101 Character Profiles

Author: Harold F. Burks
Publisher: Author House
ISBN: 9781467805643
Release Date: 2006-07-07
Genre: Self-Help

101 Character Profiles When readers respond to characters by declaring they are believable and comprehensible they are saying the story actors appear true-to-life. That is, given the influences of inherited and environmental factors they act as expected. In addition, the observed conduct closely resembles the culturally anticipated and described actions of persons enclosed within a particular personality silhouette (e.g. a costumed clown is supposed to behave as a clown). In this essential reference guide, Dr. Harold F. Burks assists writers to make story characters more realistic by: Presenting a socially acceptable definition of each personality type Outlining biological, family, and cultural influences, leading to the formation of personality make ups Providing the behavioral symptoms shown by a personality style When appropriate, describing differing symptoms shown by the two sexes When appropriate, demonstrating trait differences in children compared to adults When appropriate, explaining divergences in life outcomes if a behavior is shown to a mild or severe degree When appropriate, offering both positive and negative outcomes emanating from demonstrated symptoms Offering internal dialogue examples of individuals contained in a personality profile Supplying suggestions how symptomatic characters may be integrated into a story plot Readers of this comprehensive and wide-ranging book are offered hundreds of down-to-earth suggestions for dealing with characters who exhibit unique backgrounds, current behaviors, and internal ruminations about self-image, feelings and attitudes.
