Thanks for the review. ^^
I have to state, it actually got marginally higher than I expected. Although I find the comment about situational questioning a little... I dunno. A fair handful have been situational, but situational stuff I always see to be probably the best stuff for personality, unless you just plain resort to basics like; 'What do you like?', 'What do you hate?' etc. etc.
The way you react to circumstances and your reasoning are, at least in my mind, one of the biggest ways to show personality - it's all about actions and reactions, what your prioritise, the way you think, how you solve the problems, what would motivate you. I feel they give a lot more to think on and say than asking basic personality questions - although on that note, one point I'm surprised you didn't make was about people only answering questions they already knew the answers to, and ignoring the ones they didn't, as that felt like a large point against the character development side of the comic.
Oh well, fair is fair, and as I say, still amazed by the score we got, thanks for the review.

Shoot, I knew there was something I missed...
Oh well.
And yes, while that is a more appealing way to do it, A few of the "What do you hate..." etc wuestions thrown in, or hell, I'd love to see the character give a backstory to their character. As is, it's stuff about their future, not their past. And most Character developement starts with a character's past.

True, but most characters have a past already. Backstory is the one thing most of the characters already have, as such, it felt pointless to ask. Also, it's a really odd question to ask for some of the more slice-of-life-esque characters we've got... a normal person doesn't usually have an 'origin story' tacked on. XP
And though I don't do it much, I have used some of those basic questions, like 'what do you fear' etc., it's just, they don't really have much in the way of thinking about your character... I'm trying to look at the character under the surface of likes and dislikes and basic personality traits, as everyone has plenty of those... things like the hypotheticals of 'what you'd do if you were God' can show a more complex understanding of the characters motivations, drives and desires. It's the key reason why I keep stressing to my authors the fact questions have a 'why' clause to them.
