Jane Austen was an English novelist known for her books which provided commentary and critiques on the British landed gentry at the end of the 18thcentury. She is most renowned for her publications of ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Mansfield Park’, ‘Emma’, ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Persuasion’, all of which boast a number of brilliant and intriguing characters. But which of these characters best fits your personality? Let’s find out.

You May Get

Elinor Dashwood

You are Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. You are typically reserved, level-headed, wise and responsible beyond your years, you tend to keep it together under distress, and you prefer to keep your feelings and emotions to yourself. You always put others’ needs before your own, even if it hurts you to do so. You may try to appear composed and happy on the outside when you are actually hurt and conflicted on the inside. However, you can expect to be rewarded for your selflessness and self-control – you will secure the quiet, shy, eloquent, and respectful person you have been pining for. 

Elizabeth Bennet

You are Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Neither wealth nor status could convince you to marry someone you dislike: only love can ensure your happiness. You never shy away from speaking your mind, even to those who outrank you. You greatly enjoy mingling with amiable society. Although you feel deeply and passionately, your sharp mind and sharper tongue gain you the admiration of many. You defy the limitations of your society, scorning rules that you find old-fashioned.

Penelope Clay

You are Penelope Clay from Persuasion. You are driven in a practical sense and know what is best for yourself. You think outside of the box and plan every aspect of achieving your goals. You tend to keep your feelings and plans to yourself, observing and building up those around you (although you make sure something is in it for you).You are also able to think on your feet, which will be beneficial in getting that special someone you've had your eye on for weeks.

Catherine Morland

You are Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey. Going out is always an entertaining experience for you, and you love meeting new people. You think from the heart and always see the good in others before the bad. Be on your toes for people wanting to use your kind heart to elevate themselves. You have an interest in scary stories, but beware that you don’t let your imagination get in the way of reality! Love and marriage are very important to you, and you tend to stay inside your comfort zone when seeking a partner.

Maria Bertram

You are Maria Bertram from Mansfield Park. You usually know how to make a situation work to your benefit. You love attention and freely express your strong feelings and opinions. Once you know what you want, you don't let anything get in your way, even the opinions of those closest to you. You might want to start thinking before you act though, before you get yourself into more than you can handle. 

Lucy Steele, Isabella Thorpe, Caroline Bingley

You are the characters Lucy Steele from Sense and Sensibility, Isabella Thorpe from Northanger Abbey, and Caroline Bingley from Pride and Prejudice. You are very determined to achieve your goal (whether it is a lover, wealth, or both) by any means necessary. These goals sometimes encourage you to befriend someone you wouldn’t normally associate with because that person will help you get closer to what you want. You are not afraid to break a few societal rules if it means a better future for yourself. These characters tend to fly from love interest to love interest, so try not to break too many hearts (especially your own) in the process of achieving your ultimate goal.

Fanny Price

You are Fanny Price from Mansfield Park. You are a romantic, but are not very open about your feelings. You are shy and would rather just observe other people. You are a kind-hearted person, and it is sometimes very easy for people to walk all over you. You have strong morals and are unbending to peer-pressure, no matter the costs. When you love someone, you will refuse any other offer despite how exceptional it is. 

Mary Bennet

You are Mary Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. You'd love nothing more than to stick your nose in a book all day and never come out. You crave attention from others, but you often feel ignored which sometimes leads you to do silly things for attention. Because you read so much, you know a lot but you have trouble reading in between the lines and seeing the broader message. Try sticking up for yourself more instead of lurking in the shadows. You might not be in the spotlight, but you certainly aren't the dimmest light in the room.

Mary Musgrove

You are Mary Musgrove from Persuasion. You enjoy talking and have no problems speaking your mind. You prefer to stay in your comfort zone and do not like changes. You have a very strong sense of your own self-worth. You value comfort and stability in both your personal relationships and in your life situation.

Mary Crawford

You are Mary Crawford from Mansfield Park. You are attracted to people who play hard to get, and you enjoy a fun cat-and-mouse romance. You are the life of the party, and you never have a difficult time making friends. You tend to be very opinionated and are often blunt, which sometimes gets you into trouble. You have very particular standards for a partner and won’t settle for anything less.

Anne Elliot

You are Anne Elliot from Persuasion. You may be seen as quiet or reserved, but you still have very strong feelings. You are either persuaded or steadfast to your own opinion based on what you think is best. You have a strong heart and are extremely romantic, and you don't easily forget someone you love. You also aren't afraid to go against what society deems appropriate and will take a risk on something great if it means you'll be happy.

Emma Woodhouse

You are Emma Woodhouse from Emma. You love being the center of attention and often are very popular.  However, your exuberant personality might attract unwanted suitors.  You are likely to be a matchmaker among your friends, but be careful!  You aren’t as tactful as you think you are and border on being slightly manipulative because you want what is best for others. Your practical mind and quick wit can help you work your way out of many potentially bad situations and allow you to be calm while others might panic. Because you are traditional, you might be more likely to stick to what is normal and comfortable to you.  All in all, you like to use your skills for others’ benefit and you are a loyal and understanding friend.

Charlotte Lucas

You are Charlotte Lucas from Pride and Prejudice. You are clear-eyed and very down-to-earth and can see when someone is blowing their chances at a good opportunity. You aren’t likely to point this out to them, however, because you usually keep your opinions to yourself. You are skeptical of people who think they can achieve true happiness and are more interested in satisfying solid life needs. You are fairly conservative and accept traditional categories.

Marianne Dashwood

You are Marianne Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. You are outgoing and have very Romantic ideals. You are not afraid to talk to your love interest. However, you often act rashly. Be careful of people taking advantage of you. You love to have fun and love being social. You have such strong emotions that it is often hard for others to keep up with you which may make you feel isolated sometimes. However, when you do find someone who understands you, you give them your whole heart. Sometimes your ideals manifest themselves in unexpected ways.

Eleanor Tilney

You are Eleanor Tilney from Northanger Abbey. It may seem like you are quiet and shy at first, but you really open up when you get to know someone. When you make friends, you make a deep connection with them. Your difficult past makes you stronger and very realistic. You are willing to wait a long time for something or someone you want, even when others disapprove of your choice.

Mrs. Weston

You are Mrs. Weston from Emma. You are kind-hearted and generous. Many of your friends and family members look up to you and trust your sound advice. You are the mother hen of the group, caring more about making others comfortable, than about yourself. Be careful not to let your affection for someone cloud your vision.
