I got a nice mix of River and Mal when going through this, but I think that you're more of a River, because you don't get too caught up in the crazes of society though you know what to do if there's any way for you to. That sentence makes no sense whatsoever. It's not just because you cosplay River, I swear! I really do read her in you.

You remind me a lot of Simon. I also saw River, Zoe, Mal, and even a little Inara, but a lot of your answers reminded me most of Simon. You're a realist, and while you don't consider yourself well-versed in the fine arts, music, and literature, you still enjoy them.

You're open about yourself and your past, which sounds like Simon to me. You rely on your wits, and you can be calm in medical emergencies. You're also comfortable taking care of other people. While I definitely could see River, Mal and Zoe, overall you remind me most of Simon.
