Character Fear Reference Sheet

The second addition to my Character Reference Series. I was going to do good characteristics first, but when I was working on a character, which I may or may not post, after I had given my character fears that are unique and tie into their history, I got stumped on common flaws that would make them relatable and bring humor to the story. Tell me what 'ya think and whether this helped or not.

Character Flaws :
Good Characteristics:
Character Hobbies:

Update: So recently I discovered that these lists that I made when I was 12 became actually pretty popular, especially on places like Pinterest. That was kind of weird, and I'm really glad that you guys liked these. I may make some updated (as in, better) versions in the future, but for now I'm going to leave this here but be a bit stricter in the sharing.

I knew I'd find some good fears for a new character I'm making. She's gonna be afraid of snakes(Well rattlesnakes to be me precise since ordinary snakes are fine), losing loved ones and I don't know whether to choose between bugs or bees. I might go bugs.

If you ever want to make a part two, or for people who couldn't find a fear, I'm terrified of ants. *shudder*

Yes! I fínd Ants creepy too, but I never found anybody who was scared of them.

Thank you! I just figured out my hero's fear and it not only made him much more real, it also explained why he keeps doing the things he's doing.  Hey - I don't control my characters; I just write down what they do. ;-)

I like your lists.  They have so many things that I would never think about using.  I plan on using this while developing characters for my new story.

I'm afraid of gaping eyeballs, public speaking, over-asserting myself and sharp things impaling through me, especially knives. :)
My character is afraid of emotional abandonment, horses, violence and anything that flies.
