Personality Profile For William Faulkner

William Faulkner

William Faulkner is a bit compulsive and excitable.

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, William Faulkner is also content: he is content with his level of accomplishment and does not feel the need to set ambitious goals.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for efficiency.

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. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
