    ST: 4 - I don't work out at all. But I am a healthy young man, so I could probably break a door down if I had to.
    PE: 5 - 20/20 eyesight. I pay attention when I need to, but when I am heavily involved in something I tune everything else out.
    EN:6 - I can't run for shit but I have a high pain tolerance from constantly wrestling with my friends, and I don't remember the last time I was sick. I am also immune to radiation.
    CH:8 - Even though some people think I am sometimes too blunt and honest, I think I am very tactful. I make friends easily, and I can always offer good advice. I am no super model, but I look alright. My charismatic strength is in my personality.
    IN:7 - Hard to say if this is book smarts or street smarts, or a mix of both. I couldn't handle a complicated statistics math problem or tell you the half life of a atom of oxygen but I could sure as hell tell you where to get the answer. I have rarely been stumped by a mental obstacle if I had ample time to deal with it.
    Luck:10 - When I was a fetus my mother's womb broke and the water leaked out slowly over time, rather than breaking all at once. Nobody knew, and if my mom didn't go to the hospital for a totally unrelated reason I would have died in the womb. I was born premature. When I was a baby I caught chicken pox or measles or something like that at a terribly early age and spend three weeks in the hospital near death, but didn't die. I am an only child in a rich loving family. My parents bought me a car, a computer, paid for my education, pay for my rent, my cellphone and still surprise me with new clothes and gadgets. I have never broken a bone, never gotten in trouble with the law, never had a loved one die. I think thats a pretty good track record of good luck. Oh, I also did pretty well at online poker.

    If "Silver Spoon" was a trait, I would have that.

    Silver Spoon: You where born into money, and you always have someone to call to bail you out of any situation. This trait starts you off with 500 extra caps and gives a random chance of receiving items as gifts from friends and family. However merchants can smell your money and charge you higher prices. Also some people might get bitter at your good fortune and have a negative reaction to you.

    So my traits are: silver spoon and good natured.

    S - 5
    I work out 4-5 days a week, but high metabolism and leaner body frame means I don't pack on the muscle, I'm 6'2 and only weigh 142 lbs.

    P - 10
    I notice small things, I'm always aware of the people and objects around me. I have excellent vision, hearing and sense of smell.
    My training with the RMA has enabled me to catch knives, and fight multiple opponents in low/no light conditions, aswell as blinded (forced to fight facing extremely bright lights)

    E - 6
    I do long distance running for 7/12 months of the year, aswell as the physical conditioning in RMA.

    C - 3
    In person, I don't talk much and generally ignore other people around me. I'm not a "people" person at all.

    I - 6
    I have pretty good logic, spacial and problem solving skills, and a fairly decent memory, but seriously lack in other areas like science and math, except for geometry and trig, which for some reason I have some kind of innate adeptness to. I'd tie my perception into intelligence, such as noticing strange behaviour from some one and adjusting the way you speak/interact with them accordingly.

    Sort of "street smarts", but most "street smarts" tie into perception, being on your toes, and being well-prepared.

    A - 9 (+1)
    I've always been really agile, my smaller frame means I can run fast, for a long time, fit into tight spaces and climb just about any thing I can grab with my hands and stick a toe into. Again, the RMA training comes into play with understanding body mechanics, proper fluent movement and economy of motion for maximum potential with minimal effort. I just know how and when to move the "correct" way. Saved my ass more than once.

    L - 1
    My life outside of RMA training sucks balls. Parents divorced when I was 1, grew up in poverty, alot of injuries and burns, lots of loved ones dying.
    I had alot of problems in school, mainly with the "administration" and plenty of run-ins with the law and authority figures.
    Watching friends turn into addicts. Becomming an addict, and breaking the addiction.

    Good times.

    Intelligence of 9 is correct; intelligence quotient is in the (high)150 region, although as with many others, I consider IQ to be a rather arbitary construct, unable to determine all aspects of intelligence. And hey, in any case, it's balanced out by the CH 3.

    AG is less flexibility as it is raw speed - can do very quick movements and am a very good sprint runner.

    ST: 2 [I'm practically dead after 5 press-ups]
    PE: 5/-3 [with/without my glasses]
    EN: 2 [Running for 10 Minutes makes my heart beat like hell. And my feat will hurt for at least a week]

    LK: 10 [Theoretically, I would never be able to live. I have the extraordinary luck to having been born into a society where even the weakest survive.]

    I'm suffering from a general 10-Points-penalty for having social phobia and being a weakling.

    - strength: 3

    Never been a physically strong person. I can deal with things, but I'd still say I'm below average when it comes to physical strength.

    - perception: 9

    As a young kid I was shooting top scores in shooting contests even that back then I used eyeglasses. Back in army then (13 years ago or something) I still had the glasses, but I was shooting like a pro right from the start, and got the best possible score from the so-called "shooter's exam" (or something) from the first try. Fixed my eyesight some 4-5 years ago with laser operation and haven't had glasses since that.

    - endurance: 4

    In my case goes almost hand by hand with strength; below average. Can deal with things but certainly not forever! Haha.

    - charisma: 5

    Quite average I think, neutral.

    - intelligence: 8

    Always done good in the schools / education, no matter what school it was, and without exactly concentrating into the studies (more like "just being there" and getting at least above average grades, current university studies going really good too). Creative with music (especially), and graphics (photography, drawing, painting), etc, which I myself would count into this section too.

    - agility: 5

    Pretty average, I'd say.

    - luck: 6

    As a kid was often said to have good luck (winning competitions and crap). Definitely better luck than the opposite, as adult, too ... heh.

    ST: 4 I'm not too strong, just a tad below average

    P: 6 I have a knack for details, though my ADD sometimes interferes with my ability to find things.

    E: 5 I'm about average in terms of endurance. I can run a few miles (albeit slowly).

    Ch: 6 I'm a sociable guy around the right kind of people and I can easily make friends if another is interested in my personality.

    IN: 7 (?) Appearantly, I have an IQ of around 125 and that is really smart. I dunno if that's around 7 on the fallout scale, but it seems so. My mind loves letters and I might go so far as to say I'm an 8 in terms of the English language (I was surprised to find out that I'm in the 99th percentile for vocabulary).

    Agility: 6 or 7 I'm flexible (I can do the splits!) and have good reflexes.

    Luck: 5 I'm not a hugely lucky, but neither am I very unlucky.

    Strength: 4 [I can't carry anymore]
    Perception: 7 [Hey, what was that?]
    Endurance: 6 [Let's run a bit, hey hey, not 'that' far]
    Charisma: 5 [Too much ignorance for more]
    Intelligence: 5 [Maybe 7, but -2 because of laziness]
    Agility: 4 [No fast moves before the engines are really running]
    Luck: 7 [Wuh, that was close, how the hell did it just miss me...]

    -Luck: 6

    with glasses/contacts my perception would go up to an 8.

    so far in my life i've been pretty lucky

    i didn't use 40 points, i just put them at what I think my real stats would be.

    I've got a high IQ, perform very well in school, with good memory, and I also tend to interact well with people, making very very few enemies.

    But I'm weak, and I'm frail.

    Or at least perceive themselves as more intelligent.

    I like how almost everybody details 'I suck at this' as a 4 or a 5, while they also detail a 'this is what I'm good at' with a 7 or 8.
