Minor Characters // Personality Types | Character Series

Waddup Savi Crew!

Last week, I continued my Character series where I used four of my own characters—from my Episode story Manhattan Prep—to demonstrate the strength and weaknesses of the 16 different personality types utilising the 16Personalities profiles. If you missed that blog post, feel free to check it out here.

This week, I will be featuring another four of my own characters who display four more personality types. These (and the ones featured next week and following week) will be minor characters. Today’s minor characters: witty Cassie; sporty Leah and her brooding older brother, Logan; and budding fashionista, Mallory. Once again, a quick disclaimer: The personality profiles listed below were sourced from the official Myers-Briggs Foundation website: https://www.16personalities.com/personality-types

Cassie is a natural comedian and proud half African-American, half Native-American who lives with her mother, Loni and older sisters, Nicole and Emily (she has never met her father). She is thick-skinned, resilient and always has a clever comeback. She tends to see the lighter side of any situation. She is slightly boy-crazy and believes alcohol is a necessity when it comes to having a good time. Cassie is an ESTP who would rather crack practical jokes than crack open a book.

ESTP (Extroverted + Sensing + Thinking + Perceiving) – “Entrepreneur” | Laughing and entertaining with a blunt and earthy humour. | Strengths: Bold; rational and practical; original; perceptive; direct; sociable. | Weaknesses: Insensitive; impatient; risk-prone; unstructured; may miss the bigger picture; defiant.

Leah is a sassy Latina and candid sports junkie who lives with her mother, Claudia; father, Rogelio; grandmother, Hilda and older brother, Logan (who she always competes with). She loves gossip as much as she loves food and doesn’t like to be told she cannot do something. She plays soccer (her favourite sport) and hopes to make it to the World Cup and later manage her own team when she gets older. Leah is an ISTJ who wants to make the Manhattan Prep varsity soccer team.

ISTJ (Introverted + Sensing + Thinking + Judging) – “Logistician” | Logisticians’ dedication is an excellent quality, allowing them to accomplish much. | Strengths: Honest and direct; strong-willed and dutiful; very responsible; calm and practical; create and enforce order; Jacks-of-all-trades. | Weaknesses: Stubborn; insensitive; always by the book; judgemental; often unreasonably blame themselves.

Logan lives with his mother, Claudia; father, Rogelio; grandmother, Hilda and younger sister, Leah. His best friend is Dario who he has known since the second grade. He has a nickname (Logie Bear) which Leah calls him because he was a chubby kid. Brooke later develops a crush on him when he helps Leah make the soccer team and stands up for feminine rights against the chauvinistic Manhattan Prep coach. Logan is an ENFP who encourages Dario to get tutored by Kate.

ENFP (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Campaigner” | Campaigners are fiercely independent, and crave freedom. | Strengths: Curious; observant; energetic and enthusiastic; excellent communicators; know how to relax; very popular and friendly. | Weaknesses: Poor practical skills; find it difficult to focus; overthink things; get stressed easily; highly emotional; independent to a fault.

Mallory is an aspiring fashion enthusiast and assertive Vietnamese-American who lives with her mother, Kim; stepfather, Joe and younger brother, Mason. She likes to match her hair and eye colour with her clothing. Most boys attracted to Mallory are usually intimidated by her tall stature and ultra-feminist ways. Conversation-wise, she is long-winded and has no filter with regard to inequality and racial injustice. Mallory is an INFP who is seeking inspiration for her latest fashion idea.

INFP (Introverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Mediator” | Mediators have a talent for self-expression and revealing their beauty. | Strengths: Idealistic; seek and value harmony; open-minded and flexible; very creative; passionate and energetic; dedicated and hard-working. | Weaknesses: Too idealistic; too altruistic; impractical; dislike dealing with data; take things personally; difficult to get to know.

Be sure to tune in next week where I will be giving examples of four more personality types with four of my own characters and highlighting each types’ strengths and weaknesses once again using the 16Personalities profiles (basically Myers-Briggs 2.0).

Anyways, I’m rambling again which means it’s time to sign off… Toodles for now. And remember, no matter where you live, take a little time to enjoy the island life! Happy Writing!

16Personalities // Personality Types | Character Series

Waddup Savi Crew!

Last week, I continued my Character series where I went through the 16 different personality types using the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (or MBTI). If you missed that blog post, feel free to check it out here. This week, we’ll be discussing strengths and weaknesses, utilising the 16Personalities profiles using my own characters as examples.

Since there are 16 personality types and I won’t just be stating the profiles but rather discussing actual character development and traits, I decided to split this section into four parts each featuring four different characters, i.e. 4 x 4 = 16.

