This is an interactive personality quiz that will match you to fictional characters from a large database based on similarity of description.
When the creator of this website would tell people that he published personality tests on the internet, people would usually ask him if he meant that he worked at BuzzFeed on their Which character are you? personality quizzes. And he would have to explain that he did not and had never been very interested in that style of test. These quizzes are very fun, as evidenced by their extreme popularity. But they are not that meaningful, two people who get the same result on a typical example of these tests dont necessarily have much more in common than two randomly paired individuals. So for the longest time this website had not one character match personality quiz, but I guess it was inevitable because here is an attempt at a slightly more scientific, but still silly, Which Character Are You? test.This test was created by getting more than 3 million volunteers to describe characters on a variety of different adjective based scales. This created a database of descriptions for 1,700 characters. A users self ratings are compared against these profiles and the closest match is found. The documentation on how this quiz works and was developed can be foundhere. There is also apeer report version, which addresses the biases of self-report, and aversion for couples.
