The Jane Austen Character Quiz.

I think it is because I subscribed to 'TEEN in my tween years that I like taking quizzes, especially fun ones which absolutely have no scientific bases or any grounding in reality, and this interweb of ours has made it ever so easy to stumble across these ridiculous quizzes. (Lest you think I seek these things out, and spend copious amounts of time doing them, rest assured, the weather is too nice these days to do anything so silly in doors at a computer.)

I've recently re-read five of Jane Austen's novels. (All except Northanger Abbey, which I am still trying to get a copy of the Winchester Austen of.) And when I saw a Jane Austen Character Quiz, I thought "I should absolutely take that!" I am not sure why I felt that way after the tragic results of the Sex and the City Character Quiz, (100% Stanford Blach - twice) but obviously I took the online quiz. Before I get to my results, I should mention that the options were only the female protagonists of the six books, Marianne & Eleanor Dashwood, Elizabeth Bennet, Fanny Price, Emma Woodhouse, Anne Elliot, and Catherine Morland. That being said, I scored a tie: 85% Emma Woodhouse and Marianne Dashwood. This I do not buy.

There are so many reasons to snuff the results of this online quiz, but I'm not going to lie, I like Emma and Marianne a whole lot more than 100% Stanny (TWICE). But for all of you Jane Austen-ites out there, know that I completely realize that I am totally Mary Crawford, Fanny Price's frienemy from Mansfield Park, blended with Lady Catherine de Bourgh's daughter in Pride & Prejudice, and absolutely not Emma Woodhouse, except for how snobby she is... anyway, if you want to take the quizfarm quiz, you could click here. And if you do, will you please tell me your results?

Haha, I'm split 65% Elinor and Marianne Dashwood which is hilarious because they are opposites.

You are NOT Catherine De Burgh's gross daughter! Although if you had studied music, you would have been a proficient.

I got Fanny Price. I haven't read Mansfield Park yet though, so now I better.

By the way, I never take quizzes, but you post intrigued me!

split between elizabeth bennet and anne elliot. not sure how those two people could exist within one person, but perhaps that explains a lot about me.
