The following is a personality profile of Erich Fromm based on his work.
Erich Fromm is unconventional and somewhat inconsiderate.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is unstructured as well: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. But, Erich Fromm is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for organization.
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.
