Gender stereotypes

I have actually been knitting and accomplishing a lot. But it is a matter
of getting the photos off the camera so I can talk about them. Soon, I
promise. I ordered my wireless router which will mean a lot more posting.
Right now I'm just not posting a lot (or emailing friends and family)
because I can't face all day at a desk only to come home and sit at a desk
some more.


In the meantime, this quiz entertained me. I'm not surprised by the
results. I could relate to Elinor Dashwood when I read the book (and let be
noted that she married late in life). I have a hard time with even a minimal
Charlotte Lucas score (I never understood HER motivation!) and am devastated
I tested so low for Lady Catherine. She is a fun character!




Elinor Dashwood


You scored as Elinor Dashwood.
As Marianne's older sister, Elinor lives at the other end of the emotional spectrum. She rarely reveals her intense feelings and is more concerned with being honest and loyal than having what she deserves. Even though her intentions are pure, she sets herself up for loss by constantly placing other people before her own needs. Overall, Elinor is gentle and rational but is just as capable of radical emotions (despite her withholding them) as her sister.

Which Jane Austen Character are You? (For Females) Long Quiz!!!
created with QuizFarm.com


When did I get so girly? Knitting and Jane Austen. The high school me
would be horrified. Actually, I couldn't read Jane Austen when I was in high
school. I couldn't make it past the original descriptions of the Bennet
family. They just drove me bonkers. I seem to be much more tolerant of
annoying people now which gives me a chance to appreciate the humor embedded
in Austen's work.
