Among the defining features, I believe, are listening, observing, bearing 
witness, joining in, trying to help the old lady who seemed lost and only spoke 
Russian, having people like you respond when I write.  Thank you.  The 
opposite...is probably...some forced march of deans appearing over the rise and 
that blasted woman who keeps calling from "Cardmember Services."  She reminds 
me of "Motorway Services" when they all belonged to Trust House Forte, Spittle 
Chef and other such names.
