The following is a personality profile of Martin Amis based on his work.
Martin Amis is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.
He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is intermittent as well: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. But, Martin Amis is also unstructured: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
