George Orwell

Born Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), George Orwell was an English journalist, writer and critic. Orwell devoted his life to working against extremism, and in his description of how authoritarian regimes pervade our thoughts, he gave us a new vocabulary to understand totalitarianism. He is best remembered today for his innumerable essays, his novels - in particular Animal Farm and 1984 - and his longer non-fiction, especially The Road to Wigan Pier and Down and Out in Paris and London.

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.
