Which Jane Austen heroine am I?

Elinor Dashwood

62% romance, 36% sauciness, 51% etiquette, 67% intelligence

You're always aware of social obligations and have more than your fair share of sense. You would never say something out of anger or in poor taste. This may lead some (like, perhaps, your saucy little sister) to accuse you of being cold. Nothing could be further from the truth! It's just that you don't believe in making a scene. Respectable gentlemen everywhere swoon for you (though you'd never admit it). But you only have eyes for one. He is lucky to have you. Ideal matches: Edward Ferrars, Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth Guaranteed heartbreak: John Willoughby, John Thorpe Not worthy of your affections: Frank Churchill, Captain Benwick
