When I need to describe myself (for instance in a letter to a potential employer or the like), should I use a NP headed by "person" as a subject complement, or just an AdjP? That is, which of the following would be better – (1) or (2)?
- I am a driven [any number of additional adjectives] and enthusiastic person.
- I am driven [any number of additional adjectives] and enthusiastic.
In my own language we tend to use the version with "person" a lot, but I have a feeling the opposite is true for English. Am I right about this, or are either option equally good?
