kindness

Here is my best explanation:

'generosity' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'types accepting needs intermittently' is the wordplay.
'types' becomes 'kinds' (I've seen this before**).
'accepting' is an insertion indicator.
'intermittently' means one should take alternating letters.
The alternate letters of 'needs' are 'nes'.
'kinds' placed around 'nes' is 'KINDNESS'.

'of' is the link.
