The following is a personality profile of Jack London based on his work.
Jack London is genial, expressive and confident.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is confident as well: he is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time. But, Jack London 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.
