Hi all, Register to remove this ad I was wondering what your opinions are on this theory I heard. It basically states that for a character to be realistically complex they need to have contradictory traits. For example, one of my characters is an intelligence officer who switches back and forth from being kind and understanding to being a homicidal nutter. I feel like it's hard to find a balance between having the characters be too one-sided and being too contradictory. What are your thoughts?
