Top Ten Character Traits I Love

(submitted by Hannah @ Books Life and Other Oddities)

Because I like different traits based on gender, I’m splitting my character traits into 5 for women and 5 for men:

In female characters, I like the following characters traits:

  1. Tough (physically/mentally/emotionally)
  2. Smart
  3. Compassionate
  4. Cooperative
  5. Brave (but not stupid or reckless)

Most of my favourite female characters embrace most, if not all of, these traits.

In male characters, I like the following characteristics:

  1. Loyal
  2. Considerate
  3. Sensitive
  4. Smart
  5. Supportive (specifically in reference to males being comfortable supporting a female leader)

I think you’ll find most of my book boyfriends have most of, if not all of these traits.
