The following is a personality profile of Vincent Van Gogh based on his work.
Vincent Van Gogh is a bit compulsive.
He is intermittent, he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, Vincent Van Gogh is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
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.
