Personality Profile For Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse

The following is a personality profile of Hermann Hesse based on his work.

Hermann Hesse is unconventional.

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, Hermann Hesse 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 self-expression.

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.
