Thank you!
I’ve come up with some tips for designing interesting characters that I learned and some that I developed on my own:

If you want to develop characters based on different personality types, then you could choose lack of courage, lack of intellect, and lack of a heart like the three main characters in the Wizard of Oz. I read somewhere that this was what the writers did to develop the characters in the Hangover films.

In Star Trek, Kirk represented courage, Spock intellect, and Dr. McCoy represented heart. So in this example, three characters would respond to stimuli based on one of these three categories.

If you have multiple characters, you can use the seven deadly sins, so each character represents a different sin:

Gluttony
Greed
Wrath
Envy
Lust
Pride
Sloth


An interesting thing would be to have protagonists based on the seven deadly sins, and antagonists based on the virtues.

Virtues:

Prudence
Fortitude
Temperance
Justice


This goes against prevailing wisdom, but could lead to interesting results.​

Scott McCloud in his book Making Comics discussed basing the character in his Zot! Comic books on Jungian archetypes. This ensured that each character would respond to a given situation in a different way. McCloud suggested to his characters crashing the Oscars, and each of the four characters reacted in a different but predictable way, assuming you knew what Jungian archetype each character was based on.

***********

Here is a quote from that book:

That’s what I did in the early 80s when I partially modeled the four main characters for my first comic book series Zot! After Carl Jung’s four proposed types of human thought.

Zot: intuition

Jenny: Feeling

Peabody: intellect

Butch: sensation​

This is great! Helpful stuff - thanks for sharing!

Aside: I love that I can now look at Kirk, Spock, and McKoy and imagine in their place the Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Man. It's not exactly what you said, but it works! *Bigsmile*

I found this on Facebook:

How did “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” become the typical sentence that contains all 26 letters of the alphabet and not: ”Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow,” which is objectively a million times cooler!
