Which "The West Wing" Character Are You?
You're a serious intellectual who doesn't have time to waste on diplomacy. You speak your mind, sometimes loudly, which generally works out for you since you're almost always right. You're detail-oriented and whatever your particular professional niche is, you're the master of it. Behind your gruff exterior, you're a loyal colleague and friend who will always defend your nearest and dearest.
You're the epitome of a quick-witted charmer. You're off-kilter humor sometimes makes people forget that you're sharp as a tack, intellectually and emotionally perceptive, and tenacious. Yes, you're usually the first to crack a joke, but you're also the first to crack a story. You're very good at getting what you want in life through honesty and personal networking, and you don't back down from a challenge.
You're an idealistic wordsmith. You believe in holding yourself to the same high standards to which you hold others and refuse to negotiate when it comes to matters of morality. You're loyal and honest to a fault, and you're a true team player — so much so that you tend to put others' needs before your own. Your dedication to your job is unrivaled, and you're always ready and willing to help a friend in need.
You're an empathetic caregiver with a spine of steel. You have a warm and nurturing nature, but you're also as intelligent as you are emotionally intuitive. People like to confide in you, and you're an excellent listener, but you tend to give most of your energy to the needs of others. You're hard-working and honest, ambitious in your own way, and intensely loyal to the few people you choose to let into your inner circle.
You're a charismatic, natural-born leader. You believe in serving the greater good at all costs, which is why you often find it difficult to wait for results. You're incredibly intelligent and usually ahead of the pack, and you don't have patience for people who can't quickly catch up. You can be prone to mood swings, but those are usually just a result of you caring too much for a person or cause. You have a heart of gold, an unparalleled wit, a group of close friends, and a large circle of acquaintances (all of whom find you positively magnetic).
You're the quiet, brilliant person hanging out on the fringes of the crowd. You avoid the spotlight at all costs and prefer to stay within your comfort zone, but you're also more than capable of rising to a challenge. You're trusting but not gullible, a realistic optimist, and incredibly brave. Your tenacity is often overshadowed by your quiet dedication, but you know how to seize an opportunity. Your natural intuition serves you well both professionally and personally.
You're the backbone of your group of close friends and colleagues. You're a rare mix of empathetic and stern. You don't have time for disloyalty or selfishness, but you are always willing to listen and give people a second chance (if they deserve it). You inspire absolute loyalty and respect in people, never shirk on your responsibilities, and remain levelheaded and cool in the face of conflict.
You're as charming as you are clever — and you're very clever. You tend to talk a big game, but behind that bravado, you're a humble and idealistic team player. People are drawn to your confidence and eloquence, and you have no problem being in the spotlight. You can easily win people over to your side, which makes you a powerful ally and a dangerous enemy.
You're the definition of approachable coolness. You're a total pro when it comes to your job, and have the rare ability to defuse tense situations with intelligent humor. You're quick-witted, empathetic, and you don't mince words. You can stand your ground without becoming confrontational, and while you rarely create conflict, you don't back down from it. You're very loyal and value honesty above all. And obviously, no one does "The Jackal" like you.
You're a no-nonsense pistol. You have a brilliant mind, a strong and magnetic presence, and zero time for hesitance. You always stick to your guns and you always protect the people close to you. You can be a shock to people who are used to shrinking violets, but people respect your zeal, commitment, and ability to act quickly and decisively. You can also be warm and nurturing when the occasion calls for it, and behind all that passion, you enjoy taking on the role of caretaker.
