Since it's been over a year, I went and tried again, and not a lot seems to have changed.

Gandalf the Grey 80%

Not sure if I'm just getting more curmudgeonly in my old age, what with Pippin falling off and Gollum getting stronger....

My result was Arwen.

I didn't really want to be like a woman.

I'd rather go with Ecthelion of the Fountain.

You Scored as Samwise

You're Samwise Gamgee! Samwise the brave is the most loyal friend that you could ever ask for. He'll be there for you through thick and thin, and be willing to do anything for you. "There is some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."

75% Samwise
63% Gandalf
63% Aragorn
56% Arwen
44% Frodo
31% Pippen
19% Gollum
0% Faramir

Interesting...

Seeing this one pop up and checking back to have done this like two years ago I decided to give it a go again. And lay and behold! It was soo different!

Well I was aware of making it a bit differently as I was marking the edge-grades more than the middle-ones which I always end up marking in this kind of a quizzes. But really, the results made an interesting change from the previous try while I don't think I have changed so much in such a short time.

So I'm... (the previous results in brackets, followed by the difference)

Frodo 77% (63%) = + 14%
Gandalf 70% (63%) = +7%
Saruman 63% (63%) = even!
Arwen 63% (67%) = -4%
Boromir 60% (50%) = +10%
Samwise 53% (47%) = +6%
Gollum 53% (43%) = +10%
Galadriel 47% (30%) = +17%
Aragorn 47% (54%) = -7%
Merry 43% (37%) = +6%
Pippin 40% (70%) = -30%
Legolas 40% (67%) = -27%
Eowyn 33% (47%) = -14%
Gimli 20% (47%) = -27%

So by taking more extreme views on matters makes me a lot more Galadriel and Frodo, and makes me less Pip, Legolas or Gimli?

Whatever, it was a fun ten minutes anyway... Let's see how it will turn out on 2012?

If nothing else, it's an interesting way to make oneself wonder

Here is my new one compared with my previous results, that is, from October 2007 and September 2008:

Galadriel
83% (Still in lead... interestingly in my previous tries went through 83->90 and now back to 83, but always the first place!)
Legolas
80% (Growing steadily. Used to be 63% for 3rd place -> 73% for 2nd place)
Samwise Gamgee
64% (used to be 67% on both tries, originally for 2nd place)
Arwen of Rivendell
63% (used to be 66% and 63%, originally for 3rd place after Sam)
Frodo Baggins
63% (growing slowly, was 53% and 60%)
Aragorn
57% (was 53% and 63%)
Saruman the White
43% (Fascinating, this is a similar trend as with Galadriel. Used to be 43% -> 47%)
Peregrin Took (Pippin)
43% (originally 47%, last time it randomly went to 70% but now it dropped back to "normal")
Gandalf the Grey
37% (whoops, what a drop, used to be 40%, later 53%)
Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry)
34% (used to be steadily 37%)
Gollum
30% (I am scared by the way how it grows, used to be 17%, 20%)
Gimli
27% (used to be 17%)
Boromir
27% (again a bit of a rollercoaster, went 30% -> 47%)
Eowyn of Rohan
17% (similar, 10% -> 23%)

Disappointment: Gandalf, Gollum. Quite happy with the, albeit slow, growth of Frodo; really interested about the reasons for the growth of Legolas. Interested about the "rollercoasters" (especially Pippin, Boromir).

Merry.

Well yes, I can certainly live with that (must have been the "Nothing beats a good history book"). Pippin comes second, and the rest of the Fellowship hobbits in the upper half as well, along with Legolas (what's that militant non-smoker doing there?), Gandalf (more like it, if a bit too flattering) and Arwen (where did that come from?). I'm certainly not much of a Boromir or Aragorn, and I do have a wee bit of Gollum in me (at least my wife says so). So yeah, fits.

I've just done the quiz, and I'm...

Galadriel! Honestly!

My personality changes with the day (as many people learned the had way ), and I can see myself as all these characters, except for Gandalf and Galadriel, the top 2.

Tied between Galadriel and Legolas. I can see where that comes from (as well as the Gandlaf and Frodo) and am in agreement...unless we're talking about the movie-Legolas, in which case I'm utterly confused and perhaps slightly offended. Does anyone know whether this is a book or movie quiz? Or both? I'm not sure.

Not bad to be similar to Legolas, but I am not too excited to be 67% with Gollum.

Gollum is not that bad of a character, if you look at him closely, though very few people see it. Frodo saw it. Gandalf saw it. And I think that's pretty much it. You just need to zoom in on the "Smeagol" part.
