Take Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire


Marcel Proust liked to question himself, his friends, and perfect strangers about life and death and everything in between. Since 1993 Vanity Fair has asked celebrities (both literary and otherwise) to take a Proust-like questionnaire. Now they’re releasing a book entitled Vanity Fair’s Proust’s Questionnaire , compiling 101 celebrity responses from the likes of Salman Rushdie, Aretha Franklin, Martin Scorsese, and Norman Mailer.

To help promote the project they’re offering an interesting look into how YOU think and how it compares to the celebrities who they’ve interviewed. Answer questions like: “Who are your heroes in real life?” and “If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?” After twenty responses, they’ll tell you which icon you match up with the best.

We most closely resembled Giorgio Armani and Ray Charles. Take the test here, and let us know who you get.
