The following is a personality profile of Thomas Sowell based on his work.
Thomas Sowell is shrewd, skeptical and can be perceived as indirect.
He is imaginative, he has a wild imagination. He is philosophical as well: he is open to and intrigued by new ideas and loves to explore them. But, Thomas Sowell is also unstructured: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for modernity.
He is relatively unconcerned with both tradition and taking pleasure in life. He cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. And he prefers activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
