Explanation

The word and suggests that the phrases before and after the conjunction will agree.

Isherwood has “fellow feeling for the laboring classes,” that is he is sympathetic with working people, and so wants to “engage as an equal” with them. You should anticipate a word like desire. Hankering and proclivity are the nearest synonyms. Disinclination and unwillingness are the opposite of what you want (implacability is also negative).

Joviality might seem attractive, but is more extreme than your clue of “fellow feeling.”

Hence options hankering, proclivity are best fit!
