Here are the rules:

1) There are four attributes, Body, Mind, Creativity, Charisma. Each attribute is scored on a 1-10 scale.
2) You have 20 total points to allocate.
3) "Build" yourself as you are in real life (not as you wish to be), and give us some insight as to why you built yourself as you did.
4) Note: EVERYONE must use all 20 points, no more and no less.

Attributes Described
Body: Fitness, general health, looks,
Mind: Analysis, reasoning, puzzles, IQ
Creativity: Creating art, music, stories, building and designing things
Charisma: People skills, Persuasion, Leadership, "game" with potential romantic partners


Nick Miller Build:

Body: 3 - need to lose some weight, starting to have health issues
Mind: 6 - reasonably intelligent but not the best at advanced math or logic games
Creativity: 7 -probably my strongest trait; I love writing/telling stories and I possess some decent art skills
Charisma: 4 - I am getting to be more of an extrovert in my older age, but I don't claim to be an "alpha" type who commands a room

Anyone else up for it?

Fun topic

Body 4
Mind 6
Creativity 6
Charisma 5

Although my body isn't terrible, I've been putting on the pounds and jeans fitting a bit snug lately. I'm tall and weight is spread out though. Need to avoid eating crap when I have good food at my reach.

Mind-I'm reasonably intelligent, however time and motivation are in short supply. Learning now is harder than as a kid when I'd read through class and still ace a test heh. It's a struggle.

Creativity-I consider this my best attribute, if I had an extra point it'd have landed here. I find solutions to problems and am willing to keep trying something new.

Charisma- I'm agreeable and trustworthy and play background  roles in most cases. I don't have "game," and am occasionally the butt of jokes, however I believe in honesty and am earnest and straightforward in my daily life. This has given me the benefit of the doubt in situations and opportunities in others. Think maybe Hank Hill in a less hokey way.

Hmm, why not.

Body: 6 - Pudgy 'round the middle, but reasonably strong, healthy biomarkers, etc.
Mind: 7 - I pride myself on my ability to understand evidence and reason, but the mind must be continuously trained, and I've been neglecting my training
Creativity: 2 - Garbage at creative writing, open-world building games, etc.
Charisma: 5 - Has improved since college, but still needs work; able to hold a conversation with most people

Charisma: 3

I'm a problem solver that relies on logical thinking and a little bit of creativity.  I couldn't persuade anyone if my life depended on it, but my charisma is still a little better than my physical/motor skills.  I don't think I could survive in a pre-Internet world.

Body: 7 - I'm 48 and fit.  Not what I'd consider a great looker (I mean, I've got gray hair, wrinkles, pimples, cellulite, and I've given birth).  But this is as good as it gets for me.  I spent the year running half marathons.  I lift.  I eat healthfully.  I swim.  I walk. I'm happy.
Mind: 7 - I'm an engineer.  Good at math.  I like analyzing things.  I love reading all sorts of things.
Creativity: 3 - I actually love to make things. I like to cook, quilt, crochet, sew.  I just think that there are people who are naturally better at it than I am.  I still love doing it.
Charisma: 3 - I'm decent with people too - or maybe I am just comparing myself with the male PhD engineers I am surrounded by.  I've moved into management.  I'm pretty good at dealing with people as long as I don't have PMS.
