Positive Personal Noun Glossary

Positive Adjectives to describe people

Positive Abstract Nouns (ex. 'Wonderfulness')

Yours since 2013

The finest nouns in the English language to describe everyone from A to Z. A resource for everyone from Academicians to Eulogists including teachers, tutors, positive psychologists, consultants, coaches, students, writers and all those who want to improve their, and others', lives.  Perfect for describing friends as well as describing self.

Nouns are considered to be neutral inasmuch as any one of them could be potentially either good or bad.  The nouns listed here have inherent 'normally good' qualities.  They're good in absence of an external moral bias.  The meanings of some of these nouns even become wholly negated with the imposition of an unnatural negative bias (ie. bad Optimist)
