Personality Profile For Neil Postman

Neil Postman

The following is a personality profile of Neil Postman based on his work.

Neil Postman is shrewd, skeptical and can be perceived as indirect.

He is philosophical, he is open to and intrigued by new ideas and loves to explore them. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, Neil Postman is also unconcerned with art: he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for discovery.

He is relatively unconcerned with both tradition and taking pleasure in life. He cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. And he prefers activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
