This being so, I would be interested to see if anyone knows what actually motivated him to travel so much, and if there are any INFJ's posting who have found travelling to be a necessary part of their self development!
    If you read much else that he wrote or about him he speaks of a pure lust for seeing the world and adventure- not an existential discomfort.

    George Orwell seems like a MUCH more likely candidate for INFJness any day

    Bleh, Joseph Conrad. Probably INFJ. Definitely annoying writer.

    He's generally classified as INFP. Although I certainly wouldn't mind accepting him into our ranks.

    Newsweek just had a piece on him that made him seem MUCH more INFJish- I think 2 weeks ago. Good piece actually.

    Yes, I REALLY wouldn't think Orwell was an INFP. *thinks about searching for existing thread on Orwell, then realises can't be bothered*
