The VV Proust Questionnaire – by Cynthia from Rennes, France

May 23, 2011

The Proust Questionnaire is a questionnaire about one’s personality. At the end of the nineteenth century, when Proust was still in his teens, he answered a questionnaire in an English-language confession album belonging to his friend Antoinette, daughter of future French President Félix Faure, entitled “An Album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc.” At that time, it was popular among English families to answer such a list of questions that revealed the tastes and aspirations of the taker. Proust answered the questionnaire several times in his life, always with enthusiasm.

Visiveis Virtudes updated the Proust Questionnaire and did not get bored by answering them. It is your turn. And if you feel like sharing it and having a look at other people’s answers, visit us at
