Agreed, except for the future part, seems pointless and cloy. Most people don't have any big plans beyond continued survival and it's dumb to let the players dictate the direction of their game with their 'story' - though overarching 'convictions' of the sort in pic related are fine. If I feel like more variety, or need to spur a player to not treat his PC's as nothing more than pawns on a chessboard, I encourage them to write 'past career' and a few personality traits (hot-tempered, etc) or have them roll on whatever tables. Players need to play with the hand they're dealt, building their PC into something interesting around it; giving them non-random agency to design their PC undermines D&D's core gameplay, it's just bad game design, caving into whiney player entitlement.
