The following is a personality profile of Alain De Botton based on his work.
Alain De Botton is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Alain De Botton is also unstructured: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for connectedness.
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.
