1. Is He A Psychologist?
No. Robert Greene’s background is in classical studies, where he received a BA. He has had many different jobs but most of his income has come from writing and speaking about his books. His book Laws of Human Nature is about a psychological topic but it is not fully referenced like a psychology book might usually be.
2. What Happened To Him?
Greene had a serious stroke before the book Laws Of Human Nature came out in 2018. He has said that every book he does takes a lot out of him and usually leads to a decrease in his health.
He was born Jewish but doesn’t have a “hardcore spiritual practice.” He does find interest in studying Zen Buddhism.
4. What Is His Next Book?
Green’s next book is Law of the Sublime. We have all the current information about it here.
5. What Personality Type Is Robert Greene?
We will use the big 5 personality system since it is the one most referenced in the scientific literature. This will simply be a rough estimate and can’t replace a true NEO-PI-3 test.
Greene is likely high on Openness (+70 percentile) as evidenced by his philosophical and aesthetic interests. He probably more conscientious (+70th percentile) then the average person. You don’t write many best selling books over a long period of time if you aren’t able to make and meet deadlines. Greene’s chosen career is one that typically requires much alone time. From this we can guess that he is lower on extroversion (slightly below the 50th percentile).
It would be surprising if the person who wrote famous books on power and control weren’t at least lower on agreeableness than the average person (roughly below the 50th percentile). However, the emphasis on power might come as a sort of “shadow work.” This could mean he is actually more agreeable than he first appears and has simply learned to create an effective mask. This is the conclusion Jordan Peterson appears to lean towards in this interview. It should be noted that Greene seems to push back on this a bit.
Greene is probably slightly above average in neuroticism (above +50th percentile). We say this because you can see portions of his writing and speeches where he regularly mentions the effects of jealousy. That being said he doesn’t appear to have depression, noticeable anxiety, or other disorders that come from having high levels of neuroticism.
