Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You?

Quite a while ago I was wanting to write a Jane Austen Heroine quiz, but I kept thinking I would wait until I'd read all the novels, because I wasn't going to be one of those who writes quizzes based from the movie characters. Well, that goal was achieved nearly a year ago, and I still hadn't written my quiz! Finally I remembered and got around to it... so here it is!

Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You Most Like?
As with my two other quizzes (P&P Misses and Emma Ladies), comment with your answers, and I will respond with your result. Someday I might put these onto a website... but for now, figuring out your results is rather fun for me and I don't trust them quiz-making sites... (Yes, the grammatical error was intentional.) 
The only thing different this time is that for your result, I'll link to a picture that will say "You are most like... [heroine's name and picture]". 

Have fun!

1. Which best describes your feelings about attending social functions?

a) How exciting!!!

b) It depends on who else is going. If there is no one interesting there, I will sit in a corner lost in my own thoughts, reading a book, or playing the piano if there happens to be one.

c) In such cases the company is, I must admit, often undesirable, but I try to make the best of it, converse with anyone who wants to talk to me, and hope for an intelligent conversation or two.

d) I greatly enjoy being out in company. An opportunity to laugh and converse with people I like is always very welcome, and observing people is a hobby of mine. I like to talk to many people, but a tete-a-tete with a good friend is most desirable.

e) I do not often go to social functions—but when I do have the rare opportunity, I prefer to be little noticed, and to listen rather than talk.

f) I am almost sure to enjoy myself, especially since what events I do attend (or host) are with intimate friends. I am often sought after outside of my set, but I prefer to be selective. Some people’s houses, you know, I would rather not be seen at…

g) It depends on the guests. I like to be in the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; their popularity or social status is less important.

2. How are you viewed by others in a crowd?

a) The shy one over in the corner who doesn’t speak unless spoken to.

b) The witty girl who gets along with mostly everybody—everybody who wants to be gotten along with, anyways.

c) Someone who is not much noticed besides for the people who already know her.

d) The girl who can be (and lets herself be) read like a book—if she’s upset, you’ll know it; if she’s happy, you’ll know it; if she likes you, you’ll know it; if she doesn’t like you, oh yes, you’ll know that too.

e) A sweet girl, not of much consequence; she will always be polite, and her conversation can be amusing, though she probably doesn’t mean it to be.

f) A nice young lady—slightly reserved and always in control of herself, always courteous and graceful, capable of good conversation.

g) She can tend to be a little snobbish and a bit too aware of her high social consequence, but still tries to acts respectful and good-natured to everyone.

3. In your family, you are closest to…

a) Your father. He dotes on you, and you dote on him.

b) Your mother in that she understands you best; but you and your sister are quite close, inseparable, and loyal at all times.

c) Your sister. She is your sole confidante and best friend.

d) You’re not at all close with anybody in your immediate family, but the one you get along with best is a younger sister; she looks up to you, and you do your best to guide her.

e) You and your family are just not on the same page—you can’t be close to any of them. You don’t fit in with them—much to their irritation.  

f) Rather a combination between your mother and your sister—you love them very much and get along well, even though you don’t see eye-to-eye on all subjects.

g) You don’t really have a family member you’re closest to; you dearly love them all.


4. Do you like reading?
a) Oh, yes! Well novels, anyway. Especially suspenseful ones. Reading is one of my favorite things to do in my spare time, and I love discussing books.

b) Reading is one of my passions; especially romance, tragedy… things with emotional depth.  You will always find me with a book.

c) I do enjoy a novel now and then, but I have little patience for deep, educational sorts of literature.

d) Oh, yes. I find reading an excellent way to improve my mind, and when reading, I can feel a sort of independence I seldom experience.

e) Yes, I do enjoy reading, when I have the time.

f) Very much; though I do enjoy a variety of pastimes.

g) I find reading most enjoyable and worthwhile. Discussing books & poetry with others can also be quite pleasant and interesting.

5. What are your thoughts on music? Can you play?

a) I am very interested in music and have a great love for it. People seem to think me a great proficient at the piano, and I am often sought after to play.

b) I play and sing a little, but very ill indeed. I have always supposed that to be my own fault, though, because I would not take the trouble of practicing.

c) I like music and enjoy concerts and such, but never had the patience to learn to play, I’m afraid.

d) I am a great admirer, but unfortunately not a musician.

e) I play well enough to get by – I tend to feel unpleasantly inferior when I see a true proficient play.

f) Oh! I could not live without music! If you have never seen me at the pianoforte, I must wonder at your ever having seen me at all. Pray do not ask me about music unless you desire me to go on all day.

g) I have never had the opportunity to learn, but music is delightful.