I will be using my Episode story Manhattan Prep that I used when discussing Character Arcs during Preptober last October. If you missed that blog post, feel free to check it out here. There is important background information on the main character and the love interest that I won’t be repeating here so I’d recommend reading that blog before this one (if you haven’t already). I’ll be using the main character / protagonist, Kate; love interest / reason, Dario; contagonist, Brooke; and antagonist, Jada of the story.

A quick disclaimer: The personality profiles listed below were sourced from the official Myers-Briggs Foundation website: https://www.16personalities.com/personality-types

Kate is a London transfer who gets to attend Manhattan Prep through their elite scholarship programme. She comes from a family of geniuses: Her late mother, Krystal—who died when she was five—was a MENSA member; her father, Kevin is a CPA and her brother, Kyle is a budding scientist. Kate herself is a five-time Mathlete award winner. But she doesn’t only want to be known for her smarts, more specifically, she hopes to drop the childhood nickname associated with it, “Brainiac Bishop”. Kate is an INFJ (I know, the main character has the same personality type as me—go figure! Call it a happy accident.)

INFJ (Introverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Judging) – “Advocate” | Advocates have an inborn sense of idealism and morality. | Strengths: Creative; insightful; inspiring and convincing; decisive; determined and passionate; altruistic. | Weaknesses: Sensitive; extremely private; perfectionistic; always need to have a cause; can burn out easily.

Dario is a popular jock who is lauded by the masses for his good looks, natural athletic ability and renowned family name—there is an entire Kingsley wing at Manhattan Prep. He comes from a family of old money: His mother, Veronica is an international supermodel while his father, Dalton and grandfather, Salvatore are estate royalty. An only child and the lone heir to the Kingsley dynasty, Dario would rather play football. He hopes to follow his athletic dreams and make his own life decisions. Dario is an ISFP (which you would never expect the popular jock to be an introvert but the profile fits him perfectly, believe me.)

ISFP (Introverted + Sensing + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Adventurer” | Adventurers enjoy upsetting traditional expectations. | Strengths: Charming; sensitive to others; imaginative; passionate; curious; artistic. | Weaknesses: Fiercely independent; unpredictable; easily stressed; overly competitive; fluctuating self-esteem.

Brooke is a wealthy and entitled diva who wants to snag all the cute boys, including Dario. She also comes from a family of old money: Her mother, Alison is a famous plastic surgeon—rumour has it, Brooke got a nose job for her sixteenth birthday—while her father, Alan is a tech mogul billionaire. She has a brother, Bryce, who she barely acknowledges and can be quite bossy, shallow and self-centred. She is always trotting around with her equally pampered white Pomeranian, Buffy. Brooke is an ESFP (which would explain her larger-than-life personality; for her, life is a performance and the world is her best audience.)

ESFP (Extroverted + Sensing + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Entertainer” | Entertainers love the spotlight, and all the world’s a stage. | Strengths: Bold; original; aesthetics and showmanship; practical; observant; excellent people skills. | Weaknesses: Sensitive; conflict-averse; easily bored; poor long-term planners; unfocused.

Jada is an overachiever: head cheerleader, class president and honour roll student who has been crushing on Dario since they were international elementary classmates. She comes from a family of new money: Her mother, Jade is a registered nurse—now retired, her father, Simon is an architect / landscape developer who just won the lottery and her twin sister, Simone also attends Manhattan Prep. She has always been successful in whatever she aims for. Getting Dario for herself is no different. Jada is an ENTP (which is a perfect match for our newly elected Debate team president—which is serendipitous, I swear!)

ENTP (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Thinking + Perceiving) – “Debater” | Debater personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate. | Strengths: Knowledgeable; quick thinkers; original; excellent brain-stormers; charismatic; energetic. | Weaknesses: Very argumentative; insensitive; intolerant; can find it difficult to focus; dislike practical matters.

Be sure to tune in next week where I will be giving examples of four more personality types with four of my own characters and highlighting each types’ strengths and weaknesses once again using the 16Personalities profiles (basically Myers-Briggs 2.0).

MBTI // Personality Types | Character Series

Waddup Savi Crew!

Last week, I started my Character series where I briefly touched on the 16 different personality types. If you missed that blog post, feel free to check it out here. This week—as promised—will be more in-depth with regard to personality types, utilising the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (or MBTI).

