Proust for physicians
The Proust Questionnaire has its origins in a parlor game popularized by Marcel Proust, the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature. Here is a version of the questionnaire modified for physicians. Feel free to skip questions, but please answer at least 15. This survey should be completed only by British Columbian physicians.
