The following is a personality profile of Wendell Berry based on his work.
Wendell Berry is unconventional and boisterous.
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, Wendell Berry is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
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.
