Wars not make one great.

What is Greatness in Jedi (not just TOTJO) standards? Adherence to doctrine? A fit moral compass? What traits do you feel leads to greatness in a Jedi?

I don't know, I've never really looked at someone and said "That's a Jedi with Greatness". I mean, I have traits I value and try my best to emulate, and there are Jedi I greatly respect. Would this be the same?

It's certainly close enough. What do you value in a Jedi?

The first thing that comes to my mind is courage. To he willing to risk, and to fail, and to go again. Dedication: effort and determination over long stretched of time.

Perhaps progress, if 'Jedi' means something then progress in being Jedi. What would be great would be the body of experience associated to it being 'large' and coherent as a result of that progress.
