Not being shy or arrogant in seeking knowledge, and this is why Aa'ishah (ra) said: "How excellent are the women of the Ansaar, shyness/modesty does not prevent them from understanding the religion."[9]

And Umm Sulaim (ra) said: "O Messenger of Allaah, Allaah is not ashamed of the truth, so is it necessary for a women to make ghusl when she has a wet dream?" The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: "If she sees the fluid."[10]

And Mujaahid said: "The shy person and the arrogant one will not learn the knowledge."[11]

And finally:

Acting upon the knowledge, the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: "A servants two feet will not move on the Day of Judgement until he is questioned about four (things): His youth, how he spent it, his knowledge, how he acted upon it, his wealth, how he earned it and how he spent it and his body, how he used/wasted it."[12]

And he (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) also said: "A man will be brought on the Day of Judgement and will be thrown into the Fire and his entrails will pour out. It will be said: 'Did you not used to order the good and forbid the evil? He will say: I used to command you with good and not do it myself and I used to forbid you from evil and do it myself."[13]
