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.
