Hello everybody and welcome to my price list! I'm always happy to talk so if you have any questions or just want to chat, by all means Note me.

So, what do I do? I make character reference sheets with a difference. You've seen visual sheets that show how a character looks; I make sheets that describe your character's mental and emotional workings. Almost all of my sheets include a piece of art you already have of your own character.

I am a student of Transactional Analysis en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transact… (link goes to Wikipedia) and use the models of understanding in TA to make psychological reference sheets. I make basic, mid-range and detailed versions of each model, and the models I use are described below.

General

A general sheet will give you a written overview of what a character is like. This will be based on their Surviving and Performing personalities. A Surviving personality is the way we adapted to our environment so as to keep ourselves safe when we didn't feel anyone else could. Our Performing personality is how we go about the task of living up to other peoples' expectations of us.

Personality Adaptations originally developed by Paul Ware and Taibi Kahler, with contributions by Vann Joines.

6 Psychological Hungers

Originally developed by Eric Berne.

We need more than food in order to thrive and remain mentally healthy, and some of those needs are psychological. We need:

Stimulus
(anything that stimulates our five senses)
Recognition
(for others to acknowledge that we exist)
Time-Structuring
(to fill up our days and keep us busy)

Those are the main three. The other three are less vital and/or are satisfied by the above three, but are still worth a mention:

Contact
(Touching and being touched by others)
Sex/Passion
(Becoming immersed in an activity that interests us and reaching a peak. Broadly speaking, means hobbies as well as sex)
Incident
(Not necessarily a hunger in its own right. Our preferred level of Incident is how often we want the extreme/unusual/noteworthy to happen. An Incident will occur under one or more of the other hungers)

We each have our own preferences for how we want each hunger fulfilled, both in degree and in nature. For example you may love bright colours while I find them too garish. The written versions of this type of sheet will give individualised information about this.

8 Psychosocial Stages

Developed by Erik Erikson.

As we grow from birth to old age we go through a series of developmental stages. We need different things from our parents/caregivers during these times and if we don't get what we need then we can find subsequent life stages more difficult. However, with awareness of the stages, we can resolve earlier conflicts at a later time.

These stages can also be seen as 'crisis points' in our lives where we must learn certain life lessons. The stages are:

Trust vs. Mistrust (Birth - 12 months) Where we must learn to hope
Autonomy vs. Shame (2 - 3 years) Where we must develop a strong will
Initiative vs. Guilt (3 - 5 years) Where we must develop a sense of purpose
Industry vs. Inferiority (6 - 12 years) Where we must learn to be competent

Identity vs. Role Confusion (13 - 18 years) Where we must learn how to be faithful, both sexually and professionally
Intimacy vs. Isolation (18 - 40 years) Where we must learn how to love
Generativity vs. Stagnation (40 - 65 years) Where we must learn to be caring for the next generation
Ego Integrity vs. Despair (65 years and over) Where we must learn wisdom.

Egogram

According to TA principles a person's ego can be broken down into three, five or nine 'ego states'. This type of sheet will use the five state model.

The five states are: Nurturing Parent, Critical Parent (both are 'ruling others' type states), Adult (a rational position focussing on the here and now), Adapted Child and Free Child (both are the responses to others we made as children and which we continue to enact).

Optional Extra: If you like your complex information even more convoluted ask for the nine state model, which includes Positive and Negative versions of Critical and Nurturing Parent, Adapted Child and Free Child. 'Positive' in this context means useful here and now, negative means detrimental in the here and now.

Cycle of Development

Developed by Pam Levin.

This is an alternative to the 8 Psychosocial Stages, with a few similarities, and useful in different contexts. This model runs from birth to age 16 years. The stages are:

Being (Birth - 6 months)
Doing (6 - 18 months)
Thinking (18 months - 3 years)
Identity (3 - 6 years)
Skill (6 - 12 years)
Regeneration (12 - 16 years)

Once we have been through this first 16-year cycle we tend to follow the same pattern and repeat/reinforce our early-life experiences every time we meet new people, have a new experience like starting a job, you name it. In other words, if you learned it was better not to try Doing anything when you were 6-18 months old, you are less likely to be proactive in later life.

