Charles Darwin personality

Charles DarwinCharles Darwin - English Naturalist (1809-1882)
Charles Darwin studied classics, medicine, and theology, but it was not until he took a position as a naturalist on the HMS Beagle in 1831 that he found his true calling. During the voyage, Darwin became certain of the gradual evolution of species. After more than 20 years refining his ideas, and by this time battling ill health, he published the controversial On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, in 1859. This was followed by several other volumes. Darwin was not the first naturalist to propose the idea of evolution, but is probably its best known proponent.

Charles Darwin’s Handwriting

Darwin’s handwriting has the light, airy quality often associated with the scripts of philosophers and other intellectual types. Light pressure and large intervals between words and lines create islands of space that serve to isolate him on a social level, but simultaneously give him room to think. Darwin was clearly a * loner who required a great deal of time and space on his own in which to develop the ideas that proliferated in his cerebral upper zone.

Charles Darwin’s Relationships
Considering the wide spatial arrangement and small middle zone of the writing sample, anyone in a relationship with Darwin would have had to be highly independent and happy to amuse themselves. He could be seen as an absent-minded professor type, with little patience for the niceties of polite conversation. He was probably the type of person who is most comfortable working for long periods of time alone in his study and who often forgets to come down for dinner. It is likely that Darwin was insensitive to the emotional needs of the people around him, not because he did not care, but simply because he was too wrapped up in his own ideas to be aware of them.

Charles Darwin?

Does anyone know any facts about Charles Darwin besides that he discovered the theory of evolution by selective breeding.
he didnt discover evolution, he got facts that led up to it and it was natural selection not selective breeding. oops!!!

Believe he travelled on a boat in the South Pacific and then he caught a disease and spent most of his time indoors, but you can double check these facts on Google or Wikipedia! :)
