The following is a personality profile of Charles Dickens based on his work.
Charles Dickens is expressive.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is laid-back as well: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, Charles Dickens is also calm-seeking: he prefers activities that are quiet, calm, and safe.
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 helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
