So, I have noticed something about my writing. I have only played calm quiet characters, and I seem unable to play that hyper active, outgoing character, or those quiet yet angry characters. I always find myself playing deep thinking, calm, collected yet not afraid to stand up and say something when they get stepped on (if I am using that term correctly), or they feel that they must speak/do something out of their character. I have really tried to play characters that weren't calm and collected, I've tried playing that hot headed person that can't seem to sit still. I got disinterested in that character really, really fast. And I don't exactly know why, but it seems that I can't keep that character going. But whenever I play a calm character, I nail it. Maybe it is because I myself and a rather calm person, and it is hard to rile me. But that to me is another problem; I cannot seem to pull some of my traits out of that character (thus why I'd never be a very good actor because I can never really differ from what my demeanor is, if someone asked me to play a hot tempered, loud/outspoken person, I'd fail miserably at it because that voice of reason (my reasoning) comes back to me and tells me to think over how to react without me even realizing it) and perhaps that is why I cannot play characters that differ so much from my personality. What about you?
