Personality Profile For William S Burroughs

William S Burroughs

The following is a personality profile of William S Burroughs based on his work.

William S Burroughs is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.

He is imaginative, he has a wild imagination. He is unstructured as well: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. But, William S Burroughs is also unconcerned with art: he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys.

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

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.
