Traits in Divinity Original Sin 2 are the measure of the personality of a character to determine certain statistical bonuses that are given to you. They are displayed in pairs of 2, and a sliding meter shows towards which side is your character is progressing. The bonuses are applied when one side of the trait has higher points than the other. 

NOTE: The values & information below is based on Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition. These values are subject to change until the final version of D:OS2. They will be updated as more info becomes available. 

Divinity Original Sin 2 Traits

You can view your traits from the character sheet, by hitting the heart icon tab. For example, "Pragmatic" increases your Reason score by 1 point, whereas "Romantic" (on the opposite side of that scale) increases your Luck score by 1 point. You can never receive a bonus from Pragmatic and Romantic at the same time. If you (for example) make a dozen Pragmatic choices and never choose a Romantic choice, you will only have a +1 in Reason gained from being Pragmatic a dozen times (and not +12 as you might expect). In order to ever be considered Romantic (and earn a +1 in Luck), you'd have to make 13 Romantic choices (and no further Pragmatic choices).
