For all Jane Austen fans

I thought I’d share this quiz. I for reals answered the questions truthfully and this is what I got. I think it is because I’ve been reading so many SVH books lately.

    I got Mary!

    I am Mary. I am the least beautiful of all my sisters, and I have tried to make up for it by being very intelligent. I read too much. I have few opinions which I have not stolen from books. I preach to other people, and I show off as much as possible, even to the embarassment of my family.

  2. Winnie Egbert says:

    I am Jane. I am beautiful, but modest. I am caring and loving. I always try to help others before myself. Sometimes my naivete can blind me and leave me vulnerable to other people.

    I actually always rooted for Jane more than Elizabeth.

    Who’s your favourite Austen character ever? I’ve always adored Anne from Persuasion, and I love her totally over-the-top sisters just as great literary characters whom I’d never actually want to meet. I hated Fannie from Mansfield Park more than any character in any book, EVER. I’d rather be best friends with Amy Sutton than spend an hour with Fannie.

    I am Elizabeth. I am headstrong and intelligent. I love to be myself, and am very loyal to my family. I can sometimes be prideful and “prejudiced,” but I try to remain open minded and I usually regret past mistakes.

    Charlotte was a very close second though – which I think speaks to my pragmatic nature.

  4. Jessa Fields says:

    I’m Elizabeth too (85%)

    I have to admit I have never read a Jane Austen book in my life. It probably should have said I’m Cher Horowitz.

    Elizabeth 75%
    Charlotte 70%
    Jane 60%
    Mrs. Bennet 50%
    Kitty 45%
    Lydia 35%
    Mary 35%

    I’d rather be this Elizabeth than a certain size-6 twin we all love to hate!

    I read all the Austen books in college. English was one of my majors.

  6. Amber Tan says:

    Another non-size 6 Elizabeth (and Jane Austen fan)…

    Elizabeth 95%
    Charlotte 70%
    Jane 55%
    Lydia 30%
    Mrs. Bennet 25%
    Mary 20%
    Kitty 15%

    Cher Horowitz!?! BWAHAHAHA! Jessa Fields — you’re cracking me, girl. πŸ˜‰

    Ditto on hating Fanny in Mansfield Park, Winnie. Jane Eyre is my all-time favorite Austen character. I always loved that she was able to overcome any obstacle via her wits, sheer grit, and determination.

    BTW — Has anyone here taken the Inner Child quiz yet? http://www.quizilla.com/users/jsimner/quizzes/How%20Old%20is%20Your%20Inner%20Child%3F/

    ETA: My inner child is 45 today. Hmmm…looks like it’s time to break out my treasured Xena and Callisto dolls in an attempt to regain some lost youth. Aiiaiaiaia-iiiii!!!

  7. Winnie Egbert says:

    Yeah, these tests… I went through the whole thing and at the end it made me decide if I was more beautiful or more headstrong. Um, neither? Does that make me the plain, insipid Harriet Smith from Emma?

    Hee – I love the high school kids who post ‘Apply to be my girlfriend/boyfriend’ quizzes on that site. Jessica and Lila would totally do that.

    Can you tell I’m bored today? πŸ˜‰

  8. Amber Tan says:

    Somehow you seem a bit too feisty to be a “Harriet Smith” type, Winnie, and everybody’s beautiful online doncha-no. πŸ˜‰

    That is pretty funny re: the HS kids applying to be someone’s boyfriend/ girlfriend. I didn’t even notice until you mentioned it but it certainly does sound like something Lila and Jessica would do — especially Jessica who has dry-humped every guy in SV and then some.

    And just imagine their MySpace profiles! πŸ™‚

  9. Ellen K. says:

    Another Elizabeth here, with a close second for Charlotte.

    Lydia would be all over myspace!

    I used to hate Fanny (and her novel) until I read an awesome feminist essay on Mansfield Park in C.L. Johnson’s “Jane Austen: Women, Politics, and the Novel.” Now I pity more than despise her.

    Really dislike Edmund, though.

    BTW, check out “Jane Austen’s Guide to Dating” — full character quizzes and some pretty good love advice too. And Jennifer Crusie edited a cute book on Pride & Prejudice as chick lit, with a funny reality show version of P&P.

  10. Robyn says:

    Another Elizabeth over here. Not much of a Jane Austen reader, so it’s not meaning all that much to me.
    But it makes me wonder…
    Why oh why is there not a ‘which SVH character are you quiz?’

  11. katee says:

    Yay! I’m Jane. (At least I’m not Kitty, that would be a total bummer.)

    But my inner child is 45 AND I’m Elizabeth.

    bah…

    Kate

  12. Amber Tan says:

    Crap. I, too, am Elizabeth “Ingalls” Wakefield followed by Enid.

