Attributes of a Hero

I have come up with five different criteria determined to be the most important attributes of a sporting hero, and they are used in the rating of heroes. As part of the analysis, and to rank the importance of the five criteria, you can tell me how important each of the criteria is using the survey below. See also the discussion about What Makes a Hero.

Here are my five criteria of being a hero, and a description of what they mean. Use the stars to rate each point. Click on the stars to give a rating from 1 to 5 on how important you think each criteria is for a hero, using the rating scale. Answer to the best of your knowledge. The averages will be shown after you vote.
