The following is a personality profile of Randall Jarrell based on his work.
Randall Jarrell is unconventional and expressive.
He is intermittent, he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, Randall Jarrell is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
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. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
