Personality Profile For Susan Orlean

Susan Orlean

The following is a personality profile of Susan Orlean based on her work.

Susan Orlean is guarded and inner-directed.

She is empathetic, she feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. She is independent as well: she has a strong desire to have time to herself. But, Susan Orlean is also intermittent: she has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.

More than most people, her choices are driven by a desire for discovery.

She is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: she cares more about making her own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what she does: she likes to set her own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
