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.
