Pope Francis also said that he did not want to move into the official papal apartments because he does not like living alone. He said: “”It’s a personality problem. I need to live with people. If I lived alone, I would feel a bit isolated and it wouldn’t be good for me.”

He added: “It would be bad and boring. A professor asked me about this and I told him ‘Listen professor it’s for psychiatric reasons.”
