Following are a few brief sentences that tell us some of the more common traits of their personalities. John Adams Adams was known to be impetuous, intense and often vehement.

He didn’t include himself in the calculations, because he, of course, was the boss. His talents were best used telling the others what to do. He called in his most reliable worker, Brady, and in
