    Adjectives for essays

    Hello.
    I would like to collect some adjectives that might be used to describe people.
    Then I would try to choose some of them that might describe me.
    Below you will find some of them

    Adjectives with positive meaning: hard-work (or hard-worker?), diligence, unpretentiousness, prudence, patience, percept of responsibility

    Adjectives with negative meaning:
    anxiety, stress (any difference between anxiety and stress?), shyness, low self-esteem

    Could you please tell me if some of them sound bad to you?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help

    Best Regards
    Alex

    None of these are adjectives; they're all nouns. Try 'hard-working, diligent, unpretentious', etc.)

    Adjectives with negative meaning:
    anxiety, stress (any difference between anxiety and stress? - There are technical differences; nothing that would matter in a list of self attributes though.), shyness, low self-esteem
    None of these are adjectives either. Try 'anxious, stressed ...'

    Could you please tell me if some of them sound bad to you?

    What do you mean by sounding bad? You'd need to use them in a sentence first. I don't understand what "percept of responsibility" means.

    I tried to express that I am responsible. If i right responsibility (alone) I do not think it will make sense.

    I would like to thank you again for your feedback
