Quiz With Me

I am Emma Woodhouse!

Take the Quiz here!




I just came across this fun quiz on a blog by another Amelia. Since Jane Austen is one of my all time favorite authors I had to know which heroine I am....

I must say, the results astounded me! I have always seen myself to be more of a Marianne. That could be due to the fact that when I was about 14 one of my good friends used to call my sister and me "Elinor and Marianne." Since then I have heard that once more and felt like it must be true...I mean twice in one life. LOL

The quiz I found says this:

"You are Emma Woodhouse of Emma! You like being the queen of your social circle (small and provincial as it may be), and feel it's your duty to help those less influential than you. You often meddle in the affairs of others, though you do it with a pure heart. You are often deluded in your flights of fancy, but your good intentions and creative spirit make you someone anyone could like. "

There are some similarities in this whole "Emma" comparison to myself, but I really am only going to accept it because Kate Beckinsale once played her and I think she is divine.

By further knowledge and in conclusion.... go with your first instincts when taking this quiz...my more accurate results are as follows:

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

"You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of silliness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed."

Maybe I just have a little of each...I find the latter to match me much better, actually it's scary close. Flaws and all.....

I am Elinor...I need to re-read the book to decide what I think about that! It's been YEARS since I last read it.

How Fun!! Here's mine, I have to say, it's pretty right on (which is unusual for me, these quizzes being close to right):

You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of silliness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.

"my pearl" for Sundays, and "Goddess Divine," but only on special occasions...

sigh~I need to watch that movie now...it is sooooo good!

LOL, I think I should re-take it...Emma really doesn't sound like me, and I've read it several times.

Although...Clueless is a rendition of the novel Emma and I always related in ways to "Cher" in that movie. LOL I still think I need to take this again.....I probably overthought the answers.

Ah-ha....I'll have to update my post. LOL When going with my instincts....

I'm Elizabeth Bennet, which is so me.

Erin said...

oh, and it says Elinor is:

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.

Not sure much of this applies to me but maybe the very last part.

I'm Marianne Dashwood. *sigh* How lovely!

Thanks for the fun quiz, Amelia!

Isn't that quiz fun? I think my results were what I hoped for (Elinor). Though I've gotton Elizabeth on other JA quizes. I've decided I'm a Elinor with a inner Elizabeth. :-)
