Which Austen heroine would I be?

I found this quiz at Beyond strange new words. I'm curious and I really like Jane Austen, so I had to take the quiz myself.

You can take the quiz HERE.

My result is: Elinor Dashwood.

It says: "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."

My comment: very true. Although, I secretly hoped the result would be Catherine Morland (Northanger Abbey), as I am a bit more like her than Elinor. Still, I like the result. However, I would never allow a man to treat me they way Edward treated Elinor.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

I got her too, and I too thought Catherine would be more me

I am Elizabeth Bennet...never doubted it for a second! That means I am entitled to my Mr. Darcy. I'll take the Matthew Macfadyen Mr. Darcy if you please. That was a fun quiz :)

I got Elinor too-I was trying to get Catherine but I guess I'm too practical :D

Now, of course, I have to actually read :) Persuasion to see who I (Anne Elliot) am :)

That's who I got too--and it totally makes sense for me. :)
