Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.
My biology lecturer just gave a lecture regarding the basic principles of biology. He said that a scientific attitude was very important and gave a list of characteristics which he said were very important. He focused on one in particular that many of us would have put much farther down the list of importance... What do you guys think???

I think flexibility is most important. When being a scientist, you're always at the cutting edge of the field and many times, you have to adapt to change to have any real progress.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

That's true, although I picked interest. I picked this as I think in order to understand, appreciate and work with your surroundings you need to enjoy it in the first place.

I think interest is important, because before you discover something, you will probably fail a lot of times. It is important not to lose faith

Objectivity is a myth. It exists in the same place as the exact iteration of pi. Its a lovely ideal to aspire to, but its unattainable. Best thing is to identify your areas of subjectivity and know you have them and how they affect your world-view.
Nirvana is also a myth. Yet those considered the "best in the field of Buddhism" never cease to attain it.
