Everything that defines your character from the inside out, all those aspects and personality tidbits, helps to fill out these dimensions, giving a fuller picture of the personality.
It's easy to rely on the outward things to let you know who a character is. After all, that's how we get to know people in real life. But.
If you're struggling to breathe life into a character, they're probably lacking in one of the dimensions, and you need to go deeper.
It doesn't matter if you're looking at your character's stuff, or their situation, or their backstory. That's outward, not part of who they really are. There's more to them. We have our own temperaments by the time we're three months old (or earlier)...
We have mental, emotional, and social predispositions, not dependent on anything outside of us. The dimensions can help you look deeper to find them.
Plus there's a sweet mini-course coming soon to guide you deeper.
Don't for get to comment with your questions. It's a HUGE favor for me.
