Traits are aspects of the presidente's history, abilities, and life. All traits give advantages, though some of them come with downsides as well.

In Tropico 3, each presidente gets two traits and two flaws.

In Tropico 4, each presidente gets three traits and flaws are removed from the game. All traits start out with 1 star each. When a game is won using a presidente with a particular trait, that trait will gain 1 to 3 stars depending on how well the game went, to a maximum of 5 stars. Each star improves the benefits a trait gives.
