Which Austen heroine are you?

A friend told me I needed to update my blog, but since this one revolves around England and my travel there last year, it’s one that sometimes has to languish for lack of good things to post! But I have a fun one today. I get the Jane Austen Centre e-newsletter, and today they had a link to a little “test” to determine which Austen heroine you most resemble. Here’s my result:

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

Hooray! I have to admit I was rather happy not to turn out to be Mary Bennet or even Emma Woodhouse. LOL! I’ve always related to Lizzie because of her tendency to prejudge people and then smart for it later. Reminds me of my teenage self to a “T.” My parents had long years of hard work to help me learn to take every report with a grain of salt and not believe the worst. But that often led to my swinging to the opposite end of the pendulum and believing the best about people who later turned out to be undeserving (like Mr. Wickham). Learning to assess people maturely and take a long view is, I believe, a lifelong skill to learn. Like Lizzie, I am still at it! 😉

Cheerio,
Jennie

    Ahh, no surprises for me with this one. 😀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.
