Personality Profile For Paul Theroux

Paul Theroux

The following is a personality profile of Paul Theroux based on his work.

Paul Theroux is a bit compulsive.

He is unconcerned with art, he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Paul Theroux is also empathetic: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
