Which Jane Austen character are you?

A burning question for all of us, I'm sure.  I mentioned doing one of these quizzes last night at Poker Night and was encouraged to post the links here for all to do and enjoy.

From my first quiz here I was Elinor Dashwood.  In my second quiz here I was Elizabeth Bennet with Elinor a close second. If you know me well, however, you will know I'm Elinor and not the gorgeous Lizzy, but I am quite pleased to be declared a little bit like Elizabeth as well.

Blokes do not fear, the second quiz includes all the male characters as well.  Hope you don't turn out to be Mr Collins!  Go and do the quizzes and then tell us who you are if you dare.

I got Marianne Dashwood both tmes, which is a bit ofma worry. I thought I was more like Lizzy! Kellie

Oh, you must be full of passion and romance! ;)

Lizzy for me!

Karen said...

Elinor all the way here :)

Deb said...

And not Marianne! :) I can see how you are Lizzy (except that you don't tend to jump to conclusions about people).

Deb said...

Yay for a fellow Elinor!

Hello, Catherine Morland speaking.

Deb said...

Hilarious! But she had a great love for exciting tales and this would fit.

I got Lizzie Bennet and then Mr Bingley/Jane Bennet. Happy with either of those results. My sisters would always tease me that I had to be Jane because I had a long neck (the same as the actress in the BBC miniseries) and then they'd add "like a horse!" with much hilarity...

Deb said...

Nice. Either of the Bennet's eldest daughters is a flattering personality to be alike. Now as to the "like a horse" remarks... that sounds like something one of the other Bennet sisters might have said. ;)

Meredith said...

I'm Elinor on the first - I've done it before and was Elinor then. And Jane Bennett on the second. Nice.
Too nice?

Meredith said...

Actually Jane Bennett would never brazenly ask for a dishwasher magnet! :-)

Deb said...

And then Jane wouldn't have got one and Mr Bingley would be constantly piling in dirty tea cups that drip on to their clean plates. Meanwhile, Elinor would have been stuck with an extra one perpetually thinking, "I wonder if I know anyone who would like this magnet?" Eventually, she'd give it to Marianne, I guess.

Anne Elliot at your service.

Deb said...

Certainly better than Mr Collins! Quite a favourite character of mine.

Deb said...

I've been getting a bit concerned that none of the blokes are turning up as Mr Darcy. So I did the second quiz myself ruthlessly picking those qualities I think Darcy would pick for himself. Just to see if it was even possible to come out as Darcy. Bingo! 100% Darcy. Interestingly, it came out as Darcy first, Knightley second and Elinor third. Interesting that Elinor shared some of those characteristics. Because of course this is a totally scientific and accurate test.....

Libby said...

My thoughts exactly Deb ;) but of course I never said it otherwise I wouldn't be Jane!

Ben McLaughlin said...

If it's any consellation I was 71% Mr Darcy. However, I was also 84% Mariane Dashwood. Not that I know who that is.

Deb said...

I'm going to pretend that you really don't know who Marianne is. 71% Mr Darcy is excellent! You can go and smugly brood in a corner now.

Deb said...

:)

Jean said...

Elinor Dashwood and Jane Bennett. Seems I'm the sensible type. I'd much rather be Lizzie Bennett!

Ben McLaughlin said...

I won't brood too smugly- I was also 50% ol' man Collins.

Deb said...

I can see you taking a bracing walk and getting the hem of your gown muddy. I'm sure you're part Lizzie!

Deb said...

Oh, Ben! Not Mr Collins!
