*facepalms* Oh, I get it! The reason for the trait pairings were complementary colors! And that's why the Determination and Patience pair didn't work out as planned - the others were paired with their complementary color of PIGMENT(red, yellow, blue), but red and cyan are complementary colors of LIGHT(red, green, blue)! That's why Determination also went okay with Kindness, the green trait! Oh my god... you're a genius!
This is also important for a future thing that explains something you all have seen a lot actually.
P.s. I’m still out ofthe country so I can’t respond to a ton of things. I’ll be back Friday
