Persona 5 improving all social stats

The social element of the Persona series has always been a very important part of the formula, and Persona 5 is no different. When it comes time to form relationships with the other characters, you need to be sure that your character is leveled enough in certain categories in order to move the relationship further. This guide will show you how to do just that.

There are 5 social stats that you’ll gradually be improving throughout the game, and they are Charm, Kindness, Knowledge, Guts and Proficiency. Rather than these stats improving as your character levels up, they improve by doing things like working at a part-time job, going to the movies or reading books. Confidant events that you’ll take part in throughout the game will also improve these stats, so be sure to take part in them when you have the chance. The following is a breakdown of each of the 5 categories:

Charm: This stat involves being able to win people over, and is important for relationships. The level progression for the Charm category is Existent, Head-turning, Suave, Charismatic and Debonair. The following are activities that you can do to improve this stat:

  • Pay at the Diner in Shibuya
  • Watching Charm-improving movies at the movie theater
  • Reading Charm-improving books
  • Go to the Bathhouse
  • Play video games
  • Once at Charismatic rank, take on the Burger Challenge

Kindness: This stat is involves being able to talk to certain people, and also helps with landing certain jobs. The level progression for the Kindness category is Inoffensive, Considerate, Empathetic, Selfless and Angelic. The following are activities that you can do to improve this stat:

  • Pay at the Diner in Shibuya
  • Watch Kindness-improving movies at the movie theater
  • Reading Kindness-improving books
  • Watering the plant in your room
  • Play video games
  • Once at Selfless rank, take on the Burger Challenge

Knowledge: This stat involves being able to perform well on tests and being perceived well by others. The level progression for the Knowledge category is Oblivious, Learned, Scholarly, Encyclopedic and Erudite. The following are activities that you can do to improve this stat:

  • Read Knowledge-improving books
  • Play video games
  • Once at Encyclopedic rank, take on the Burger Challenge

Guts: This stat involves being able to select more brave dialogue options when dealing with certain characters, as well as being able to purchase better weapons from Untouchable. The level progression for the Guts category is Milquetoast, Bold, Staunch, Dauntless and Lionhearted. The following are activities that you can do to improve this stat:

  • Pay at the diner in Shibuya
  • Watch Guts-improving movies at the movie theater
  • Read Guts-improving books
  • Play video games
  • Once at Dauntless rank, take on the Burger Challenge

Proficiency: This stat involves being able to craft more efficiently. The level progression for the Guts category is Bumbling, Decent, Skilled, Masterful and Transcendent. The following are activities that you can do to improve this stat:

  • Watch Proficiency-improving movies at the movie theater
  • Read Proficieny-improving books
  • Play video games

When it comes to trying to max out each stat, you need to understand that it is a slow process. Don’t get discouraged if you’re doing the aforementioned activities and not seeing much progress, because that’s normal and it will likely take you most of the game to max out everything. Just keep doing the activities while progressing through the game and eventually you’ll be all maxed out.
