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


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

Notability Name
96.2Dr. Hannibal Lecter
86.7Will Graham
79.4Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier
75.9Jack Crawford
73.4Abigail Hobbs
71.1Dr. Alana Bloom
68.4Beverly Katz
51.4Freddie Lounds
36.2Jimmy Price
32.6Brian Zeller

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


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

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 5
2 It's bad 15
3 It's okay 283
4 It's good 1375
5 It's my favorite 972

This gives it an average score of 4.24 / 5. Making it 23rd 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.
