1. Betty Draper
What you think of yourself: Pretty, polite, and modest
What people really think of you: Impeccable, self-absorbed, and childish
In your defense: Haters gonna hate, but if you’re a Betty fan, there’s more to you than meets the eye. Because underneath her pretty exterior, Betty’s a total badass. She speaks her mind (even if what she says is awful), successfully escaped her cheating ex for a wealthier model, and wears red lipstick flawlessly. You, my friend, are fierce.
2. Don Draper
What you think of yourself: Magnetic, strong, and selfless
What people really think of you: Enigmatic, brooding, and selfish
In your defense: You aren’t afraid of a little mystery. OK, a lot of mystery. In fact, you only have a few close friends, and even they’re not getting every personal detail out of you. Because you prioritize work over family, you’re incredibly successful. And even though you put up a tough front, the truth is that you just want someone to come home to. And a mistress you can keep on the side. And the occasional fling with a client.
You don’t ask for much, really…
3. Megan Draper
What you think of yourself: Mesmerizing and ambitious
What people really think of you: Oversexed, cheeky, and entitled
In your defense: Were you a theater geek too?! Even if you weren’t, chances are that you’re extremely confident and not afraid of being the center of attention. You also probably love French music, manipulating people with your sexuality, and mastered the art of bitchface.
4. Pete Campbell
What you think of yourself: Misunderstood, extraordinary, and powerful
What people really think of you: Egotistical, curmudgeonly, and sneaky
In your defense: You know what it’s like to have to climb your way to the top. In fact, no one’s ever helped you, because, let’s face it, you’re not particularly friendly. It’s you against the world! And even though you’ve learned how to play the game, you’re still a total loner trying to find your soulmate.
5. Peggy Olson
What you think of yourself: Fearless, innovative, and caustic
What people really think of you: Favored and snarky
In your defense: You’ve seen enough of the world to know that the only person who’s going to help you succeed is yourself. At the same time, you’re also extremely loyal to those who’ve helped you along the way. Some might say you’re even loyal to a fault. But the truth is, you keep everyone on their toes. You are your own strong person, and no one knows what you’re going to do next.
6. Roger Sterling
What you think of yourself: Courageous, polished, and alluring
What people really think of you: Frivolous, entitled, and brazen
In your defense: Sure, on paper it looks like you have everything you could ever want, but you’ve also got a wandering eye. Hey, who doesn’t want more, right? The world is your potential oyster, and if the opportunity arises you will crack it open. Consequences be darned!
7. Ken Cosgrove
What you think of yourself: Virtuous, likable, and hard working
What people really think of you: Trusting, honorable, and naive
In your defense: Even when everyone else is doing the wrong thing, you’re always going to do the right thing. You’re a goody two-shoes and proud of it. Let your honesty flag fly, boo!
8. Harry Crane
What you think of yourself: Elegant, shrewd, gregarious
What people really think of you: Ineffective, smarmy, and smug
In your defense: People may not always take you seriously, but someday they’re going to see what a valuable asset you are. Someday…
9. Paul Kinsey
What you think of yourself: Handsome, gentle, and insecure
What people really think of you: Adrift, strange, and opportunistic
In your defense: You’re willing to try anything once. Especially if it’s something slightly taboo. Because, really, all you’ve ever wanted was to fit in.
10. Salvatore Romano
What you think of yourself: Artistic, devoted, and stylish
What people really think of you: Distressed, confused, and sweet
In your defense: Let’s be honest: What’s not to love about Sal? He’s creative, a suave Italian, and has wooed many a lady…and man. If you’re a Sal fan, it means that you have an extremely strong work ethic. So strong, in fact, that you’re willing to set aside your own human needs for the greater good of the company. Sigh, good luck with that.
11. Duck Phillips
What you think of yourself: Dynamic, loving, and genuine
What people really think of you: Alcoholic, alcoholic, and alcoholic
In your defense: Duck’s a functioning alcoholic with extremely bad luck. Be honest: this was a pity like, wasn’t it?
12. Trudy Campbell
What you think of yourself: Adoring, romantic, and happy
What people really think of you: Proper, gullible, and demanding
In your defense: Sure, you’re a conventional thinker, but what’s so wrong with that…?
13. Joan Holloway
What you think of yourself: Influential, bewitching, and charismatic
What people really think of you: Sex, sex, and sex
In your defense: On the outside, it may look like you only have one thing to offer, but you’re one of the savviest people in the room. Sure, you take pride in your appearance and occasionally use it to get what you want, but you pick and choose your battles. Which is why you’ve been winning the game for as long as you have. Well played, Joan lover.
14. Bert Cooper
What you think of yourself: Spiritual, polished, and sophisticated
What people really think of you: Odd and wise.
In your defense: Like Bert, you’re cultured, a capitalist, and have your own way of doing things. In your ideal world, shoes are forbidden, epic chin beards are next to godliness, and Atlas Shrugged is the bible.
15. Lane Pryce
What you think of yourself: Reasonable and discreet
What people really think of you: Accommodating, dishonest, and formal
In your defense: If you’re a Lane fan, then you know what it means to feel under appreciated. You work diligently to keep everyone around you happy, and sometimes to your detriment. There’s no harm in asking for help, so try it out sometime!
16. Sally Draper
What you think of yourself: Totally grown-up
What people really think of you: Alienated, surly, and immature
In your defense: You know what the rules are, they just shouldn’t apply to you. In general, you’re not afraid of questioning authority and confidently play the role of rebel. Luckily, people love you in spite of your combattive facade.
