Emma Quiz

My second quiz is now completed!  If you wish to take it, comment on this post with the answers you choose. (Remember to check back or check the 'email follow-up comment' box, because I will comment again with your result!!) (Example: 1.a; 2.c; 3.b; etc.) Tip: You can open the comment box and be typing the answers as you go along.    Have fun!

Which Lady From Emma Are You Most Like?
1.      How do you handle people who annoy you?
a.      I try to be sympathetic with them and think of more than just my own feelings.
b.      I try not to let it show when I am around them, but I complain about them to people who are close to me. I also avoid them as much as possible.
c.       People do not often annoy me, but I am not always the best judge of character.
d.      I mostly put up with them, but those who won’t leave me alone do cause me to feel overwhelmed.
e.      I more often find myself trying to get other people not to be annoyed with each other.
f.        I am usually patronizing towards them, although I do not mind talking bad about them to others.
2.      What sort of influence do you have on others?
a.      I do not try to influence people; I am more often seeking it myself.
b.      I influence very directly – I often do not take ‘no’ for an answer.
c.       I can strategically influence people of meager understanding, and others gently by providing factual information; I usually have no influence at all on strong-willed people.
d.      If those close to me ask for my advice or opinion, I give it.
e.      I advise softly, having some influence on those who care about my opinion.
f.        I generally keep my thoughts to myself.
3.      Your ideal gentleman…
a.      I am not picky. As long as he can provide a good home and thinks I’m wonderful, I am quite ready to fall in love and marry.
b.      Someone kind and gentle.
c.       I do not expect to marry, or even fall in love; he would have to be someone very special.
d.      A good, respectable man who will adore me.
e.      Will be handsome in looks, eloquent in speech, and will sweep me off my feet.
f.        A worthy man. I will make him happy and love him with all my heart.
4.      Suppose you are learning something new.
a.      I persevere until I can do it very well.
b.      Actually, I am more used to teaching than learning.
c.       A project can engross me for a while, but I have been known not to finish to my best ability – although I usually get pretty good.
d.      If it is something I am convinced is worthwhile, I will learn everything I can.
e.      If I have sufficient encouragement, companionship, and assistance I will have a nice time and I might do well.
f.        In most circumstances, I believe it does not take me long to exceed others in ability and knowledge.
5.      What are your thoughts on change?
a.      I am not used to it, but if it is an improvement, I welcome it.
b.      Change is not generally a good thing, and even if it is, it may take a while to get used to, or I may need to be talked into accepting it.
c.       As long as it is in my favor, it’s just fine.
d.      Sometimes a different situation is refreshing, but I am usually happy as I am.
e.      If it benefits everybody involved, change has my approval.
f.        I can be happy in many different situations; however, I do not respond when a change I expect does not take place.
6.      What qualities do you most admire?
a.      Devotion and affection
b.      Honesty and integrity/wit
c.       Sincerity and constancy

c.       Be snobby
d.      Avoid seeing the faults in people

f.        Let others do your thinking for you
8.      Acquaintances might say you are…
a.      Sweet and good-tempered
b.      Caring and kind
c.       Talented and pretty

In answer to your comment:
That sounds very interesting, I might like to do that. How does it work? But, when in June is it? I'll be unavailable part of the time, too. :)
(Did you see that before? I put it in answer to your other comment.)

Charity U said...

No, I neglected to subscribe before and forgot until now. :P It would be anytime inbetween June 6 and 17. I would add you as an author. If you want more info, I could email you...or you could email me. photographer4ever832[at]gmail[dot]com

How lovely! I'm glad I got Jane Fairfax, I've always been interested in her story. Isabella Knightley would have been nice too, but I'm definitely not as much of a worrier as she tended to be. ;)
Thanks again for this lovely quiz!

Melody said...

Your result:
Miss Emma Woodhouse

Thank you for taking the quiz! I tried to set up the questions at random so one can't figure out which answer goes with which character by looking at the letters.

Katherine C. said...

Hello Melody, I can't remember if I answered you on this one. It's kind of both A and B. I'm detailed oriented at work though so I will go with b.

Melody said...

