Someone once gave me a character types book as s gift, but I never really looked into it much. I think the understanding of archetypes like this is very useful. Great foundations or skeletons. It's the tweaks you do that make them people.

Thanks, Robert. I intend to make good use of this soon.

9. The Diplomat

Diplomats avoid conflict. They can see the world from another personís point of view. This bridges interpersonal differences, and improves communication and understanding. But in mirroring someone else, Diplomats may lose themselves. In the most extreme cases, they can become multiple personalities.

Hell, there's an entire novel right there!

I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.
