My answers to the Proust questionnaire!

Dear readers,

As you may already know, I love questionnaires! I think this a way to learn to better know yourself. Yesterday I did the Pivot questionnaire just for fun and today I wanted to do the Proust questionnaire that seems more spiritual and depth. The French writer Marcel Proust discovered this test at the end of the nineteenth century when he was still a teenager. This English game dating back at least from the 1860’s was named Confessions and allowed people to reveal their tastes and aspirations. Proust did not adopt exactly the original English questionnaire. Beside the translation, he separated questions, omitted some and added others. The Proust questionnaire is composed of 31 questions. Here are my answers, enjoy reading!

1. Your favourite virtue? The need to love and be loved.
