buffy quiz

Wow, this is a really good quality quiz. I liked the questions better than just about any personality quiz I can think of, I had to stop and think about some of them but I didn't think they were ambiguous or forcing you to choose between two bad options like some quizzes. As a bonus, Willow has always been my favorite Buffy character, so I'm very happy to get her. Although I wouldn't have guessed it from the questions until the end.

Willow Rosenberg
45% amorality, 54% passion, 54% spirituality, 9% selflessness

Likely you're stronger on the inside than most people would give you
credit for: like Willow, you're a decent person with both passions and
a spiritual side, sometimes struggling for control.


Willow is one of the most beloved characters in the Buffy universe;



Congratulations!

Interesting that I'm "more selfless than 0% of people" :) That should be on my resume or something.

Totally. :)

I have no idea who this character is, but I think I came out nicer than I am.

Dawn Summers
54% amorality, 63% passion, 54% spirituality, 63% selflessness
Dawn is a person driven by her love for her friends and her desire to make a difference. Perhaps you are, too. You're willing to do whatever is necessary to do what is right for those you care about, and sometimes this can get you in a little bit of trouble.



Most of all, however, you have a heart of gold.



Congratulations!

I don't know how old she is IRL, but she's jailbait in the show... Buffy's little teeny-bop sister (15 or so?) Maybe she gets older in the last two seasons, though, I just got done watching season 5.

Not that anyone cares, but for the record... my hotness ranking of the Buffy characters is:

hot: Willow, then Spike, then Harmony, Buffy, Angel, Oz, and Giles
cute: Xander, Tara, Dawn

neutral: Anya, Drusilla

repulsive: Glorificus, Cordelia, and worst of all... Riley

according to imdb, she's 20. erp.

and of course willow is the hottest. the only other two i can place without looking them up on imdb are buffy and spike.

Yeah, this test reminded me of a good math puzzle. The questions were simple and easy to think about but encouraged some introspection. OkCupid has produced quite a few superpar quizzes — I now route people to its MBTI quiz.

Too bad I don't watch this show.

No fair! I somehow ended up as Angel. Blah. Apparently this test thinks I'm too selfless and not spiritual enough to be Willow.

There's some other test on OKCupid that claimed I was Giles, so that was ok. But I identify more with Willow (except season 6, where the whole drug-addiction metaphor just really seemed poorly written to me).

Apparently this test thinks I'm too selfless and not spiritual enough to be Willow.

Actually, from looking at several friends results, it appears to me that Angel is distinguished from Willow by being less than 50% on passion/repose and less than 50% spiritual. (I'm not sure why they treat passion and repose as synonyms; to me they are quite different. I guess they're trying to say willow spends more time relaxed and enjoying herself whereas angel is more up-tight and mechanical.) I'm not sure where spiritual fits into the questions at all, they must have extracted it from the ones such as "do you like spending time alone?" and "which is more romantic... passionate-lovemaking or intelligent soul-searching conversation?" Angel seems pretty selfless to me, but for some reason on the other person's journal I saw, it had less than 50% on selflessness which I think is the cutoff for switching to one of the other 16 results.

Yeah, you're right, I'm not sure why I thought spiritual made the difference. I seem to have been Angel rather than Willow mostly because of the selfless thing. Which is odd, since I thought I mostly chose pretty selfish answers.

Actually, the quiz does treat Angel as selfish (even though if I were doing it I'd peg him as selfless). You must have misread or misinterpretted what I wrote above--also I mistakenly said that he was treated as non-spiritual, but after checking again I realized that's not true.

Willow: moral, passionate, spiritual, selfish
Angel: moral, dispassionate, spiritual, selfish

So the only difference between Willow and Angel is that he is less passionate. But by passionate in this test they mean "enjoys freetime and the simple things in life"... Angel is too serious and focused on his own goals for that (even though one could easily make the case that passionate can mean the oppositte of what they're using it for here.)

I see... it's strange, because the selfish category seems to be the one where my number disagrees most with yours, but I think it still came out as just barely below 50%, so you're saying that's the dividing line? On the other hand on the passion number my result wasn't so different but it was just on the other side of 50%. Makes sense, I guess, but when results seem to cluster so close to the 50% boundary it probably makes the answer a bit too random....

Agreed. That's why they give you two different results--the non-curved and the curved results (relative to others who've taken it). For the ideal test, these numbers would match exactly, but for most tests I've seen they're pretty different.

One negative consequence of having the cutoffs all at 50% is that there is a critical point at 50-50-50-50, at which you're right on the cusp of all 16 possible results. But the alternative is to test variables for which you expect to have a larger portion of the population on one side or the other... which makes it seem kind of "biased" in a way, although the tests usually end up this way empirically anyway.

oops, come to think of it I guess moving the cutoffs away from 50% would not fix the problem of having a single critical-point bordering all 16 categories. I guess in order to do that, you'd need to have the cutoff for at least one of them depend on the value of the others. Interesting problem, actually... I wonder if there is an elegant way of minimizing how many regions border each intersection point.

bwahahaha! ;)

Actually, the more I look at it the less I understand about where the results come from. I think I'm going to revise my statement about it to say: really good quality questions; really bizarre connection to results. It's possible I got willow by sheer chance.

haha, Xander with a 4% morality

..that's cool, but ... could've been a bit sexier there

how bout Spike?
spoonless
Mar. 4th, 2006 05:57 am (UTC)
actually, I think the 4% means you are mostly moral rather than amoral. There is a typo on the quiz at the bottom where it labels the scale for amorality at the end as "morality" even though it's measuring amorality (which it states correctly at the top). Whoever made the test should fix that.

how bout Spike?

Yesss, how bout!
