Personality Profile For Samuel Beckett

Samuel Beckett

The following is a personality profile of Samuel Beckett based on his work.

Samuel Beckett is a bit compulsive, somewhat critical and skeptical.

He is unconcerned with art, he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Samuel Beckett is also independent: he has a strong desire to have time to himself.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for sophistication.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
