The following is a personality profile of Jonathan Swift based on his work.
Jonathan Swift is expressive and boisterous.
He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, Jonathan Swift is also confident: he is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time.
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 independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
