Quiz: Which "Sex and the City" Character Are You?

Picture this: it’s a Thursday night. You had a long day at work. As you settle on your couch, face mask on and wine glass in hand, you turn on Sex and the City to unwind from your horrifically busy day. You sit back and watch Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte go about their fabulous, intriguing lives. You see Miranda cynically yell at a group of teenagers “He’s just not that into you!” or you see Carrie go back to Big for the seemingly billionth time, and you think to yourself, 

“Wow. We’re, like, the same person.

But are you really? Take this quiz to find out who your true Sex and the City spirit animal is.

a.) Go to Chelsea to check out a new art gallery you’ve been wanting to see.

b.) Cancel the date and stay inside to catch up on your new, favorite TV show.

c.) Go to dinner and then a movie. Any date is good as long as you’re wearing cute shoes.

d.) Go out to dinner, but you’ll spend the entirety of dinner luring him in to ensure he’ll spend the night. (How many buttons can you undo in public before it becomes too much?)

a.) Somewhere I can find something chic and sophisticated, like Ann Taylor!

b.) Any department store is fine… it doesn’t really matter to me.

Have you tallied up all of your answers? Check your results down below!


If you answered mostly A’s…

You’re Charlotte, through and through. You love tradition, and always to stick to your word. You may come off as being demure, but you’ll fight for what you want (and to hell with anyone who gets in your way.) Your style is classic: you love elegant basics and a good daytime heel. You love love, and you have no doubt that one day you’ll find “the one,” even if it takes a lot of effort. 


If you answered mostly B’s…

You’re Miranda. You don’t want a handout, and you certainly think you know what’s best for you (although it doesn’t kill you to admit you’re wrong every once in a while.) Your style is kind of nonexistent; if it looks good on you and fits the occasion, it’s perfect (until you find that pair of skinny jeans!) You think things through, you’re decisive, and you certainly don’t let anyone break down your walls… but you have a little soft spot for that one special guy. 


If you answered mostly C’s…

You’re Carrie. You’re a hard worker, and you’ll do any research necessary to do the best work possible. You’re kind to everyone and you love having a good time out with your friends, but most of all, you love shopping. Your style is unique. You love to experiment with new styles and you take extra-special care of your enormous shoe collection (and you get really pissed when someone steals them at a party. Seriously, your Manolo Blahniks?) You like to date and meet new people (all in a day’s work), but you have a pretty good feeling you know who your soulmate is.


If you answered mostly D’s…

You are Samantha, 100%. You know what you want and you’re going to get it, even if you have to sit in a restaurant for five hours that only serves raw food. You’re very career-driven, but there’s really only one thing that truly gets you going, and that’s sex. You don’t like relationships and you certainly don’t ever see yourself getting married, but you love to explore your options and play the field as much as humanly possible. Your style is powerful and sophisticated, but you know how to make any outfit sexy. You also probably will find companionship with a dog to be more fulfilling than with a man - men are easily dispensable and there’s almost always something wrong with them.
