Personality Profile For Sinclair Lewis

Sinclair Lewis

The following is a personality profile of Sinclair Lewis based on his work.

Sinclair Lewis is unconventional and somewhat inconsiderate.

He is unstructured, he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. He is laid-back as well: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, Sinclair Lewis is also intermittent: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.

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.
