Quiz: Which Girls character are you?


If, like me, you’ve been watch HBO’s Girls on Sky Atlantic, and you just so happen to be a twenty-something, then there is a high chance that you will be able to relate at least one, if not all, of the characters in some way shape or form.

Girls is unlike any other programme I have ever watched. I was slightly too young to for Sex and the City and, like every other person that grew up in the 1990s, watched Friends religiously. However I couldn’t identify with any of the characters. So I took to Facebook and Twitter to ask my friends and followers which character from Girls they felt most affiliated with. So, read on to find out if you’re a Hannah (Lena Dunham), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Marnie (Allison Williams) or Jessa (Jemima Kirke).

1. You have just finished University, what are you most likely to be doing with your life now?
A. Trying to work your way up in your job
B. Accidently quitting your unpaid internship, because your parents have
cut you off
C. You’re STILL at university.
D. You’re travelling and “finding” yourself in Thailand.

2. At a party, you’re most likely to be:
A. Talking to one of your many, many friends.
B. Hiding behind a pillar, spying on someone. Probably a boy you like.

D. Insulting someone you don’t like very much.

3. Your heroes are:
A. Michelle Obama, Jackie O.
B. Emily Dickenson, Sylvia Plath.
C. Any Sex and the City character.
D. Courtney Love.

4. Your dream job would be:
A. I want to own a gallery.
B. I want to write, I am the voice of my generation or at least A
C. I’ve not figured it out yet.
D. I travel and occasionally babysit, but nothing really suits my bohemian
lifestyle, y’know?

5. Your biggest achievement would be:
A. Curating a gallery opening by yourself.
B. Being published and having someone ready your screenplay.
C. Getting your hair exactly like Carrie Bradshaw’s.
D. Waking up on a morning… at you own house.

And here are the results…

Mostly As


Well done! You are mainly a Marnie. You are extremely focused on what you want in life. You care about your friends and idolise women of power.

Mostly Bs


Woo-Hoo! You are mainly a Hannah. You may not always be the most confident person in the room, and you idolise women who write poetry. You’re also as deep as the ocean.

Mostly Cs


Whoop! You are mainly a Shoshanna. You spend most of your time studying and watching SATC. You also swear by the power of positive thinking, and with this PMA attitude you’ll make it.

Mostly Ds


Oh Yeah! You are mainly a Jessa. You walk to the beat of your own drum and haven’t figured out what your life plan is yet, but at 24, who has?!

You got a mix

Well done, you are a mixture of all four characters in Girls. This means that you are probably like the majority of the girls/women who have taken this quiz.
