"Good, traditional" traits

I find that "good" and "traditional" don't exactly go hand in hand.

If it makes sense, it's not called tradition. It's called common sense. If it's called tradition, it means that at some level, it doesn't make sense. It's being practiced despite it.

It does not make a person good if they follow imperatives that violate sense. It makes them compliant.

Being compliant makes sense, to an extent. However, being overly compliant makes you a tool. At best, you're a tool for nonsense. At worst, you're a tool for perpetuation of suffering and hardship.
