Gnomes are somewhat commonly portrayed as being technically or scientifically oriented, especially in areas other people wouldn't dare to dabble in because of the perceived (usually quite real) dangers. Another common trait is the habit of thieving, especially if the gnomes are hardly knee or waist high for adult humans (the size depends mostly on what sized the other sentient creatures besides humans and gnomes are). They're also generally genial or benevolent in nature.

They also appear as earth elementals or similar in some fantasy settings, especially those made by Japanese. The earth association is also present in some regional variants of gnomes.
