One thing that especially stands out about Viv's skating is his ability to perform very delicate as well as sharp moving tricks. Tricks that require a quick whipping action while travelling up or at obstacles at a formidable speed.

Well, one thing for certain, Viv is a highly receptive and good listener. He has the type of listening ability which is the hallmark of maturity.
While intelligence generally involves the ability to originate, understand, and apply information - 'brain capacities' - maturity refers to the link between intellect and emotion; the brain and the heart. Here, receptivity plays a pivotal role.
In a nutshell, here's how receptivity fosters this aspect of maturity: one who can't listen to others, can't hear himself either. That is, his emotions are not easily roused by his own thoughts. The effective listener, however, who is moved by another’s words, finds that his emotions are also receptive to the contents of his own mind.
