David Hume (1711-1776) devoted himself from early youth to "philosophy and great learning." His Treatise of Human Nature was not well received on publication, but is now viewed as his masterpiece.

The following is a personality profile of David Hume based on his work.
David Hume 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, David Hume 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 organization.
He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
