Being called on to answer a question in class can be stressful. The teachers in Persona 4 Golden make an annoying habit of calling on players, but answering these general knowledge questions correctly can increase some important stats.

    Increasing Stats in Persona 4 Golden

    The protagonist in Persona 4 Golden increasing his Knowledge stat.

    In Persona 4 Golden, players will divide their time between traveling into the Shadow World to kick some monster butt and living a normal life as a high school student. While you may be tempted to neglect your grades in lieu of leveling up in the traditional RPG sense, there’s a reason why you should aim to be the top student in your class.

    The protagonist in Persona 4 Golden has five important stats that can be boosted throughout the course of the game. These are Knowledge, Diligence, Courage, Understanding, and Expression.

    Consistently leveling up in these stats can lead to bonus items and easier progression with social links. Certain part-time jobs will require that specific stats be at a specific level and some relationships will require a certain stat level to progress.

    These personal stats aren’t increased by engaging in battle, but rather by reading books, studying, answering questions correctly in class, working part-time jobs, attending school clubs, playing sports, volunteering, and more.

    Answering questions correctly in class is an easy and consistent way to boost your Knowledge stat.
