Society demands we ask: Are you Male or Female?

When at a soiree or ball, you:

You would feel most comfortable in what attire?

Which of these careers could you see yourself possibly pursuing?

Rate your self confidence:

Are you alright with taking orders from others?

Have you been known to 'get your hands dirty'?

You find it much harder to relate to:

To you, responsibility is:

When presented with the prospect of change, you are most likely to:

Which Downton Abbey character do you most admire?

Lord or Lady

Lord or Lady

Reputation? Yes. Money? Yes. Fancy clothes and parties? Definitely. Although you live seemingly carefree Upstairs at Downton, Lords and Ladies are not without responsibility. Who else would know how to manage your vast amounts of wealth? The Crawleys set the example for the Abbey and also the town in which they reside. You are solely responsible for making sure the estate endures through the decades. Good luck!

Esteemed Guest

Esteemed Guest

No one knows how to be fashionably late to a Downton party except you! You do well enough for yourself in society to rub some elbows with the Crawleys, but also enjoy traveling and adventure more than living at one of your estates year-round. A cultural enthusiast, you have a vast collection of stories to tell at parties and you might particularly enjoy collecting more juicy stories from Lady Grantham next time you visit!

Valet

Valet

You, sir, are a man's man. NO, literally. Like a maid for the man of the house! You have that personal style and drive that makes other men take you seriously. Valets help the Lord dress, they shine their shoes, they travel with them to keep everything running smoothly, they pack for them, and they can even provide one of their famed close shaves if asked. You are a loyal friend to the Lord, held to much higher standards than just any servant in the household. Keeping secrets is only part of your job!

Footman

Footman

You can't imagine living like those do-gooders upstairs, but you aren't going to slop pigs, either. You have a good head on your shoulders and know that life is about more than parties and rubbing elbows with rich, boring people. A good footman is trustworthy and has a sense of honor and duty, but who says you're a GOOD footman, eh? Yes, you serve the lords and ladies hand and foot, but yes, you also get paid a fair enough wage to go spend at the pub! Cheers!

Lady's Maid

Lady's Maid

In another life, you may have been a Marilyn or Jackie, but that seems a little too fussy. People may call you old fashioned, but you're really just a timeless individual; a woman who doesn't mind getting her hands covered in shoe polish or hairspray, and who understands the value of keeping a Lady's secrets. People look to you for guidance, but also know you have a shoulder they can cry upon. But remember- mum's the word!

Cook

Cook

Let's face it, life is all about food. The deliciousness of a meal can make or break a Downton evening, or even tea time for that matter. No one wants a crumbly scone dirtying their gown in the middle of the day! That's where you come in. You've lived a little and have plenty of stories to tell, but what better way than food to communicate them? It's not like you're going to have a conversation with Lady Grantham upstairs, but you can tell her all about your precious memories of your mother's passion for homemade jam when she bites into her next slathered crumpet!

Butler

Butler

You are the pillar around which the entire manor is supported. Times change, people come and go, but you are timeless and a steadfast leader through and through. You have an unwavering affinity to tradition and maintain order through the stringent application of official protocol. However, you are not bound by these rules, and if doing right means bending protocol, you will do what is necessary in the name of loyalty and love.
