I’m one of those writers who enjoys interviewing their characters, so the idea of getting a free, scientifically-based personality evaluation for them excites me to no end. What a way to get inside their heads. So here’s an online personality evaluation tool you might find useful. It’s meant for you and me, but it occurred to me that I could use this to get a bead on my book characters. Basically, you would answer the questions on the website the way your character would answer them, et voila! You get a nice little summary of who your character is, what motivates them, and how they rate along various personality dimensions. Don’t forget to save or do a screen grab because otherwise the system resets itself when you leave the page.
Have fun analyzing your characters!
