dependency (not to imply that the others are as such).

Honestly? I value someone who is willing to and capable of arguing with me or anyone else who might challenge them. They're confident enough to defend themselves yet willing to recognize and accept their own shortcomings and those of others. That might not be how one classically thinks of valor (knight in shining armor, anyone?) but if bravery ain't marching forward with other people, fully knowing that you all got issues, I don't know what is.

Also, those are totally the people who will do the stupid, dangerous things with you. What's life without adventure?

Loyalty and love to me are the most important personality traits for me. They seem to be good either for the person holding them, and for these around.
I am sure how loyalty would make one able to control anything :confused: 

And then adaptability always comes in handy for social activities, work... Power and valor may be someting of more "transitory" value for me

I think that Valor is admirable because not everyone has it in 'em, and it can always help in dealing with tight situations - provided that it's under proper control (as with Power). But, personally, having adaptability is quite indispensable in the current age that we live in. It's a good value to have, since not everyone is agreeable and flexible even if they tried.

I voted for loyalty, since if we are not loyal to our close ones, we just end up backstabbing them and if people just backstab each other, we can trust no one else than ourselves, and that wouldn't work in the end in a world as connected as this.

Although adaptability is good too.

Love can be fickle, loyalty's fine as long as they're not sensless about it, adaptability feels key as that's required for understanding others, power and valor is empty without the above listed traits. Just my opinion :P

Adaptability. ... Because being considerate wasn't an option D:
Anyway, While the other ones listed here are great, I place more value on people who are willing to adapt as needed because I just like efficiency and yeah... 
Does that make me an awful person?  Oh well.  Efficient people make me happy.
