The following is a personality profile of Wendell Berry based on his work.
Wendell Berry is unconventional and boisterous.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Wendell Berry is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
