Personality Profile For Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson

The following is a personality profile of Bill Bryson based on his work.

Bill Bryson is unconventional.

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

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

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
