Player Personality

Every player has a personality which can be broken down into four subsections. For the purpose of this page, we will refer to these four subsections as leadership, agreeability, honesty and aggressiveness.

Leadership and Agreeability

These two attributes are linked, and play a role in team spirit and determining who the team leader is at a given club. Leadership is given a rating of either disastrous, wretched, poor, weak, inadequate, passable or solid. When used in conjunction with the agreeability of a player, and examined across the whole of a team squad, it is possible to determine which player is the team leader.

Always a matter for debate on the conferences, it is considered that a player who is the team leader and has high leadership can affect team spirit.

Agreeability is also measured on a scale, and the categories are:

  • popular
  • sympathetic
  • pleasant
  • controversial
  • nasty

It is generally accepted that popular players will affect team spirit in a positive way (by slowing the fall of team spirit to the default level), whilst nasty players will affect team spirit in a negative way (by increasing the speed of fall of team spirit to the default level).

There is also one other category of agreeability, and exists only in one player - Bob Sunesson. This player is described as a beloved team member, and is considered to be above popular in stature.

Honesty

This attribute of a players personality determines the chances of a player getting booked for diving in order to gain a freekick or penalty for his team. The more honest a player is, the less likely he is to get booked.

Honesty can be measured on a scale, and the categories are:

  • Infamous
  • Dishonest
  • Honest
  • Upright
  • Righteous

Research has gone into this aspect of players personalities - unfortunately I cannot remember which conference or user this originated from in hattrick. (Please someone edit this article in order to give the credit for this research!).

Infamous 3.5% 10%
Dishonest 24.5% 6%

Upright 24.5% 1.5%
Righteous 3.5% 0.3%

Aggressiveness

This attribute of a players personality determines the chances of a player getting booked for fouling an opposition player. The more aggressive a player is, the more likely he is to get booked.

Aggressiveness can be measured on a scale, and the categories are:

  • Tranquil
  • Calm
  • Balanced
  • Temperamental
  • Nasty
