the more humane...

Hello, everyone!

I'd like to express the following in a different way:

I believe the more you suffer, the more humane you become.

I'd like to know if I can rephrase the second part by adding "person", and how it would change. Is the following correct and idiomatic?:

:arrow: I believe the more you suffer, the more humane of a person you become.

Thank you in advance.

    You can add "person", but it would be "the more humane a person you become". There isn't really any difference in meaning between that and "the more humane you become".

    It doesn't sound idiomatic to me and I shudder to think what the moral of this saying might be...
