IELTS Cue Card Sample 254 - Describe a feature of your personal character that you find important

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a feature of your personal character that you find important.

You should say:

  • what it is
  • is it a common characteristic
  • how it is helpful to you

and explain why it is important to you.

Sample Answer:
Thank you very much for the topic. It’s kind of tough to talk about someone’s own personal characteristics as I believe, the way we judge ourselves differs from the perspective other people judge us. Nonetheless, we all have our own idea about our own characteristics and I would like to talk about my ability to stay calm even in the time of distress.

I am not short tempered and I try to remain calm no matter how severe the situation is and I find it a helpful characteristic. From my own experience I can say that, whenever I got very much vibrated and acted very promptly without giving much consideration about the situation, I did not take the right decision and repented for that.

In my opinion, that should be a common characteristic among other people but my personal experience sometimes contradicts my opinion as I often find people who can’t remain calm in an adverse situation and act very weirdly. So to say, this is not a rare quality but many people lack it.

Remaining calm and using brain rather than the tongue is a helpful characteristic as it would help you taking the right decision and would show you the right way and course of actions. Being very fragile in action and taking a prompt decision without thinking can sometimes lead us to misunderstand and can ruin relationships. Not being able to remain calm also shows your weakness and that often allure you to take a completely wrong decision.

To me, this is a very important characteristic. This quality has saved me from making many mistakes and saved me from lamenting later on. Being able to remain calm in an adverse situation helps me taking the right decision and that’s something which I find very helpful in my personal and professional life.
