    Has anyone got a list of the most attractive (to the AI) Personality Traits that you can acquire?

    I've played quite a lot of Apollo and it seems very hit and miss in regards to what the AI will try to get from you. Certainly the ones that reduce leaf science cost seem to be popular, but even if they ask for an agreement only a couple of turns later (it feels like) they cancel the agreement.

    So what I'm looking for here is Personality Traits that are so attractive to the AI they just cannot refuse them. I'm not actually concerned about whether the primary ability actually helps me or not, I'm just looking for ways to maximize generation of diplomacy credits.

    They always grab the free workers, I know that. I refuse them if they are already in an expansion cycle and working on a victory.

    Generally they like the cheap ones right in the beggining. You'll get less diplo capital, but it will be easier to sell them early

    The reason the AI constantly drops agreements is because it cannot afford them. When I am on Chungsu they take that 15 per turn agreement all the time and drop it regularly because they run out of capital. A good trick to ensure you can maximize that capital is to buy an agreement from then in return. I typically wait for Poly to buy my big agreement then go pick up theirs in return and they don't drop mine.

    The agreement from the %production trait for faster road movement is popular with the AI. Its also unlikely to end up getting dropped because it is cheap. Good trait for me and a reliably sold agreement that doesn't really grant a huge advantage, I consider that trait a very good investment.

    The "specialists require no food" benefit is usually very popular with the AIs in my games, at least

    Its popular with me as well. If you want to grow a big city it turns Mass Digesters into a giant pile of free food.

    I played as the Kavithan Protectorate in a game and the AI grabbed both policies regularly. Especially liked the +4 health in Capital. Was rolling in the diplomatic capital...

    One of the things with Hutama is the AI ignore both his agreements. :lol:

    Black Markets is very popular in my games. I'm currently Polystralia and picked all three traits that benefits trade routes (Profiteering, Cooperative and Enterprisal) and Black Markets is the only one the AI care for. Not even my unique agreements.

    I'm not sure there is intelligence involved in the picks.

    Try starting as ARC and everyone grab your spy improvement stuff, when no one has any spies.

    I think they pick based on relationship, they don't seem to have any knowledge of value of each agreement.

    Confirmed. I'm playing as Kozlov and the other players are requesting me agreements to improve their satellites... that no one could have this early (well, except for solar collectors found on resource pods).
