Character Traits Meme by pichu4850 Character Traits Meme by pichu4850
Edit: Hey everyone. There's been a lot of disagreement in how I chose to categorize these traits. By no means are all traits strictly negative or positive, good or bad, nor are all traits strictly opposite to each other despite the fact I've written them as such. 

As of 09/28/2015, I have retitled the columns as simply "trait" and "opposite trait." That being said, I apologize for any offense or dissatisfaction I've caused. This was all very subjective, and high-school-aged-me put forth my best effort to put together a meme like this. It's been a few years since its creation, and even I disagree with how I worded and formatted the traits in the past. 

Please feel free to manipulate this as you see fit, or even create and share an improved version of your own

--

You may:
Print this out.
Repeat this as many times as you wish.
Add on your own characteristics.
Modify the characteristics to your preferences.

Take away or add on more character slots.
Share this on another website.

But whatever you do, please link back to this original deviation so that others who are interested may also use it! Here's another character balance sheet meme to further your development goals by Fyuvix

Don't be afraid to ask me any questions :) Unfortunately I am rather inactive now so I apologize for any late replies.

I'd take this to a rivalry between 2 Characters who disagree on almost everything

Actually, in my programming of a little character utility, I had been looking for a lengthy list of traits to use. Whether or not this is an exhaustive list of traits and opposite-traits, I cannot say; but I do know this is quite a lot more developed than some character-traits lists I've seen.

Does permission extend to using these traits as a basis for character-creation and management software? (kept free, of course...)

Edit:
Although looking at this chart/meme, it looks like some of it could be organized maybe a little better; some trait/opposite pairs could be "grouped" into sections. A few are descriptive of physical attributes (appearance, physique, etc.), and the rest are variations of mental or psychological attributes, which may further be organized/grouped. A small remainder are entirely subjective upon who is doing the categorizing; while I might consider myself a highly logical and efficient worker, another person might call me consider me inefficient because I occasionally pause to analyze whether a task can be done in a more efficient manner.

Thank you for comments as well as your questions. I of course, don't own any mentioned "traits" as they are not really even anyone's to own, in a way ;) so you can of course use this to guide your project. I've mentioned time and time again in my description that the traits are by no means comprehensive or optimally categorized so I welcome you to categorize and edit them as they see fit to their needs.

why is being introverted negative?
Reply
:iconmiikcarton:
miIkcarton Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2015  Student Digital Artist
because sometimes it can be. There is necessary to be a balance between introversion and extroversion otherwise it can often be unhealthy.
I'm not saying that it is, but it's certainly not a positive trait because often introverts hide themselves away or are shy, which can lead to them being lonely or sad.

It's not. I added a disclaimer at the bottom of the image and in my description regarding this but it looks like as long as I have them labeled as such, it'll always be a bad thing :/
