"Error found when loading /home/user/.profile" upon login

"Error found when loading /home/user/.profile" upon login

Hello, I had a really quick question. Right after I log in, there is a prompt with a red “X” that says the following:

Error found when loading /home/user/.profile

awk: read error (is a directory)

As a result the session will not be configured correctly.
You should fix the problem as soon as feasable.

I tried using chmod to give +rwx permissions to .profile as I thought that would give permissions to read and write; however, this has not seemed to work. Everything else works fine after I log in, but I didn’t know what the severity of this error message was. Would anyone be able to offer some insight on this problem? Thank you all so much!