    Elizabeth 75%
    Enid 50%
    Jessica 35%
    Lila 20%

    Omigawd! I, like, totally need a makeover! πŸ˜‰

  13. Jessa Fields says:

    Ew, I’m Elizabeth Wakefield (70%) Followed by Enid, Lila and Jessica with a mere 15%.

    My inner child is 10 years old. Which is probably why I like the Dairi Burger so much.

  14. Onnie says:

    I think I am the only Charlotte here…not sure if that makes me feel special, or just “odd”

    You scored as a Charlotte
    I am Charlotte. I am friendly and kind. I am also responsible, and ready to accept a proposal of marriage from a man even though I may not love him. I value security.

  15. Melody_Grey says:

    I forgot about the Inner Child Quiz.

    My inner child is sixteen years old!

    Life’s not fair! It’s never been fair, but while adults might just accept that, I know something’s gotta change. And it’s gonna change, just as soon as I become an adult and get some power of my own.

  16. Nina says:

    I am Mary. I am the least beautiful of all my sisters, and I have tried to make up for it by being very intelligent. I read too much. I have few opinions which I have not stolen from books. I preach to other people, and I show off as much as possible, even to the embarassment of my family.

    Ouch.

  17. Eli says:

    I am Elizabeth and Elizabeth. I’ll take Austen’s Elizabeth, but I don’t want to be like Saint Liz of Wakefield. Ew! I need to go steal someone’s boyfriend now, and knock the Elizabeth (W) out of me.

  18. Caroline says:

    @Amber: Jane Eyre is actually a Charlotte Bronte character, not Austen. But I do love her too! Ever seen the Timothy Dalton miniseries?

    Count me in as another hater of Fanny from Mansfield Park. Favorite Austen story is Persuasion. I love love LOVE the book, and the movie with Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root is just as excellent (and so true to the book!).

  19. Amber Tan says:

    @Caroline — Many thanks for the correction! Funny how I completely spaced that. WTF?

    Guess I’m not operating too well right now due to lack of sleep…kind of going through a seasonal depression thing that keeps me up at night. I absolutely hate the holiday season with a flaming hot passion even though my house does get excessively clean this time of year. (Since I can’t sleep, I clean and rearrange furniture then sleepwalk through the day.)

    And I’ve never seen the Timothy Dalton mini-series or the movie versions of Persuasion but they sound pretty good. Hmmm…Maybe I should rent/ watch those instead of getting all OCD around the domicile. Anyhow, thanks for the tip, Caroline! πŸ™‚

    Thank goodness for ihatewheat and this blog — I can’t express how much I’ve come to rely on it as a little pick me up when I’m feeling down.

  20. Winnie Egbert says:

    Amber Tan, get out of my head! I’m feeling it too. One of my mates suggested getting one of those SAD headsets to get a little fake sunshine on these long wintry nights (I’m in London).

    If you do nothing else, watch the Ciaran Hinds / Amanda Root version of Persuasion – my heart was in my throat from beginning to end wanting it to work out for them, and Sophie Thompson (sister of Emma) is a *hilarious* Mary Musgrove.

  21. Amber Tan says:

    I’m so sorry to hear that we’re in the same boat, Winnie, although I’m grateful to be in good company. πŸ™‚

    And I sincerely hope the SAD headset thing-y works for you (never tried it myself). If you decide to try it and it works, please let me know. Frankly, I’m not even sure what prompts my seasonal depression. I currently reside in the Sunshine State where there are no seasons — other than hurricane that is. Well, then again, I’m not a Wakefield and do not wear a perfect size 6. Perhaps those are contributing factors…? πŸ˜‰

    On the positive side, I do have blue eyes and a newly recommended movie to watch thanks to my invisible friends. πŸ™‚

    Which member of the Sweet Valley gang are you —> Elizabeth fucking Ingalls. >_ I knew without answering that I’d be EFI. Me = major nerd.
    Inner Child —> 16 (wonder if it’s a size 6?)

    WTF? I meant to say:

    Which Twin Are You? —> I knew without answering that I’d be EFI. Me = major nerd.
    Inner Child β€”> 16 (wonder if it’s a size 6?)

  24. Anonymous says:

    You scored as Elizabeth
    I am Elizabeth. I am headstrong and intelligent. I love to be myself, and am very loyal to my family. I can sometimes be prideful and “prejudiced,” but I try to remain open minded and I usually regret past mistakes.
    Elizabeth 80%
    Charlotte 65%
    Jane 60%
    Mrs. Bennet 50%
    Mary 45%
    Lydia 45%
    Kitty 45%

    And then I got ELizabeth Wakefield twice. Just because I’m not a slut like Jess. Grrr.

  25. LucyLou says:

    Oops, that was me above.

    We probably all got Liz Wakefield because we read for fun. Not because we’re saintly and condescending.
