What is was the personality of Roman Emperor Claudius?

Claudius was on the whole an intelligent man, however he was never trained for public life except for a brief time during his nephew Caligula's reign. Consequently, he relied on others to help him in making decisions. He was criticized for relying on advise from his freedmen and his wives. But on the whole that advice must have been good because the treasury was refurbished after Caligula's wild spending and his military reforms were sound. He was a guy who would listen to others and not think he knew it all.
