The following is a personality profile of William James based on his work.
William James is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.
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, William James is also proud: he holds himself in high regard, satisfied with who he is.
