The ultimate human attributes

Geoffrey Kwitko - Saturday, September 12, 2009
What is the Ultimate Test? Would it be some kind of intelligence test? Is intelligence really the ultimate quality that humans can possess? Or is this “ultimate” attribute something more abstract and less tangible! Something we might intuitively recognize in a person as being truly remarkable but can’t quite define or name. What if we could actually measure or quantify this subtle yet profound characteristic?

Might humanity benefit by identifying truly remarkable people and utilizing their wisdom and judgement?
Today we more readily acknowledge individual feats of merit or achievement. We even have various awards for such perceived grand deeds. The Nobel Prize with all its various but limiting categories is an example of such recognition. But this acknowledgement comes retrospectively to a select few, usually many years after the achievement or discovery. It sometimes further isolates the recipient rather than re-engages them. Instead, what if we could predict such prodigious capacity, not only in a few select fields such as science or literature, but more widely in every beneficial human endeavor?

What if we could identify the underlying markers associated with such profound achievement or great wisdom? Some such persons might be in the most unexpected of situations, even as laborers or peasants working the fields. If we were then to champion, nurture and better utilize these remarkable people wouldn’t this be a precious resource for the betterment of our world? Such an evaluation or rating process might surely be termed the ultimate test?

Or is our ultimate test as a humanity how well we utilize our remarkable untapped potential for goodness and greatness? If this is a determinant of the survival of our planet, the time we have left is fast running out!

What might ultimate human attributes be?
How can we strive to achieve this?
