The following is a personality profile of Niccolo Machiavelli based on his work.
Niccolo Machiavelli is unconventional and shrewd.
He is intermittent, he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. He is unstructured as well: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. But, Niccolo Machiavelli is also unconcerned with art: he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for organization.
He is also relatively unconcerned with taking pleasure in life: he prefers activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment. 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.
