What Is Your Biggest Character Flaw?
Humans possess flaws. All the world’s a stage and we are the main characters of our narrative. As such, we all have character flaws. If you think you’re an exception to the psychological rule, arrogance fits your detestable description. Common character flaws other than being arrogant include jealousy, greed, anger/a violent temper, irrational fear, and low self-esteem.
If you’re truly unsure which one of the fatal five applies, you’ve come to the right place. This quiz performs an internal literary analysis without the pompous prose of Ivy League scholars. We’ve created part of your narrative’s world by introducing scenarios that create potential conflicts. You continue the multiple-ending plotline by responding with how you’d react. Your choices determine the nature of your character flaw. The endings differ, but all bumpy roads lead to a dead-end, marked by a fatal flaw. It only takes a few minutes to reach your doomsday destination.
A character flaw manipulates a character's life within fictional works. A great character flaw deepens the reader's ability to relate to a character. The ability to provide dimension increases investment in the hero or villain.
Minor flaws punctuate a character's individuality but do not greatly impact the story being told. For example, Superman's moral character trait is embodying an overwhelming sense of goodness and protection for humanity. Geralt of Rivia volunteers his disdain for going through portals, even though it doesn't impact his journey in the Witcher tales.
On the other side of the spectrum, a fatal flaw spells directly affects many beloved heroes and leads in stories. Fatal flaws live up to their lethal namesake by accentuating a personality defect. For example, in Breaking Bad, Walter White's hubris prevents him from accepting charity that would pay for his cancer treatments. This leads to him navigating the self-centered underworld that ultimately brings White and his family structure to an infamous demise.
