There are two qualities which constitute a civilized person. The first quality is a sense of self-worthiness which is innate in every living creature with the exception of prenatal violence experienced by the fetus while within the expectant mother-to-be.

The second quality is the development of self-esteem which is garnered from the successful engagement of performing service in the community, which begins with performing services in the family during childhood. Self-worthiness offers a love-based sense of self value and self-esteem offers a love-based sense of self value in the community.
