When a character is tempted to do a FaceHeelTurn or a HeelFaceTurn, it is often the result of much CharacterDevelopment in their lives, forcing them to weigh their nature, goals, loves, and even ''hates'' in balance. It is by no means a simple or trivial matter, so we here at TVTropes have decided to make discovering the likelihood of such an event for a character simpler. But since we already have a TVTropesWikiDrinkingGame, we decided to make it a [[SortingAlgorithmOfTropes sorting algorithm]] instead!

To use the Algorithm, take each column's "Score", divide it by the number of applicable rows in the column, repeat for every column, and add the results together. Post your results in [[WMG/SortingAlgorithmOfFaceHeelTurning the WMG page for this article]], where these tables have been copied for your convenience.
