TMST: Personality Traits I Love/Hate in Characters

What personality traits do you love/hate in a character? 

Eee! I've been excited about this one! I for sure have some strong feelings on things I love and hate about characters. 


  • Dumb characters who do dumb things for no reason. 
  • Overly perfect characters. NO ONE IS PERFECT DARN IT! *shakes fist*
  • Overly jealous characters. Okay. There is a clear line in the sand for this. I like a little jealousy when it is called for it. But being obnoxious about it? Naw. 
  • Overly protective. I like protective characters, but there is a fine line. C'mon. 
  • Being 2D and boring. Get a personality...
  • Whiney! 
  • Tough/strong-willed characters. 
  • Complex personalities. The number 1 example is Iago from 'Othello'. He has remained one of my favorite characters. So complex!
  • Smart and thinking before acting. I love when characters actually take a second to think before reacting. 
  • Protective. Another one that there is a fine line in the sand. I love when characters are protective, but there can be too much of a good thing
  • Funny! I love a hilarious character, especially when needed. 
  • Serious. I love the serious male characters!  Someone's gotta warm them up ;)

Nods to the hated types and happy to remember several of those lovely character types.

Oh hey! I recognize that team. Neat that you saw the new arena and had a fun time for your friends birthday. :)

Great lists. I agree with most of them. Looks like you had fun at the game. Live hockey is much better than on tv.

Thanks Carol!! And I agree!
