Top Ten Tuesday: Character Traits I Love

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ve been looking forward to this prompt ever since Jana first released it. It will be interesting to see how many of the traits I picked will show up on other people’s lists, too.

1. Mischevious

See also: Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series. I could have read a whole book on their escapades alone.

2. Sincere

It’s always nice to read about characters whose words match their actions.

3. Courageous

Honestly, who wouldn’t want to read about someone who was brave in a scary situation?

4. Kind

Our world needs more kindness.

5. Studious

Is it possible to learn too many things? I sure don’t think so.

6. Diligent

This is something that isn’t valued as much as it should be in modern times. There’s something to be said for pushing forward even if the plot has yet to notice your hard work, much less reward you for it.

7. Playful

No one is ever too old to play.

8. Anxious

This might seem like a slightly unusual trait to look forward to discovering in a character. As someone who has a bit of social anxiety myself, it can be soothing to meet characters who are in the same boat.

9. Discouraged

You can learn a lot about someone based on how they respond to losing out on something they really wanted. If it happens so many times that they begin to lose hope, things can get even more interesting.

10. Candid

I like it when characters, and people in general, are perfectly honest about their feelings.



  1. Great list! Discouraged is a really interesting one, and I agree that we should definitely value diligence more.

  2. Mischievous and Discouraged are great picks. I think I like characters who are both like and unlike me in many ways.

  3. I like that you put anxious, I like a character that shares traits like that as well since it’s so relatable.

  4. Great list!! I like the way you’ve included anxious, I like this too especially when they learn to somewhat overcome it, not in a magical woo I’m not anxious anymore kind of way but more in a I’m anxious, Im feeling the anxiety but I’m doing it anyway kind of thing- finding what you’re made of.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your list is great, so many different traits to what I listed but all good ones as well. I really like discouraged, wish I had thought to add that to my list.

  6. Great list! Some I hadn’t thought of.

  7. We both have Courageous and Kind(ness) on our lists. I also like how you included Anxious – I am an anxious person too and agree it is good to see characters we can see ourselves in and really empowering if they still succeed.

  8. Mischievous characters are fun, and kindness too. I love a truly nice, kind character who cares more about others. I agree about anxiety also- it’s nice to see that addressed well.

  9. Nice list! We definitely need more kindness in the world!

  10. I like that you included anxiety in your list — it really be so wonderful to read someone experiencing the same thing as the readers (like me, because yeah, I have my issues with anxiety too)

    • You and me both! If you find any good books about characters with anxiety, I hope you’ll blog about them.

  11. Courageous and kind; two of the best character traits, both of which go a long way in endearing them. Sincerity is another excellent trait! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland last week.
