    Juxtaposing traits?

    When I was looking into advice on how to write fictional characters, I remember coming across the advice of giving your character two opposing traits that seem contradictory when viewed from a distance, but when given full context the two actually make sense together.

    Agreeableness and autism

    My Life Oblivious of Autism intro

    I am biologically a female, but I identify as gender neutral. Because of that, it took a little longer to figure myself out, and was always missed.
