Personality Profile For Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky

The following is a personality profile of Fyodor Dostoevsky based on his work.

He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Fyodor Dostoevsky is also empathetic: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them.

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

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.
