Are You a Lady’s Maid or a Countess Dowager? Take the Downton Abbey Employment Test

I want the rich guy’s job!

Are you looking for a new line of work? You could do worse than taking a cue from the folks at Downtown Abbey. posted a quiz for you to take to see which Downtown Abbey job is right for you. I answered the 10 questions, and it turns out my mentor is Isobel Crawley, the philanthropic do-gooder. Frankly, I didn’t want to settle for anything less than lord, but I suppose it’s better than being the chamber pot maid, or whatever that particular job is called. Here’s what I was told:

“Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get dirty (this is my kind of job already!), because Isobel’s charitable jobs are right for you (frankly, I’m a big believer in getting paid, and the more the merrier). Your hands-on work for those who need it the most (does this mean I’m a chiropractor?) can get you into trouble (my past haunts me!), especially when you cross the line from leader to bossypants (how did they know the kind of trousers I prefer?) But while your values or methods may not make you popular (Wait, what?!), your heart is in the right place (It’s true. I just got back from the doctor’s). And you back it up with considerable force of will.”

Take the test and find out whether you belong upstairs or downstairs.
