The following is a personality profile of Thomas Merton based on his work.
Thomas Merton is social and unpretentious.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is laid-back as well: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, Thomas Merton is also intermittent: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for connectedness.
Considers both independence and helping others to guide a large part of what he does. He likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them. And he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
