Jane Austen Character Quiz

Because I had nothing better to do (like finish reading Mansfield Park, or write Sunday school lessons, or rest, or watch the long Pride and Prejudice again)...

You scored as Elinor Dashwood, As Marianne's older sister, Elinor lives at the other end of the emotional spectrum. She rarely reveals her intense feelings and is more concerned with being honest and loyal than having what she deserves. Even though her intentions are pure, she sets herself up for loss by constantly placing other people before her own needs. Overall, Elinor is gentle and rational but is just as capable of radical emotions (despite her withholding them) as her sister.

Which Jane Austen Female Sidekick Are You?

(To be fair, I'm not sure this character is in the book. I think it is a brother in the book.)

I took multiple quizzes on which character I am, and I conclude that I am exactly between Elinor Dashwood and Elizabeth Bennett. And there is a bit of Fanny Price in me which doesn't show up because I refuse to accept their stereotypes of her character. They always consider her high morals a fault. But I am not as persuadable as she. My opinions are decided. Actually I don't think she's an option in this quiz.

Do you think Jane Austen got it wrong, though, because I think Mr. Knightley is the best hero? I mean I like Mr. Darcy, and he's probably next on my list, I really enjoy the selfless superiority Mr. Knightley has to Emma. And Henry Tilney is clever, witty, and kind as well. I think he benefits from being seen beside all the silly people in Northanger Abbey, though.

You scored as Knightley, Your ideal hero is most like Mr. Knightley of Emma! He probably gives you kind lectures to help you in certain matters, though he does these out of true devotion and in your best interests. Others look to him for his wisdom and good sense. He is generous and steadfast, though not afraid to politely argue with you. The two of you enjoy a challenging, sweet partnership and are most likely very active in your community.

Depending on the day I can't even decide which book I like best. Also depending on the day, I wouldn't be surprise if my answers were sufficiently different to alter the top contenders in the results of the quizzes.

You scored as Pride and Prejudice, You love books with unconventional heros and just like Elizabeth Bennet you tend to fall for people that at first you dislike!

If you ladies take the quizzes, do let me know what results you got.

By the way, is anyone else out there counting down the weeks until we can see the new Masterpiece Theater Jane Austen movies?

To God be all glory.

While I'm certainly not a lady, I was curious to see what Jane Austen "hero" I might be like. So, I took the "boyfriend/husband" quiz and just turned the questions around, trying to be honest with myself about myself (although I sometimes do not like to be). A few questions were not really applicable to me, so I had to kind of fudge. So, here yo go!

You scored as a Col. Brandon
Your husband/boyfriend is most like Col. Brandon of Sense & Sensibility! He is very attuned to your tastes and enjoys sharing them with you. While he resists being flashy, he is very generous, though he will never be overbearing, even if he is correct. The two of you engage in many pursuits together and enjoy a romantic, steady relationship.