The good news is that the last of these stages is Regeneration, in which we reflect on the experiences of the previous stages and test them out again, and if we find the second time around that our first impressions were untrue we will discard the old belief. And with awareness, we can make a point of having better experiences in all of the stages.

OK Corral

During our first 6 months of life we make some important decisions about ourselves and others. One of those decisions is to decide whether or not we are 'OK' - that is to say, are we fundamentally valuable, loveable and capable? We make the same decision about the other person. Our first Other is our mother/primary caregiver, but we later apply the rule we made of OK/not OKness to other people with whom we come into contact.

An OK Corral will comment on the four possible combinations of these existential positions:

I'm OK You're OK ("I get on well with you")
I'm OK You're Not OK ("I want to get rid of you")
I'm Not OK You're OK ("I want to get away from you")
I'm Not OK You're Not OK ("I get nowhere with you")

Each of these has their own implications, and we tend to visit most or all of these positions at various times. But we all have our own profiles of which positions we visit more often and what they mean to us. Your OK Corrall sheet will give information about your character's relationship with these positions.

Optional Extra: There is such a thing as a three-handed OK Corral: I'm, You're and They're. If you want this, please say so. Otherwise you'll get the two-handed version described above.

Concept of 'OK-ness' developed by Eric Berne.

Cold/Plastic/Warm

We have a variety of different ways of interacting with others. One of the basic ways that underpins all of our relationships are whether we are warm and friendly, fake-friendly or openly unfriendly. These three modes of contact were suggested by Claude Steiner and he called them:

Warm Fuzzies (shows of genuine warmth and friendliness).
Plastic Fuzzies (like warm fuzzies but don't feel like them. E.g., "That's a lovely tshirt. Did you get it from a second-hand store?" or "I bet you used to look gorgeous when you were young.").
Cold Pricklies (shows of unambiguous unkindness).

Basic

Contact Sequence

We all have different preferences for how to meet others, and how to be met, based on our personalities. We have a mode we use when we first meet an Other, one we only use once we feel in rapport with the Other, and one we tend to feel is a 'trap door' that we get stuck in and therefore try to avoid. These three modes are Behaviour, Feeling and Thinking.

If a person whose first-contact mode is Feeling meets another person, their instinct is to ask how the other feels or to moan about the weather or some other emotive greeting. But if the person they meet has Behaviour as their first-contact mode then they will wonder why the Feelings person is talking to them so much and just want to get on with some task or other - study, a project, or whatever their choice of activity is.

Developed by Paul Ware.

Extra-Introversion

This is not a TA model, but is a useful way of understanding how a person/character/fursona works. Why not give one a try?

Your character's level of extraversion and introversion are based on several criteria. Shyness is not a critera for extraversion or introversion - it is absolutely possible for an extravert to be shy and an introvert to be confident - but I mention the character's shyness level because so many people relate shyness to this scale.

Kinsey Scale

The Kinsey Scale isn't TA but I thought I'd include it anyway. A straight-gay scale.

The only sheet option for this item is a slider scale because as far as I know there isn't much one can say about a person being gay, straight or asexual other than 'this is what they are'. Sorry, but I do not include information on fetishes.

How to Order

If you would like a sheet, please Note me and tell me:

- which sheet you would like, including whether it is the basic, mid-range or detailed version (or tell me if you're not sure and we can talk about it).
- the name of the character/fursona you would like to have on your sheet.
- a link to art of your character and to the person who made the art for you. I will ask them for permission to use the art. Art is optional: you don't have to have any on your sheet.

I will send you a questionnaire for you to complete. Remember to please give answers the character themselves would have given! Then send your answers back to me and I will write your sheet.

I accept payment by Paypal before the sheet is made.

I'll send you your sheet within 7 days of you sending me your questionnaire answers.
