Myrtle Wilson is very materialistic. She is unsatisfied with her husband's small repair shop and doesn't like her life as the wife of a mechanic. She is incredibly selfish and self-centered as is evidenced by her affair with Tom.

George Wilson is a more meek man. He seems to be content with his life...that is until he discovers that his wife is cheating on him. In taking the ending of the novel into consideration, one could say that George is passive-aggressive; he lets everyone walk all over him (Myrtle, in particular) and then, when he can't take anymore, lashes out in with intense rage and anger.
