Pokémon with 31 IVs in all 6 IVs will always have the chararistics “Takes plenty of siestas”, “Likes to thrash about”, “Capable of taking hits”, “Mischevious”, “Somewhat vain” and “Alert to sounds”.

It’s worth mentioning chararistics have no impact on a Pokemon’s base stats, only a Pokemon’s EV gain, rendering chararistics absolutely useless in competitive, or in-game.

I’m happy to help :)
While the information above is correct, I feel inclined to add that the characteristic the Pokémon ends up having is determined by its Personality Value, a hidden 32-bit integer unique to each Pokémon, which is, for all intents and purposes, completely random.

Yes, the characteristic will always be one that may indicate max IV, The Stat that is chosen to be represented by the characteristic is determined by personality values.
