I Respect Her the Most

Filed under: Entertainment — lmwalker @ 6:53 pm

My results aren’t terribly surprising, although I would much prefer Mr. Bingley (or Mr. Darcy, for that matter) to Edward Ferrars.

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.

Indeed, when I went back for my tie-breaker question, I ended up with

You scored as Elizabeth Bennet.

As one of Austen’s most beloved characters, Elizabeth Bennet represents what most women would like to become: strong, independent, and loyal. Of course, she has her faults including a stubborn will of iron and a clinging to first impressions. Overall, Lizzie is bright and lovable…something to admire and aspire to.

Which Jane Austen Character are You?

  1. Hmmmm…Emma is one of my least favorite characters, but at least she is redeemed in the end and gets Mr. Knightley. Perhaps I have always disliked her simply because she reminded me of myself…

    You scored as Emma Woodhouse. Emma is possibly one of the most loyal characters of Austen, always wanting better for those around her and doing all she possibly can to make it happen. Her motives sometimes get in the way of her good intentions and her own opinions can end up ruling her actions, but she has a good heart. She loves to be social and is welcoming to most, unless they are too silly to tolerate. While she sometimes changes her behavior to make others feel comfortable, she knows who she is and is always bettering herself.Which Jane Austen Character are You?

  3. Fun! But, I still don’t get Tilney in the end… It stinks to be in the wrong book. 😦

  4. She is not my favorite Austen character but I have always liked her. Is there a quiz to find out which Austen male you get to have or are we each stuck with our story counterparts?

  5. Ack! Gack!

    Ask and you shall…. receive……….

    I think I am going to go back and change my answers.

    You scored as 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.
