So I'm trying to figure out what to write for #2

Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud, and how does it relate to the person you are?

I've rewritten it and rewritten it but nothing really sounds right. Would being intuitive, having a calm mind, and never giving up count under qualities?

    Although I'm no adcom, I really don't think that what you write about is of much importance (unless its horrible cliched) as is how you write it. So that being said, if you can write a great essay dealing about your intuition or calm mind, I feel that the paper could be very effective.
