Twin Peaks

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


The dataset has 15 characters from this universe. They are ordered in the list below by their notability (see Note 1).

Notability Name
93.4Dale Cooper
82.0Audrey Horne
76.9Sheriff Truman
75.6Leland Palmer
70.3Shelly Johnson
62.8Benjamin Horne
62.2Norma Jennings
60.6Donna Hayward
57.0Pete Martell
56.9Josie Packard
56.2Ed Hurley
53.1Bobby Briggs
47.2Catherine Martell
45.6James Hurley
45.1Lucy Moran

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 Twin Peaks?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 0
2 It's bad 6
3 It's okay 140
4 It's good 1051
5 It's my favorite 719

This gives it an average score of 4.3 / 5. Making it 13th 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.
