The Da Vinci Code

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


The dataset has 3 characters from this universe. They are ordered in the list below by their notability (see Note 1).

Notability Name
81.0Sophie Neveu
79.3Robert Langdon
67.3Leigh Teabing

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 (for users between 13 and 60 years of age).


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

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 12
2 It's bad 24
3 It's okay 388
4 It's good 764
5 It's my favorite 115

This gives it an average score of 3.73 / 5. Making it 279th 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 important ways. And there are some very obvious things you can point to: users of this quiz are more likely to be young and more likely to be women.

There are several different ways that average ratings can be broken down. Here are average scores by gender:

Gender Average rating
Male 3.63
Female 3.75

The responses to the personality quiz can also be cross referenced with the universe ratings to see how personality affects it. The table below show the correlation between a user's response to a specific self report item and their rating of this universe.

How these items predict the ratings for this universe can be compared to how the same items predict the ratings of other universes. The universes with the most similar patterns on the predictors are:


  1. Notability is computed as the average of 204: important (not irrelevant) and 401: main character (not side character).
