Proust Survey

In the late 19th century , French writer Marcel Proust found a questionnaire called "An album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc". He answered the questions in the survey so many times in his life that it became known as the Proust Survey and a way to uncover true characteristics and emotions.

I thought I would fill it out just for fun and if anyone else wants to play along and fill it out too let me know so I can come and read your answers! It's quite long so I've shortened it a bit. Here we go...
