The following is a personality profile of James Thurber based on his work.
James Thurber is unconventional.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is laid-back as well: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, James Thurber is also intermittent: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.
