35 Weird Traits Your Characters May Have

What makes people weird is often what makes them interesting. I don’t know if you’ve seen a TV show called “My Strange Addiction” but there you will find a treasure trove of strange habits/addictions that people have. Everything from eating the foam from couch cushions to using bleach to consistently clean.
Thanks for sharing your list.


Read ‘weird’ as ‘unique’–the type of trait that grabs a readers’ attention. I’m

constantly looking for these so the characters in my novels are memorable, and the reader is excited to have them return to the plot line.

Everything on the list below I got from real people. You will be amazed!

  • eats M&Ms or Skittles by color
  • can’t use a pen without a top
  • can’t clean his/her house unless it’s dark out
