The highest word count thread I have ever participated in was about this topic. Opinions varied from "any social or personality is inherently worse than free form" to "if it is significant it should have mechanical weight". Going into that much detail would of course derail this thread.

Anyways still enjoying the look into this glorious heap of mechanics ideas that shouldn't go together.
