Excellent Writer's resource,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Writer's Guide to Character Traits (Paperback)
This excellent writer's resource could also be used by non-writers looking for an overview of personality traits.
It lists personality types and contains lists of behaviours exhibited by, for example:
Children of certain ages
Types of criminals
Victims of domestic abuse
It is these lists I have used most often in my writing.
If you were looking for crucial information for a main character, (for example your detective in a series of books has asperger's syndrome) you would want to do more extensive research, but it's ideal for minor characters and as a starting point for ideas - why is this character so withdrawn? Why can't this one control his spending?
