How to Build Characters?

Lately, I've been pondering (yes, I ponder a lot!) how to build characters.

Some say you should Build Characters Through Adversity.

Some say We care about characters when they have problems and drives.

Some say characters must have consistency, complexity, and individuality.

Some say characters need to be believable and interesting.

Some say characters should be admirable but pleasantly flawed, in adversity but not whiney and should be incredibly real.

A lot to think about! What do you think?

I think it depends on your style and the story you are telling. Also, all of the above.
