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

Notability Name
82.0Joyce Byers
81.5Jim Hopper
80.8Dustin Henderson
77.6Robin Buckley
77.1Will Byers

64.2Billy Hargrove
61.7Lucas Sinclair
60.5Jonathan Byers
53.9Erica Sinclair

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 Stranger Things?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 10
2 It's bad 90
3 It's okay 3145
4 It's good 15247
5 It's my favorite 4364

This gives it an average score of 4.04 / 5. Making it 129th 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.
