    Ooooo, I'm a sucker for anything that feels like a quiz...

    As expected Buffy/Spike/Cordelia and the traits I knew with Anya. As I have just posted a thread working on the basis of Spike being an introvert needing deep connections with few people (which I am also like) I would contest having him as outgoing is accurate.

    I'm not sure how to reply to some questions... But a lot of these things are too general, and they focus on superficial things like piercings or fashion style or school grades. Judging by this, I should relate to Willow a lot - but I don't. Or, I should be a lot like Giles, but I don't think I am.

    And why "you have a child" for Giles? Because he's a father figure to Buffy? This makes no sense. It's not like everyone who has a child is automatically more like Giles (who doesn't actually have a child anyway).

    Also, Anya is the only one they consider "feminist"? I mean, really? Haven't they confused "feminist" with "misandric"?

    Spoiler:
    Buffy Summers

    [ ] You have a lot of responsibility - I'm not sure what counts as lots of responsibility, but since I'm not really in a position to be responsible for other people and I'm not lucky enough to have a job where I'd influence things, I'll say 'no'

    [ ] You play a lot of sports - define "lots of sports"? I regularly attend a self-defense course, three times a week, but that doesn't exactly qualify as lots of sports, I guess>

    Here's a much better personality quiz: Which Buffyverse character are you?
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    I thought this too. I don't feel I probably like leather as much as Spike but that isn't the sort of thing I would note when considering whether I am like him or not. Pet preferences? Again a little tenuous!! I also don't feel that I am like Willow/Xander just through being a loyal friend, but hey, these sorts of things are just fluff fun really. Can't say I was upset to genuinely only have one match to Angel.

    Xander. Loyal. Friendly. Funny. Competant. Physically Inept. Sensitive. You really do see everything that's going on. You are the heart of your group. You are there whenever anyone comes calling.

    You Scored as Spike
    Spike. Passionate. Fun Loving. Destructive. Hurtful. Addictive. Live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpse... and then keep living. Some people go though their whole lifes without that fire. Never knowning what lights them up. Not you though. You feel your heart race, blood boil, skin like it's on fire, and you feel alive. Often this leads to trouble for you and those around you, but it happens. You are willing to pay the consequences for your actions. But, sometimes you can't fix what you have broken.

    Spike - 83%
    Cordelia - 80%
    Buffy - 70%
    Faith - 68%
    Xander - 60%
    Doyle - 58%
    Anya - 53%
    Harmony - 53%
    Oz - 50%
    Willow - 48%
    Angel - 45%
    Giles - 43%
    Wesley - 35%
    Lorne - 33%

    Thanks for this TTB, good fun. It is unavoidable for me, I am a Spike/Buffy/Cordelia mix whichever way I tilt my head to examine it! And though I had never thought of it before I can see the Faith elements are significant too. Can't say I think their description of Spike is that great though, I wouldn't ever describe him as destructive and hurtful if I was summarising his character. But maybe that means I am just kidding myself??!!!

    Some of the options were hilariously transparent...
    • Money is nice, but not the most important thing.
    • I do my job "wrong" but better than anyone who has come before me
    • You stutter a bit when people rattle you or make you nervous.
    • You have extensive sales skills.
    • The loss of my soul really wouldn't change me much.
    • Magic is very interesting.
    • Computers frighten me


    And then there was the most bizarre one...
    • I have never died

    How do you guys get to see the percentages you scored for all the other characters? I scored "Buffy" but I had to answer a tie-breaker question to determine who I'd be and I'm curious to see what other character I nearly got? The answer page doesn't show my scores for the others?

    I literally copied and pasted the summary paragraph and the list with the percentages. I didn't need to 'do' anything to see them, they were just there at the end. It is frustrating it isn't showing you because that is one of the best bits, the combination (though I'd say any comparisons to a character which produces much under 70-60ish% stops being significantly noteworthy really).

    The 'next' button just worked for me. It is worth double checking you selected something for each answer and possibly try using a different web browser. No other suggestions I'm afraid.

    I used to have similar problems in the past with that quiz (I've done it before), it's about the browser. If you're using Firefox, maybe you need to update your version.

    It does that when your scores for two characters are even. When you get the result, the percentages show underneath.

    It's an old quiz and the share option doesn't work - you can just copy and paste the results.

    Some questions were really silly, like the one about dying and the one about magic, but most of them were good. I've seen some other Buffy personality quizzes where all the questions were like that: "I've died twice", "I enjoy doing magic" and other things that are completely inapplicable to the real world.


    You Scored as Buffy

    You are Buffy. Strong, Determined, Judgemental, Street-Smart, Not Book-Smart. Born to a normal life, destined for more. You took the responsability, and have done it better than anyone. You have a code what is right & wrong, and are not afraid to judge people by that code. Because that is your destiny, and you've sacrificed so much for it.

