The following is a personality profile of Barack Obama based on his work.
Barack Obama is social, boisterous and unconventional.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Barack Obama is also self-controlled: he has control over his desires, which are not particularly intense.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for organization.
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. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
