    * A large selection of attributes to choose from when building a personality profile. Each entry lists possible causes for why a trait might emerge, along with associated attitudes, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions

    * Real character examples from literature, film, or television to show how an attribute drives actions and decisions, influences goals, and steers relationships

    * Advice on using positive traits to immediately hook readers while avoiding common personality pitfalls

    * Insight on human needs and morality, and how each determines the strengths that emerge in heroes and villains alike

    * Information on the key role positive attributes play within the character arc, and how they’re vital to overcoming fatal flaws and achieving success
