Well, I’d agree with the stuff in Jacen’s last post, and perhaps add a few more:
– How to think. I don’t mean how to work out the square root of 345 in your head, rather how to think in a way thats going to get you out of trouble if you are in trouble; and otherwise solve problems. I am continually amazed by the number of people who are incapable of thinking in a logical manner. For example, I am a software developer and the company I work for also monitors (and fixes) the batch runs for large retail companies. So if we get a problem with a program that runs during the batch, it has to be diagnosed and fixed right then and there, or diagnosed and recognised as something that can wait. I also tend to train most of the new people, and it is SO hard to teach them not to follow written instructions all the time, but actually use their noggins.
– Hand in hand with the ability to be logical is the ability to use intuition. Jedi need to learn to trust their intuition. This is also hard. It might sound funny that logic and intuition can go hand in hand but they do combine very effectively. I usually run with the logic until I get an intuitive flash.
– How to focus
– How to be aware of many things at once.
All of these are skills that are not directly related to self-awareness or Force sensitivity, but they are very useful as foundation skills.
