The following is a personality profile of William Wordsworth based on his work.
William Wordsworth is expressive.
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 Wordsworth is also confident: he is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time.
