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


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

Notability Name
88.6Carmela Soprano
84.7Tony Soprano
78.4Dr. Jennifer Melfi
67.9Junior Soprano
65.5Silvio Dante
62.1Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri
54.6Christopher Moltisanti
54.2Meadow Soprano
41.2A.J. Soprano
35.1Janice Soprano

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 The Sopranos?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 1
2 It's bad 3
3 It's okay 158
4 It's good 1212
5 It's my favorite 622

This gives it an average score of 4.23 / 5. Making it 29th 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.
