DIRECT and INDIRECT Characterization are defined under CHARACTERIZATION.
Direct Characterization: The author directly states the character's traits or characteristics.
Indirect Characterization: The author indirectly depends on the reader to draw conclusions about the character's traits. The author can achieve this by telling what other characters in the story say and think about another character.
Character Traits are WORDS (usually adjectives) used to describe how a character acts during the story or work of literature. Think Personality traits...these traits are often viewed as GOOD OR BAD TRAITS.
