Hey, Something I've forgotten to get around to asking about for a few years(?) now.

I've heard here and there that it was important to understand that the descriptors for the attributes (Stamina, Lore, Willpower etc) are not something that the players make themselves. I've later heard people say things like, "I finally came to the realization that you're not supposed to make up your own descriptors, but rather choose one from the list".

Why? What's the Importance?