6. Which most accurately describes your looks?

a) Dark coloring, on the shorter side; people say you are very pretty.

b) Your figure is not perfect, but it is light and pleasing; your dark, merry eyes have been especially admired.

c) Pretty in a quiet sort of way—not always noticed at first.

d) Your height and figure are to much advantage, as is your complexion.

e) You are rather past your bloom, but in your best looks you have been much admired.

f) You never were a pretty child, but as you got older, your looks have blossomed enough so that you are sometimes called pretty.

g) Your looks are charming—such good health and bloom, and a true hazel eye!

7. Choose the group of virtues most applicable to yourself. You are…
a) Practical, cautious, unselfish
b) Gentle, modest, discerning
c) Witty, bright, very loyal
d) Intelligent, patient, sensitive
e) Passionate, talented, devoted
f) Cheerful, clever, amusing
g) Imaginative, candid, innocent

8. You can tend to be…
a) Too easily influenced 
b) Judgmental
c) Gullible
d) Meddlesome
e) Withdrawn
f) Imprudent
g) Shy and timid

Yes, I do know what you mean on #7...heehee. (But FYI, I think you chose well. Heehee.)
And you are not "all of them" on number 8. Hahahaha, as far as I know. :D
Y'know, for some reason I always write quizzes with only 8 questions, and I'm not sure that's enough to have very accurate results. ;-)

Thanks for taking it everyone! I was excited to open my inbox this morning and see all the comments! :)

Miss Melody said...

Lauren,
Right now you are in a tie! Here's a question to break it:
Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?
a) Neither one, really. If my mind is made up, it is made up. Other people are what they are--I'll either like them or I won't.
b) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.
c) I influence others, but only to their advantage, of course. If people try to influence me, I do not appreciate it.


Miss Woodhouse, you are in a tie as well. Here is the question with your options:
Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?
a) I influence others, but only to their advantage, of course. If people try to influence me, I do not appreciate it.
b) I certainly do not try to influence others, but I suppose they might influence me, albeit indirectly.
c) People trying to influence me just makes me feel contrary, I think. I only try to influence others if they are someone for whom I care very much and I feel they are about to make a mistake.

Miss Woodhouse said...

My answer is 'c'

Miss Woodhouse, here is your result! Thanks for playing.

Lauren said...

Hi Melody

Hmm, To answer your question, I would say a. I don't really get influenced by others, and I don't think I influence anyone.

I love your quizzes by the way! I really enjoy doing them, and I find the results interesting. Although, it is always hard to answer. A lot of the questions about my personality depends on who I am with, which friends, or strangers.

So I'm not too surprised that my answers are hard to pin down.

Here I go rambling on about nothing.

~Lauren

Miss Melody said...

Lauren,
Your result! =)

Sorry some of the questions are difficult to answer. It's hard writing a quiz with the answers being accurate to the characters they represent, yet being identifiable to the people choosing answers... ugh. Even I find them hard to answer, and I'm like "Good grief, who wrote this? Oh... me." :P

Lauren said...

I'm Marianne!!!

Just out of curiosity, who were the other heroins I tied with?

Oh, and I do really enjoy this quiz, and they are good questions, so don't be sorry. I think it is always hard to answer quiz questions about yourself.

Thank you again for the quiz, it was most delightful!

Lauren,
The other two heroines you tied with were Emma Woodhouse and Anne Elliot.

Miss Elizabeth,
You're in a tie--here's another question for you!
Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?
a) I influence others, but only to their advantage, of course. If people try to influence me, I do not appreciate it.
b) Neither one, really. If my mind is made up, it is made up, and I won't try to change other people.

Miss Melody said...

My dear Lily of the Valley,
Wow! You had a large variety of answers, and right now you have a tie between two. Here is a tie-breaker question for you:
Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?
a) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.
b) People trying to influence me just makes me feel contrary, to be honest. I only try to influence others if they are someone for whom I care very much and I feel they are about to make a mistake.


Glad that you stopped by!! =)

Anonymous said...

Miss Melody, it is rather hard to decide between the two, but I would say that I am more of an "a" than "b" ; ) So officially, I shall choose "a".

I'm enjoying your blog!!

b)b) Neither one, really. If my mind is made up, it is made up, and I won't try to change other people.

Melody said...

Kayla,

Right now you're in a three-way tie! So one more question for you...

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.
b) If those very close to me seem to be doing something I find imprudent, I try my best to gently but rationally warn them.
c) People do try to influence me, and while I like to please them, I will always stand firm in what I know to be right; I rarely have the nerve or the right to try to influence others.

Rachel said...

