Their result for The Which Karamazov Brother Are You Test ...

Ivan Fyodorovich Karamazov

Vanya, Vanechka, etc.

"Let it be known to you that I will always protect him. But as for my wishes in the matter, there I reserve complete freedom for myself. Don't condemn me, and don't look on me as a villain."

Ivan (Vanya, Vanechka, etc.) is the intellectual. The second legitimate son of Fyodor Pavlovich Karamozov and the first by his second wife, Ivan is a deep thinker--too deep, perhaps. His religious views are controversial--he professes atheism, but has trouble justifying his own morality without a basis on religion. Nevertheless, he is a good man, though he blames himself for his father's murder as he spoke his own views too freely in front of those who could not handle their implications safely. He made a name for himself anonymously, essentially doing freelance journalism, while paying his own way through the university. He slowly drives himself to insanity through self-inflicted feelings of guilt, however, finally breaking down completely at Dmitriy's trial. Luckily for him, Katerina has no problem with him staying at her house--though whether to recover or to die, the book never says.

You are likely to be:

-Moral and philosophical, but not necessarily religious

-Intelligent and rational

-Hardworking, loyal to those you care about

-Hide your emotions, but that doesn't mean they're absent