    Buffy
    70%
    Cordelia
    63%
    Spike
    60%
    Anya
    58%
    Angel
    58%
    Oz
    53%
    Wesley
    50%
    Doyle
    50%
    Faith
    40%
    Willow
    40%
    Lorne
    40%
    Giles
    40%
    Xander
    35%
    Harmony
    33%

    Ha ha, the description doesn't really fit, I'm pretty sure I'm destiny-free...

    Oh yes, soulless I would agree but he isn't that anymore. That would be like including vapid socialite cheerleader in Buffy's personality description. Their past is a part of them and shows an element of personality/temperament intrinsic to them to some degree but still aren't significant and current in a way that I would include them in a couple of sentences summarising the character overall.

    See I find this interesting because out of all the regular contributors to the boards I generally expect to be in agreement with your posts/interpretations. I'd love to see if someone I tend to disagree with came out with results which matched my lower scoring characters. It isn't exactly Myers Briggs but it is interesting.

    Not really, since Buffy was a vapid cheerleader before the show even started, while Spike was soulless for 70% of his storyline on both shows. Willow wasn't a shy insecure nerd for more than 40% of the show, but it's still a big part of her character. Damaged badass guy who shoots people on the spot isn't the only characterization that would be acceptable for Wesley, and few people would think that Connor should only be mentioned as the well-adjusted perfect boy of season 5. If Drusilla were to become sane permanently in her mini, that wouldn't mean that it's wrong to put "insane" in her character description.
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    Exactly, Buffy's is in her past and not a defining character point still, but Willow's is. And yes, for Drusilla, to put like that it would be wrong. You would need to put a qualification in it 'previously insane' or 'only recently sane' or 'insane since sired and for x years thereafter'. It is relevant history but history nonetheless and if you think it is still relevant enough that it would be a key characteristic to recall it needs its placing in the character's chronology with a qualification. I am not denying that it plays a part in his character's past but it isn't a good description of who he is now to include it like this. Really, if you were going to describe Spike in only a couple of sentences would you have included it like that, as a current statement, and would you have just put "Passionate. Fun Loving. Destructive. Hurtful. Addictive." as his key words? This doesn't describe him, to meld any aspects and speak about them all in current tense, just confuses the character and mixes it all up. They might as well have put Victorian in his key words too as that was the entire social base that his personality was grounded in.

    I came up as Doyle but the match was really low, at about 58%. The next was Giles, so I think I can safely say my personality doesn't really match any of characters that closely. Identification can sometimes be more complicated than that I suppose.

    You Scored as Spike

    Spike. Passionate. Fun Loving. Destructive. Hurtful. Addictive. Live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpse... and then keep living. Some people go though thier whole lifes without that fire. Never knowning what lights them up. Not you though. You feel your heart race, blood boil, skin like it's on fire, and you feel alive. Often this leads to trouble for you and those around you, but it happens. You are willing to pay the consequences for your actions. But, sometimes you can't fix what you have broken.

    Kana I don't really know what Doyle is like, are there any real similarities to Giles which might be why they were your top ones?

    Crikey Giles you're high on loads of them. You have an eclectic personality!!

    If you read eclectic as 'lunatic' you may have a point I was quite surprised myself at how many of the questions applied to me to one extent or the other, but I'm still surprised that Spike came out on top.... Must be the darker side of my personality shining through

    Erm, I wouldn't have said so. Giles is too Utilitarian for me and I'm more like Buffy with the whole 'saving friends and family over the world' thing. I'm not really like any of them. I was shocked that I scored higher for Spike than I did for Angel.

    This is a personality quiz though, rather than a character history. It makes sense that they would describe the character traits that were most prominent for the majority of time the character was on the show!

    Although it's not always simple with characters who changed a lot halfway through their lifetime on the shows - the description of Cordelia matches AtS Cordelia (and season 2-3 Cordelia in particular) more than BtVS Cordelia.

    I wasn't surprised at all that I scored high on Buffy (which has so far happened in every Buffy personality quiz I've done) and that Spike was close, but I was shocked that I scored so high on Cordelia, and that Anya is also relatively high since I have very little in common with her. I have to say though that I did it several times because I wasn't sure which score to give some of the questions - and the results can vary, I even got Cordelia as the result once.

    Knew it lol


    You Scored as Buffy
    You are Buffy. Strong, Determined, Judgemental, Street-Smart, Not Book-Smart. Born to a normal life, destined for more. You took the responsability, and have done it better than anyone. You have a code what is right & wrong, and are not afraid to judge people by that code. Because that is your destiny, and you've sacrificed so much for it.
