Complex character personalities or simple character personalities? Which do you like more? 

80%
57 deviants said Complex personalities: Not bond to one significant trait all the time, more realistic. Could be hard to keep track of.
20%
14 deviants said Simple personalities: Bond to one defining trait, even if the character develops, the trait is still dominant. Easier to keep track of but may be boring.

6-9 traits is my ideal. I have the tendancy to write more though :'D

ngl if it's OCs I prefer simple personalities. Both for myself and others. Unless someone's turning their characters into like... a franchise/series, I don't care for reading in-depth stuff about them and I won't remember it anyway.

Oh true! I find it hard to get into other people's OCs unless they display them with simple personalities at first. Then when and if I am interested, I go deeper into the character's story XP
Sometimes when I think too hard as I look at my OCs now, I'm like
"they are a fricking mess" >A>

'Cause of how complex they are ;;

I love complex personalites but I am horrible at creating them myself ><
Most of mine are simple but I'm trying to define them more and more!
(A lot of mine suffer from to many positive and not enough negative. I'm trying to find laws that make sence with their characters but I can never find any that I think will work and aren't hypocritical to their other traits)

Ah yeah, that's quite hard when you're first starting off :'D I remember Alvis once being just a really boring, dull, edgy guy who plays the violin in creepy places... for reasons.
Now he's a huge amalgamation of "I don't know how to explain him in one sentence" lol

I definitely think my characters have been through a lot of bad things and are now in the lighter part of their story. I don't know how things weigh between the good and bad experiences they've had, but I really like to make them suffer omg OTL

At least I'm not the only one!! Your character personalities are amazing!
I still love and use the one you created for Zydan!
He's scared of bunnies! How do you think of something so adorable!!

Ahaha, in the past, I think I was going to make him go into some alien planet with scary bunny creatures and freak out. Or maybe eat some bad shrooms and imagine his terrifying boss as a bunny XD
Kids
don't do shrooms

I really love complex character personalities, because, like you said, they're more realistic, so it helps me form a tighter bond with them :la:

Awesome! I like them too but I don't think they have to be TOO complex for me to like them o3o
If they develop, I'll still enjoy them though maybe not as much as one with a detailed personality

Not sure if my statements are correct with the options, but it's what I heard and how I understand them o3o
If you wish to correct, feel free XD
