"As well as" is in the right position, but you need to add "a" before "good attitude". A person has "a good attitude".

There is nothing wrong with your version, per se, but you too need to add the word "a" before "good attitude".

By the way, only my personal opinion, but "init" or "innit" is a really irritating phrase! :)

Sorry if it aroused bad feelings in you. That was not my intention. I just wanted to put some weight off my fingers (too much typing today).

A characteristic is defined as a distinguishing feature or quality.

Can you say honesty and good attitude are characteristics of a person? Or the qualities of a person?