Before we start, an end of the month update regarding my resolutions and goals for 2019, specifically the reading goals. Here is a list of the 10 books I intend to read this year:

  1. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe | C. S. Lewis
  2. Shadow Crown (Volume 1) | Kristen Martin
  3. The Architect of Elysia | Vivien Reis
  4. Twilight (Twilight Saga, Book 1) | Stephenie Meyer
  5. New Moon (Twilight Saga, Book 2) | Stephenie Meyer
  6. Eclipse (Twilight Saga, Book 3) | Stephenie Meyer
  7. Breaking Dawn (Twilight Saga, Book 4) | Stephenie Meyer
  8. The Man Who Loved Attending Funerals And Other Stories | Frank Collymore (Caribbean Writers Series)
  9. Green Days by the River | Michael Anthony (Caribbean Writers Series)
  10. The Schoolmaster | Earl Lovelace (Caribbean Writers Series)

And please, no judgement on my book choices, most of them were just sitting in my library anyways (might as well read them lolz). I am currently reading Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (FYI, one of my favourite authors which should make for an exciting read).

Intro // Personality Types | Character Series

Waddup Savi Crew!

Apologies for the late post, inspiration was a bit lacking this week, but I’ve decided to revisit my Character / Setting / Plot series where I’ll discuss what makes for a memorable character, setting, story, etc.

If you missed my previous blog post on Character, feel free to check it out here. This post, however, will be more in-depth and have a particular focus: personality. In other words, give your characters some personality.

Character is my favourite part about writing (so I apologise in advance for the long blog post lolz) and aspiring writers sometimes forget that characters are just like us — heck, some of them can be us.

Bottom-line: don’t skimp on the character details. The more realistic the character, the better the story. And what’s more realistic than personality types. We give our characters names and zodiac signs, so why not personality types.

Best part is these personality types have preset, built-in lists of the types’ strengths and weaknesses, behavioural patterns and (in the case of Myers-Briggs) which types connect on a deeper level and which types clash (i.e. immediate conflict).

There are 16 personality types — we’re gonna be here for a while — so let’s dive right in! A plethora of personality type tests exist on the internet and you do have the option to fill out the test as your character or (as I often do, since I’m lazy lolz) read through the preset information guide on each personality type and choose the one that closely matches your character.

ESTP (Extroverted + Sensing + Thinking + Perceiving) – Most fun: Unconventional, fun, gregarious, lives for here and now, problem-solver.

ESTJ (Extroverted + Sensing + Thinking + Judging) – Most forceful: Orderly and structured, sociable, opinionated, results-oriented, productive, traditional.

ESFP (Extroverted + Sensing + Feeling + Perceiving) – Most generous: Social, spontaneous, loves surprises, cuts red tape, juggles many projects, shares readily.

ESFJ (Extroverted + Sensing + Feeling + Judging) – Most harmonious: Gracious, thoughtful, lives to please, strong interpersonal skills, accomplished host / hostess.
ENTP (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Thinking + Perceiving) – Most inventive: Given to brinksmanship, tests limits, enthusiastic, innovative, argues both sides, likes challenges.

ENTJ (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Thinking + Judging) – Most commanding: Visionary, gregarious, argumentative, planner, leader, impatient with incompetence.

ENFP (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – Most optimistic: People-oriented, creative, seeks harmony, life of the party, starter (not finisher).

ENFJ (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Judging) – Most persuasive: Charismatic, idealistic, ignores unpleasantness, sees potential in others, compassionate.
ISTP (Introverted + Sensing + Thinking + Perceiving) – Most pragmatic: Observant, cool and aloof, practical, unpretentious, ready for anything.

ISTJ (Introverted + Sensing + Thinking + Judging) – Most reliable: Organised, compulsive, private, trustworthy, follows rules, practical.

ISFP (Introverted + Sensing + Feeling + Perceiving) – Most artistic: Warm, sensitive, unassuming, team player, in touch with self and nature.

ISFJ (Introverted + Sensing + Feeling + Judging) – Most loyal: Easy to collaborate with, works behind scenes, sacrifices readily, accountable.
INTP (Introverted + iNtuitive + Thinking + Perceiving) – Most conceptual: Challenges others to think, high need for competency, socially conscious, independent.

INTJ (Introverted + iNtuitive + Thinking + Judging) – Most independent: Theoretical, sceptical, needs to be competent, sees world as chess board, needs things “my way”.

INFP (Introverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – Most idealistic: Stronger personal values, seeks order and peace, creative, non-directive, reserved with people.

INFJ (Introverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Judging) – Most reflective: Reflective, introspective, quietly caring, creative, eloquent speaker / writer, visionary.

Be sure to tune in next week where I will be discussing personality types in-depth using the well-known Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (or MBTI).

The Fearless Writer Tag

Waddup Savi Crew!

As the blog post title suggests I’m gonna be doing a writer tag. I haven’t done one in a LONG time (if my memory serves me correctly, I believe the last one was The Elysian Prophecy Book Tag by Vivien Reis back in February 2018.

