As I have nothing to do at the moment, I took it despite being male. :p I'm Elizabeth Bennet.

I'm Anne Elliott from Persuasion. However, since I've not read the book nor seen any of the film adaptations of the novel, I have no clue who Anne is and whether I got an accurate Austen character assessment. ;)

I'm Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey. At first I thought ugh, then read the answer and it's actually quite accurate - I do like Gothic novels, and love places like Bath! :)

I'm Elinor Dashwood, which I suspected I would be, but I could as easily have been Anne Elliot, or Elizabeth Bennet. I felt I could have chosen a few of the answers. Anyway, they're all great heroines, I love them all, I'm happy to be any of them :) .

If you know the books and characters then I think you can see that some of the questions are rather loaded towards certain characters, but I tried to answer honestly!
