144 Examples of Character

 , August 06, 2020 updated on July 14, 2021
Character, or character traits, are persistent patterns of thinking and behavior that are adopted by an individual. These relate to the moral qualities of a person that can be cultivated in positive or negative directions. In antiquity, positive character traits were viewed as a middle path between extremes. This can be seen in the works of Aristotle who described virtue, or character strengths, as a moderate path between lack and excess. The following are common examples of character based on this classical model.
