The following is a personality profile of Daniel D Chiras based on his work.
Daniel D Chiras is shrewd, skeptical and tranquil.
He is imaginative, he has a wild imagination. He is philosophical as well: he is open to and intrigued by new ideas and loves to explore them. But, Daniel D Chiras is also independent: he has a strong desire to have time to himself.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for modernity.
He is relatively unconcerned with both achieving success and taking pleasure in life. He makes decisions with little regard for how they show off his talents. And he prefers activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
