Quackast 391 - personality mix group dynamics

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Sept. 11, 2018


This Quackcast was based on an idea from Banes. We chat about designing a group of characters with complementary temperaments. In Banes' own words:
“I like the idea of the line between a logical, left brained person and a creative, right brained person, crossed with a spectrum of a more active, extroverted, action taking temperament and a more nurturing, introverted type.

So if you cross the lines, you get four quadrants, just like in that Tvtropes link.

One type will be passive or nurturing and logical
One will be action-taking and logical/practical
One will be more creative/flexible and extroverted/action oriented,
and One will be creative/flexible and more passive and introverted.

Put these four characters together and you've got a pretty well-rounded cast of temperaments!”

This way you get a good personality mix with your characters which helps you make interactions far more interesting, people won't simply all react the some way to something and through those interaction you develop character.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Somnia. Creeping threat, urban cool, dynamic action! This music gets things started. It’s on the move and there’s no stopping it. 80’s action drama with 2000’s sophistication!

Oh and on the mozzarella scale, I'm way closer to fried mozzarella sticks than buffalo mozzarella.

I like the concept of the 4 quadrants of temperament that Tantz was talking about. The idea that behaviour is governed by the balance of physical elements in the body is neat.