Some of these questions were difficult to answer (too many good choices sometimes). I noticed at least one other person provided more than one answer for some, so if that's okay I am going to do that for a couple of the questions:

1. G
2. C & E (although if I had to pick one it would be E)
3. B
4. F
5. A
6. C
7. B & D (B if only one choice)
8. E

I'm looking forward to finding out what the result is. Definitely a more unique and thorough quiz compared to others online. :)

Rachel said...

Some of these questions were hard to answer, but each was thorough and well-written (in my opinion). I've included a couple choices for two of the questions, but I provided a preferred answer in case only one is allowed:

1. G
2. C & E (E if only one answer is allowed)
3. B
4. F
5. A
6. C
7. B & D (B if only one answer is allowed)
8. E

Melody said...

Rachel,
Often when people include an optional answer, I sort of use it instead of a tiebreaker-- kind of hard to explain. If I wasn't looking at which answer you'd choose if you were only doing one, this would be your result. Otherwise, here's a tiebreaker question. ;)

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.
b) Neither one, really. If my mind is made up, it is made up, and I won't try to change other people, though it may annoy me if their opinion differentiates from my own.
c) People do try to influence me, and while I like to please them, I will always stand firm in what I know to be right; I rarely have the nerve or the right to try to influence others.


I'm glad you found the quiz original! :) Sometimes I'm quite dissatisfied with the other ones online--one of the reasons I decided to make one!

Rachel said...

I will go ahead and answer the tie breaker question (more because I'm curious to see if it would possibly make a difference or not...although my guess is no).

Answer: A

Melody said...

Yes, that gives you the same result. Although if I'd ignored your second options altogether, B and C would have been your only choices there. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

You're in a tie! Please answer the following question and I'll have your result.

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) If those very close to me seem to be doing something I find imprudent, I try my best to gently but rationally warn them.
b) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.

I'd have to say a)...:)

Thanks!

Vanessa,
Heehee, well, I could hardly leave people hanging. :) I am thinking about putting the quiz up online somewhere though after a while...
This is your result, although you were close to getting both Elinor Dashwood and Anne Elliot (and as they have similar personalities I'd say you're probably closer to one of them, haha). :) Thanks for stopping by!

Catherine,

You're in a tie right now. Please answer the following question and I'll get back with you ASAP.

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) If those very close to me seem to be doing something I find imprudent, I try my best to gently but rationally warn them.
b) I am more influenced by others, if they are people I look up to.

Catherine said...

Uhhh... It's kind of hard but I'd have to say a).

Melody said...

Catherine,
I'm so sorry! I published your comment and then stored it without answering it. My best friend was here for a bit (check recent posts ;) ) so I was a bit distracted.

Anyway. Here is your result.

You're in a tie at present. Once you answer the following question I can give you your result:

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?
a) I certainly do not try to influence others, but I suppose they might influence me, albeit indirectly.
b) People trying to influence me just makes me feel contrary, I think. I only try to influence others if they are someone for whom I care very much and I feel they are about to make a mistake.

Please answer this tie-breaker question for your result:

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) If those very close to me seem to be doing something I find imprudent, I try my best to gently but rationally warn them.
b) People do try to influence me, and while I like to please them, I will always stand firm in what I know to be right; I rarely have the nerve or the right to try to influence others.

Miriam said...

Thank you Melody!

For the tie-breaker question I choose B.

As you see, I am. :) You're currently in a tie, so I'll need to have you answer one more question...

Do you influence others more often than being influenced yourself, or the other way around?

a) I do not normally try to influence others, but I suppose they might influence me, albeit indirectly.
b) People do try to influence me, and while I like to please them, I will always stand firm in what I know to be right; I rarely have the nerve or the right to try to influence others.
c) People trying to influence me just makes me feel contrary, I think. I know my own mind. I only try to influence others if they are someone for whom I care very much and I feel they are about to make a mistake.

Marianne Dashwood!!! That was certainly surprising, I did not at all think I would be like her; I was a very shy girl as a child (but have grown mostly out of it)and I much preferred quiet, gentle Edward to John Willoughby, and I do not share all her thoughts on love, but Marianne is young and spirited and is not silly or anything like that, she's smart and lovely, and has a loving family and ends up with Colonel Brandon. So, while I still am shocked, I am also pleased, thank you. haha

d) Neither one, really. If my mind is made up, it is made up, and I won't try to change other people; unless they're doing something I'm personally very strongly against.

Done,
You are a tie between Catherine Morland, Marianne Dashwood and Emma Woodhouse.

Danelle,
You're an equal mix of Elizabeth Bennet, Elinor Dashwood, Marianne Dashwood, and Emma Woodhouse. ...I guess you are just your own person. haha.

Lime,
You're a tie between Elinor and Marianne Dashwood and Emma Woodhouse.
