I took the Statistical “Which Character” Personality Quiz from the Open-Source Psychometrics Project, which they describe as a “slightly more scientific but still silly” version of those Buzzfeed “Which Character Are You?” tests I mostly avoid.
Here are my top five results, with the percentage of overlap in perceived personality traits:
- Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars (87%)
- Daniel Jackson, Stargate SG-1 (86%)
- Lester Freamon, The Wire (85%)
- Bruce Banner, Marvel Cinematic Universe (84%)
- Derrial Book, Firefly and Serenity (84%)
And I don’t even like Star Wars. Haven’t seen Serenity/Firefly or Stargate SG-1, but I’ll take Lester Freamon and Bruce Banner any day. (Maybe not The Hulk though.)
I looked up some Obi-Wan quotes to get a better sense of him (here’s his personality profile from the test) and yeah, this is about right for me:
You’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
The truth is often what we make of it. You heard what you wanted to hear, believed what you wanted to believe.
Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin, they betray you.
Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
If you define yourself by the power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess…then you have nothing.
(Gotta say I’m very proud of this post’s title.)
