The dataset of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz includes characters from the fictional universe of Dexter.


The dataset has 10 characters from this universe. They are ordered in the list below by their notability (see Note 1).

Notability Name
90.4Dexter Morgan
79.5Debra Morgan
78.8Harry Morgan
67.7Angel Batista
65.3Rita Bennett
61.0James Doakes
60.3Maria LaGuerta
53.7Joey Quinn
52.6Thomas Matthews
47.2Vince Masuka

To see how each character was rated by users, view their individual page.


The graph below shows what percent of people selected this universe as something they knew well enough to rate characters from by the age of the user.


As part of the survey where they rated characters, users were also asked the question "How do you rate Dexter?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 4
2 It's bad 7
3 It's okay 313
4 It's good 1354
5 It's my favorite 364

This gives it an average score of 4.01 / 5. Making it 158th out of the 342 universes in the dataset ordered by rating.

The average rating may be hard to generalize though, the users of one online personality quiz could not be representative of the population in general in important ways. And there are some very obvious things you can point to: users of the quiz are biased towards being women and being younger. To kind of explore this idea, we can correlate user ratings with responses to the self-report personality quiz to see what type of people give this universe higher ratings. The table below show the correlation between a users response to a specific self report item and their rating of this universe.
