The following is a personality profile of Gore Vidal based on his work.
Gore Vidal is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.
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, Gore Vidal is also proud: he holds himself in high regard, satisfied with who he is.
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.
