This article is about the current version of DF.

Dwarven personalities are determined by beliefs, goals, and facets. These are distinct from attributes. In general, personality traits do not have as important a gameplay effect as attributes, though many of the gameplay effects of personality traits are yet unknown.

Personality traits are shown in a dwarf's thoughts and preferences description page, which can be accessed by viewing that dwarf then p, z, Enter, or from the unit menu with view, Enter.

[edit] Beliefs

Each belief has a range from −50 to 50. The value triggers a report in "thoughts and preferences" depending on where it falls in these seven levels:

Value Range Values in Range Probability Effect
+41 to +50 10 0.4% Highest
+26 to +40 15 2% Very High
+11 to +25 15 8.5% High
−10 to +10 21 78% Neutral
−25 to −11 15 8.5% Low
−40 to −26 15 2% Very Low
−50 to −41 10 0.4% Lowest

Beliefs are also influenced by cultural values via the use of the VALUE entity token. For example, dwarven civilizations hold craftsdwarfship in the highest regard, whereas goblins hold the ideas of fairness and sacrifice in utter disdain. If an individual dwarf's belief differs significantly from the civilization's beliefs, then that belief gets highlighted in cyan in the thought and personality screen.

Certain beliefs can conflict with personality facets — see below.

[edit] Goals

Some creatures dream of accomplishing certain goals in their life, and these goals can presumably affect their behavior. Dwarves will receive a happy thought upon completion of goals and receive the moniker of "and this goal was realized" in the personality description following their original goal. It is not certain yet whether goals are limited to one per entity.

If a creature has such dreams, they will be listed in the Thoughts and Preferences page.

Token Description Gameplay effects
STAY_ALIVE
MAINTAIN_ENTITY_STATUS
START_A_FAMILY dreams of raising a family Goal completed upon giving birth/fathering an infant.
RULE_THE_WORLD dreams of ruling the world
CREATE_A_GREAT_WORK_OF_ART dreams of creating a great work of art Goal completed upon creation of Artifact or Masterpiece
CRAFT_A_MASTERWORK dreams of crafting a masterwork someday Goal completed upon creation of Artifact or Masterpiece
BRING_PEACE_TO_THE_WORLD dreams of bringing lasting peace to the world
BECOME_A_LEGENDARY_WARRIOR dreams of becoming a legendary warrior
MASTER_A_SKILL dreams of mastering a skill Goal completed upon reaching Legendary skill status.
FALL_IN_LOVE dreams of falling in love
SEE_THE_GREAT_NATURAL_SITES dreams of seeing the great natural places of the world
IMMORTALITY Leads to necromancy

If said goal has actually been fulfilled, the description will include "and this dream was realized".

[edit] Facets

Each personality facet has a value from 0 to 100. The value triggers a report in "thoughts and preferences" depending on where it falls in these seven levels:

Value Range Values in Range Probability Effect
91-100 10 0.4% Highest
76-90 15 2% Very High
61-75 15 8.5% High
40-60 21 78% Neutral
25-39 15 8.5% Low
10-24 15 2% Very Low
0-9 10 0.4% Lowest

The 40−60 range does not cause a report.

Facets are also influenced by species via the use of the PERSONALITY creature token. For example, dwarves are slightly more greedy than average with a median of 55 in that trait, whereas goblins aren't likely to help others out — their altruism median is a mere 25, and is capped at 50.

Facets also have an effect on which social skills are learned in social interaction, and determine whether certain actions may give a good or bad thought. Facets may have other, more subtle effects on creature behavior, which are currently not entirely understood.

Certain facets are capable of conflicting with the dwarf's beliefs. The effect of this is not yet known.
