What is a trait?

What is a trait? Here is my definition:


A trait is an attribute that does not consistently exist among members of the same group


I believe that traits are what make individuals unique. For example, brown eyes are a trait because eye color varies from person to person. What makes something a trait is the existence of members in the same group without the attribute.
