Which Betsy-Tacy Character Are You?

Now here's a quiz I couldn't resist:

Which Betsy-Tacy character are you?
Your Result: Betsy Ray
 

As a child, Betsy is lively and imaginative, a story-teller and a ring-leader. As she grows up, Betsy is popular with both boys and girls because of her fun spirit and love of a good time. She loves traditions, having fun, parties, and boys, but she sometimes undervalues herself and her talents. In the end she learns to love her true self and comes to realize and value her love of writing, and makes her dream a reality. Although she has had many beaus, she ends up with the one best suited to her (Joe Willard!), who understands her love of writing and encourages her to be her real self.

Being shy and red-haired, Tacy Kelly might seem the more obvious result, but my writing focus combined with a penchant for wandering around Europe must have tipped the scale toward Betsy Ray. However, if the quiz allowed for cross-gender character identification, the outcome would likely have been different. After years of pondering whether I'm more like Betsy or Tacy, it occurred to me recently that I actually identify most strongly with Joe Willard. What do you think, Betsy-Tacy fans? Quiz or no quiz, which character from the tomes do you identify with most strongly and why?

Betsy! Of course. I so loved these books when I was growing up. I've just now realized that I haven't read them to my children and really should, while they're still wanting to be read to at night.

I was Betsy too--but maybe it's inevitable if you are a writer--do you think?
