Personality Profile For George Orwell

George Orwell

The following is a personality profile of George Orwell based on his work.

George Orwell is shrewd, somewhat inconsiderate and can be perceived as indirect.

He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is unconcerned with art as well: he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys. But, George Orwell is also intermittent: he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.

More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