I didn't get a comment from you before this. ;-)

Okay, if b, then your result is Mrs. Isabella Knightley. However, if you wish to look at it as a tie, then you are half Emma Wooodhouse and half Isabella! ;-) Well, they are sisters, after all.

In fact, you answered complete Emma except for one question! Usually people have a large variety.

Thank you for taking the quiz!

Anonymous said...

Really? That´s great!:) Emma is my favourite heroine and I´ve always thought that we have much in common (except that I´ve not found my Mr. Knightley yet ;) )

BTW, it was a pleasure to take the quiz and I think you did a great job with your blog! :)

Jane

Melody said...

Jane,
I'm glad to find another Emma admirer! I like her a lot; actually I know a lot of people who do, but a few who don't and then I feel like shaking my fist at them. haha ;-) She's definitely one of my top-3 Jane Austen heroines.

I hope you find your Mr. Knightley! (Don't we all?)

I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz, and I hope to "see you" on my blog again! =) Happy New Year.

Thanks so much for the awesome quiz and your quick reply. This really seems to be a fairly accurate quiz as my sister and I were talking the other day about how much I am like Isabella Knightley! My type of guy is a lot like Mr. John Knightley, too. By the way, did I have any runners-up in the quiz? You really should consider making quizzes for the rest of the Jane Austen books!

Melody said...

Anonymous,
You're welcome! :) And thank you. You did have a few different answers, but I think they were all different when they weren't Isabella so I guess you didn't have any runners-up. I've made a quiz for Pride and Prejudice, which you possibly already knew, but if you didn't it can be found on the sidebar. Also the Jane Austen heroines in general. :) Perhaps I will make another quiz sometime soon! Thinking them up can be quite tricky though.

Thanks so much for your comment!

You are a tie between Anne Weston and Jane Fairfax. :)

Hubers said...

Wow...you sure comment back fast. Just curious, what Jane Austen character are you?

~Kristalyn

Melody said...

Kristalyn,
Haha, so do you. ;)
Do you mean from this particular quiz or Jane Austen heroines in general? If the latter, I'm not really sure. My result from quizzes is generally Marianne Dashwood or Fanny Price, sometimes Elizabeth Bennet. All in different ways. ;)

Hubers said...

That is a wide range :)

What character is you favorite? I am Elinor Dashwood and when I found that out She became one of my favorites :)

~Kristalyn

Melody said...

Kristalyn,
Pinning down a favorite is really hard! I love them all in different ways. I generally say my favorite is Elizabeth, but it's pretty hard to say. I also love Emma, which I know because every time anyone says something critical about her I always have to jump to her defense! ;) It's rather fun having a heroine with faults who changes and learns throughout the story, and the more I know about it the better I can understand her. I greatly admire Fanny Price, and can't bear to have people speak against her, either (as they often do!) and I delight in Marianne and Catherine, especially in the ways I identify with them. ;)

Melody said...

Rachel Ann,
I know... funny, isn't it? I guess that's what sometimes happens with 8-question quizzes where you're just choosing whichever answer happens to sound the most like you and they are all about different things. ;)

I wish there was a quiz for Jane Austen's secondary heroines.. there's one on ProProfs now but one on this site would be so much better!
I've always wondered why nobody thinks of including Eleanor Tilney in quizzes. She's a delightful character! Eleanor, and Jane Bennet, and Jane Fairfax. Hehe.

Miss Elliot said...

Hi!
I linked to your blog from Miss Amy Dashwood's, and I couldn't resist the quiz!! I have not seen this version of Emma, but I have read the book and seen the 1997 Mirimax version. So here we go.

Melody said...

Miss Elliot,
Your answers wound up as a tie for Isabella, Mrs. Weston and Jane Fairfax. Heh... sorry, that's all I got. ;)
Yes, Christina Cole did play Blanche in that version and Mrs. Elton in the 2009 Emma. She's really good at being obnoxious but I've also seen her as a sweet character and she pulled that off too! Brilliant actress! :)

That's cool! You know, when I do what Jane Austen heroine am I in general, I always come up with Elinor. So I guess that Isabella is the only Emma heroine that fits me at all :)
