I treat little upsets as minor issues and don't freak out.

When I fail at something it's almost never a surprise.

I'm autonomous with transitions between classes, activities or tasks.

I'm okay with criticism and respond to it calmly.

I don't need to be prompted to use a calendar, to do list or agenda

I can put away distractions when working (phone, TV, music, etc).

If asked to get something from my room I haven't used in a bit, I'd find it in a few minutes.

I'm quite good at estimating how long a task, project, event will take.

I can take a step back and see myself rationally in any given situation.

So, you have a bunch of numbers.
One set for you, and another for the person you're reading about.
