To me, the most underrated life skill is humility - not getting over your head with knowledge, wealth, power, gadgets, lifestyle...whatever. Some other big underrated life skills, according to the internet hive mind are:

1. Persistence
"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense."
- Winston Churchill

2. The ability to comprehend poorly-written (or poorly-expressed) material

3. The ability to take advice and to weigh it accordingly

4. Choosing to remain silent

5. Loving somebody enough to let them win

6. Quitting when it is the right time

7. Flexibility - to move away from the place you consider home if need be, to move on after a broken relationship, to adapt to change or emergencies in your homelife and at work, to negotiate compromise in difficult situations, to learn new skills when required, to never say "I can't do that because I've never done it before".
