The Thinking Writer had a good link today on delving into the personalities of characters by finding their "personality type." He suggests Keirsey Temperament WebsiteThe best  personality typing system for me is The Enneagram. It's a little more writer friendly and less academic than Keirsey. 

And it's particularly fun when you go against type, imagining your action hero as a "Peacemaker" or your femme fatal as an "Individualist. Fun Joel's Screenwriting Blog has a series of five posts on the subject, which you can read here.

Just my tip for the day.

Good stuff! I liked How NOT to Pitch a Studio as well.

I wrote a series of posts a few years back about using the Enneagram as a tool for developing character, etc. I'll email you links and you can feel free to post, if you like!
