How should I outline my personal qualities and skills?

The aim of the personal statement is to represent you at your best. However, this does not require the listing of all of your good qualities and skills. It sounds a lot more trustworthy and natural if you share your personal experience. Doing this you both make a good impression and motivate the way in which you had acquired the mentioned skills.
