HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
Being meticulously observant and careful with follow-through

DESCRIPTION:
People who are detail-oriented notice the little things—about people, places, ideas, and projects. When others tune out because something is “good enough,” a detail-oriented person will strive to get things exactly right. Often being so focused on the details is what causes a person to go from good to great. It also shows their work ethic because they refuse to cut corners.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
Noticing imperfections, flaws, or disruptions in patterns
Being good at making comparisons and spotting what sets two similar things apart
Being able to pick up on nuanced shifts in behavior, tone, etc. so one is able to nurture relationships well
Handing in high-quality work every time
Picking up on hints better than most
Being  prepared and therefore never caught off guard or surprised
Being able to go the extra mile means the right people will be impressed
