What are the signs of piety according to Imam Baqir (AS)?

It is narrated from Imam Baqir (AS) who wrote in a letter to Saad Khair:

 What are the signs of piety according to Imam Baqir (AS)?

Truly, Allah (SWT) protects the servant of God by piety (Taqwa) against whatever is hidden from wisdom, and through piety, removes his/her blindness and ignorance. And through piety Noah (AS) and his companions in the ship survived, and by piety Saleh (AS) and his companions survived lightening [1]. Imam Baqir (AS) also explained about signs of pious people: There are signs for pious people and they are known by those signs; these signs include: truthfulness, trustworthiness, keeping promises, inappropriate mixing with men and women, generosity, good temper, brave and patient, seeking knowledge, seeking things/deeds that take the human being closer to God [2].
