Story Point: Mental Sex

Every Main Character should have a Mental Sex. Whether your Main Character is a horse, a house, a person, or an alien, the audience will not be able to empathize with it unless that character possesses a Male or Female mind. If you want your Main Character to tend to look for linear solutions to its problems, choose Male Mental Sex. If you want your Main Character to tend to look for holistic solutions to its problems, choose female mental sex.

NOTE: A character’s Mental Sex need not match its Gender.
