Studying and Creating Characters

Study 16 Personality Styles  and those around you if you wish to study or create characters. Get a notepad and write down personality traits and associated behaviours. Think of yourself as a Psychologist who is examining patients or an Ecologist who is reviewing the environment. Below is an example that will help you figure things out.

Listen to the song “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid”. Just like me, Ariel is an ENFP; and, thus she is the most critical character (factor) in this fairytale. It doesn’t take more than one song to figure out how an ENFP behaves or thinks. That’s how every personality type has some strengths or weaknesses that make them shine no matter what. Just like me, Ariel likes keeping memorable objects (thingamabobs), reading books, dancing, and connecting and falling in love with people. Inside our innocent minds, little things become very significant; such as, the gadgets or pins that a friend offered ten years ago. Another similarity between us is that we both easily fall for natural elements like sand, fire, sea, and humans. In addition, we both instinctively know how to help people think and react properly; but, when the time is right, both of us fight back with whatever we have got on her hands. Just like me, Ariel defines the world around her through her intelligence, wit, and courage; at the same time, we are both outliers (different). That’s how, we always keeps wishing that we want to be “part of the world” that has already accepted or rejected us.

You see what I mean!
