The competences of a researcher

Each year we have to fill in forms to show the university our results and developments of last year. And each year this form seems to be larger. Now I have to fill in my Personal Development Plan, listing the competences that I focussed on last year. These competences should be the competences that are fitting my profile, and surprisingly the only competences that are required for my profile are the 'conceptual ability', 'self-confidence', 'presentation' and 'drive'. Things like 'analytical ability', 'inventiveness', 'learning ability', 'self-reflectance' etc etc are not in the list.
