Requisites of a Good Surveyor
"A thorough knowledge of the theory of surveying and skill in its practice are the first requisites of the surveyor; but, upon the evidence of employers themselves, it is also true that traits of character are far more potent factors in the success of the surveyor or engineer than is technical knowledge or skill.  Therefore, it should be stated with all emphasis, that while mastering the theory and practice of surveying, the student will do himself a great benefit if he also develop traits of character and habits of mind which will be advantageous to him whatever may be his later work.

He should maintain the attitude of the scientist, that no result is trustworthy until every reasonable test of its accuracy has been applied.
He should be realiable.
He should be of sound judgement.
He should possess initiative and should attack a problem with resourcefulness and energy.
He should be thorough, not content with his work until it has been finished in a workmanlike fashion.
He should be able to think without confusion, and to reason logically without prejudice.
He should be of good temper, thoughtful to those coming under his direction, commanding the respect of his asociates, and watchful of the interests of his employer."
