So, am I Shakespeare or am I Toni Morrison?

If we can’t trust online polls and quizzes, what can we trust?

I'm Toni MorrisonAn earlier analysis of the Fire Answers Fire manuscript reported here informed me that I was William Shakespeare (as did a game of chance from the Los Angeles Times).

Now a quiz from an Oxford Dictionaries blog is telling me that I’m a Toni Morrison: “You chose informal or slang words that indicate a preference for writing in the vernacular. Other novelists known for their informal prose are Mark Twain, Zora Neale Hurston, Harper Lee, and J.D. Salinger. If novel writing isn’t your cup of tea, dabble in some blogging or draft a dialogue-heavy script for film or television.
