Within hours of publishing “Which Biblical Heroine Are You?”, we heard from the quiz author, Ellie Hall, via Twitter.
She was thrilled with the post and enjoyed reading your responses! Here is a “Storified” version of the conversation.
Some of you were curious about the process behind these quizzes.
Ellie sent us a link to an interview in which talks about her approach. Here is a brief excerpt:
It’s always tricky! I tend to spend at least 2 or 3 days thinking about the possible results and coming up with the questions and answers.
I reread Bible and Torah passages that mention the men and women in question and try to get a sense about their personalities and how they’ve been portrayed throughout history.
It sounds silly considering that I’m making a quiz, but I try to be as accurate as possible. For example, in the “Which Biblical Heroine Are You?” quiz, I made sure that the “Pick a Flower” question included all the flowers that have been traditionally associated with each woman. So Esther’s flower was a myrtle, a nod to her birth name, Hadassah.
Overall, I just try to be thoughtful and make a smart quiz that I would want to take.”
We appreciate the way Ellie brings “a dash of religion into the world of viral web content”.
Any ideas for what her next quiz might be?
