The following is a personality profile of Arthur C Clarke based on his work.
Arthur C Clarke is unconventional, inner-directed and guarded.
He is unconcerned with art, he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Arthur C Clarke is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for modernity.
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.
