Personality Profile For Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius

The following is a personality profile of Marcus Aurelius based on his work.

Marcus Aurelius is shrewd, somewhat inconsiderate and informal.

He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is unstructured as well: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life. But, Marcus Aurelius is also proud: he holds himself in high regard, satisfied with who he is.

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.
