Ok, so I recently started attempting to build my own Tulpa (Started two days ago) and I've been working on personality first, I find myself when describing the traits I'm trying to put in in comes out a lot like "You will do X" or "You will feel X when X happens" when I try to create the traits.

My main concern is as the thread says, am I doing it right? Is simply thinking about what sort of personality my Tulpa will have and listing off things that are to do with this personality enough to bring her into existence? I'm worried that listing X reaction to X happening "When you see people being lazy you will be frustrated" or "When you see people pushing there willpower you will be happy" lead to parroting? I don't want to screw my Tulpa(Doesn't have a name yet) up. I would appreciate it if you guys could give me your 2 cents on this.

I'm actually doing something similar to what you're doing, and I'll probably post a 'guide' in the forums today with exactly what I'm doing.

I'm certainly not an authority on this -- I won't try to be -- but I don't think you're parroting but rather defining the personality.

I would check out FAQ's Personality Template if you haven't yet, that covers a good amount of things to deal with on a per-trait basis.

Thanks, I'll have at look.
I'd still like to see what other people have to think on this though.

The thing about personality is you want to stay away from outward reactions as much as possible and stay in the realm of mental reactions. So if someone pisses your tulpa off, the reaction should be "A feeling of rage and an inability to think straight" as opposed to "Your face gets red".

Seems like you have that down, and what your doing looks like there's no issue to it. As long as you're covering as much as you can for each trait it shouldn't really be a problem. There isn't much of a "right" or "wrong" when it comes to personality unless you're spending a lack of time on it, or doing something that is widely thought of as detrimental (parroting, whatever).

When I was working on personality, I kept in mind one principle. To use as less words as possible, to describe Her reactions, and in opposite to them, I used many feelings.

Thanks guys, I've read through FAQ's trait template and that helped me a lot with what I was worried about, since I found myself just repeating the same five lines over again since I couldn't really put into words what it meant to be that certain trait and I'm kinda -bad- at emotions as an all over.
