Half of BuzzFeed is dumb quizzes like, "Which Fictional Character Do You Most Resemble?"  And they're never accurate.  But now someone's done one with some actual science behind it.



A website called OpenPsychometrics.org has this quiz that has people rank the personality traits of more than 600 fictional characters from movies and TV shows.  And in less than five minutes, it can tell you which one's personality is closest to yours.



There are 28 questions.  Or you can do a longer version that's a little more accurate.



Each question has a slider where you rank your various traits.  Like how "wise or foolish" you are . . . how "normal or weird" . . . and whether you're mostly "modest or flamboyant."



Once you finish the questions, a picture pops up of your closest match.  And you can also see how close you are to the other 650 characters in the system.



For example, you might be an 87% match with Jim Halpert from "The Office", and only a 30% match with Darth Vader.
