Which Jane Austen Character Are You?

You are Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. You’re pretty arrogant, but that pride stems from the deep-seated knowledge that you are generally the most superior creature in any given room. The good news is that you are deeply loyal to your family, and you have a generous and charitable streak, even though most people don’t notice because you are too busy practicing a large vocabulary of stern looks.

This might seem like a surprising result, but it’s actually quite scientific, in that Josephine did the quiz imagining herself to be me and got the same result, too.

I suppose this means I shall have to finish reading Pride and Prejudice. which happens to be one of those books that I’ve started several times, but never finished, which is curious, given that it’s not exactly a turgid read. [via]

  1. Bonus content in the comments: the other book which I only finished on about the sixth attempt was Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, which is even more curious, as it’s so short.

  2. “actually quite scientific”

    That’s a good phrase.

    It (unfairly) reminds me of:

    “Genetically, paedophiles have more genes in common with crabs than they do with you and me. Now that is scientific fact. There’s no real “evidence” for it but it is scientific fact.”

  3. When I say words like “actually quite scientific”, Dan B, you must remember that I am a trained Political Scientist.

  4. No, I did the quiz imagining to be me! We are *both* Mr Darcy! What do you think this says about our future? (Like your mother, I forget the plots of Jane Austen novels as soon as I have read them, all the better to read them again, so I am at a loss on this matter.)

  5. Oh, I see. I misinterpreted your use of the second person pronoun in your email message. Sorry. Well, then: we are both Mr Darcy, but perhaps in a less scientifically-grounded way.
