    Take this (weirdly precise!) quiz to find out which fictional character’s personality matches yours.

    Bored? Working from home? Perhaps you would be interested in knowing which fictional character you most resemble. I know, I know, you’ve heard this before, but let me tell you: this is no slapdash BuzzFeed personality quiz. The Statistical “Which Character” Personality Quiz is part of the Open-Source Psychometrics Project, a website that seeks “to educate the public about various personality tests, their uses and meaning, the various theories of personality and also to collect data for research and develop new measures.”

    To play, you choose where you land on a series of spectrums. The result is a ranked list of the fictional characters whose personalities most align with yours. It is weirdly accurate—and after taking the quiz, you can contribute to the research behind it by ranking the personalities of characters with whom you are familiar.

    Take the quiz here, and perhaps you will find out, like I did, that you are basically a combination of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Joan Holloway, and . . . Petyr Baelish. Yikes.

    Have fun, everyone.