This tag was created by Kim Chance, an amazing Authortuber and YA author — or rather originated since I’m not sure if these are her questions but it is the first place I got the idea for the tag and she did tag me (and everyone watching the video lolz) to do it, so here we go.

1. Lies. What is the biggest Fallacy you’re telling yourself with writing/being a writer?

I’m not good enough. Especially when I see how MANY aspiring writers and authors are out here in these streets. I’m a little wannabe from a twin-island dot in the Caribbean. Why would I make it over the gazillion other wannabe writers from all over the globe? Why would my story trump theirs? Imposter Syndrome runs deep…

2. Starting New. Does the first draft scare you or motivate you?

Definitely motivated. I get so excited to dive into a new project and write that first draft. You see, the first draft is basically a brainstorm dump. It’s where you’re telling yourself the story so you can get it out of your head space and onto the paper or computer screen. Honestly it’s the second draft that’s scary. It’s where you need to decipher all that word vomit you spewed — let’s face it — during NaNoWriMo.

3. Roadblock. What’s your number one obstacle stopping you from writing?

Right now, time. Between taking care of my 9 month-old nephew (extremely rewarding but time-consuming) and balancing a forty hour (actually, more like sixty hour) work week for my remote job, I barely have time to breathe let alone write.

4. Reflect. How can you overcome the obstacle?

By not complaining. Nephew won’t be a baby forever and my job offers flexi-time (once I make a full year) so incorporating writing sprints are definitely in my writing future.

5. Perfection. How can you challenge yourself to get passed the perfectionism-procrastination trap?

I’m a recovering perfectionist who is still learning that failure and mistakes are okay. Also, I don’t procrastinate as a general rule — blame my college days for that one — so my brain never pulls into procrastination station, more like distraction boulevard (I’m looking at you Pinterest and YouTube) but that’s another story. But first drafts are hard since it’s never perfect, the grammar and spelling are deplorable and, let’s be real, the story sucks. Therefore, first drafts are how I challenge my perfectionism. A good tip? Rewards are a great way to keep procrastination at bay — hey, that rhymes!

6. Failure sucks. How can you grow from a failure?

Can I be honest? Failure does suck! More than a Dyson on shag carpeting (sorry, I couldn’t resist). However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve cut myself some slack regarding the failures in my life — not just the writing-related ones. In order to grow I need to step away from the situation and analyse it as though I’m not the person involved. I also do the same thing with beta readers’ feedback. Weird, I know, but it works!

7. Rejection sucks too. How can you grow/learn from rejection?

Like failure, this is a bit of a sore point for me as well. I’m not even sure I’m qualified enough to answer this question without perjuring myself (uh, who’s been watching way too much Law & Order SVU this week?). But rejection — as I’ve often heard — is God’s protection. And while I can’t really co-sign on that, if you dig deep, it makes sense. Think back to any rejection you faced. If you got through with it, instead of being rejected, would you be happy? I can state emphatically, no. Every rejection has a lesson embedded in it. We just need to find it and not be offended by it. And the struggle continues.

8. Create Action. How do you keep moving towards your goals?

By doing a little bit everyday. I have 5 books (3 paperbacks and 2 eBooks) lined up for my TBR 2019 (To Be Read for the non-writerly Savi Crew members out there, I got you!). Remember, I’m supposed to read 10 for the year (and I don’t read at all). Before you chew me out, I’m trying to improve on that by making it one of my goals. Check out my excuse, as well as my other goals, here. But by having a TBR list I’m one step closer to achieving the goal. The joy of crossing out the novel title or highlighting to show completion far outweighs the pain of seeing an incomplete list in December 2019.

9. New Year, New Outlook. If Fear wasn’t holding you back… what would you be doing right now to further your writing dreams?

I’d be a creative authorpreneur. I would be a full-time, bestselling, multi-genre author who is jet-setting around the world doing book tours across America and writing seminars in Greece and Hawaii; converting my YA anime-inspired novel series to an actual anime series and graphic novels; reading my Middle Grade series in school libraries across the globe. Man, fear is such a fun-sucker!

10. Leap of Faith: What is one thing you plan to do this year even though it scares you?

Improve my writing by utilising both free and affordable tools. I’ve already signed up for a free webinar this weekend hosted by multiple best-seller and YouTube phenom, Kristen Martin. I also bought the licence for Scrivener (with my 50% discount code, thank you very much), the writing software that every Authortuber is talking about… and yes, it’s everything you thought it was and more! So quit using the free trial and buy the licence already. Plot is my weakest area (I’ve got characters and settings on lock!) so I definitely want to invest in some great writing books that deal with plot and its structure. Stay tuned.

Anyways, I’m rambling again which means it’s time to sign off… Toodles for now. And remember, no matter where you live, take a little time to enjoy the island life! Happy Writing!
