Each Type at Hogwarts


January 29, 2016 by philipbullitthughes

Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to attend Hogwarts? Well here’s a snippet into how each personality type might respond to living at the famous school for witches and wizards:


INFP: It’s your first year at Hogwarts. You’re not sure why, but you feel it in your bones: there’s a shadow growing at the school; a Dark Force you just can’t seem to identify. To make matters worse, no one else seems to notice except you. Fortunately, you’re a quick learner—you don’t even have to study most things—and the Defense Against the Dark Arts is your specialty. You’re a Gryffindor; you can handle danger. Especially with your two closest friends at your side.

INFJ: You’re a Ravenclaw in your third year at Hogwarts. You’re a straight-A student and have taken up the mantle as the President of S.P.E.W. (the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) which has begun to take up most of your free time. Not only that, but now you feel distracted. There’s a quiet little First Year running around with his friends, and you can’t shake the feeling they’re in grave danger.

ENFP: It’s your fifth year at Hogwarts, and you know everyone—or at least they know you. You’re the Seeker on the Gryffindor Quidditch Team, an active member in S.P.E.W., the Vice President of Dumbledore’s Army, and, to top it off, you volunteer to help the groundskeeper care for the hippogriffs after class. Sure, you take pride in how active you are, even though you feel pretty frazzled at times. But you told yourself that no matter how famous you get that you’ll always remember the little guy.

ENFJ: You sport your shiny Prefects badge on the gold lapel of your Gryffindor robes. It’s your sixth year, and you’re ready to help any nervous first-years feel welcome. Transfiguration is where your talents lie, and you can always bring a smile to a youngster’s face when you transform a book or spoon into a fuzzy kitten or a fluttering Flitterby. And you won’t hesitate to transform that Slytherin’s knapsack into a Monster Book of Monsters if he doesn’t stop picking on that poor second-year!

ESFP: After only two years at Hogwarts, you’ve realized that you’re hilarious. Everyone seems to like you no matter what you do or say. Everyone that is, except your professors. You’ve just made your cauldron explode in a flash of pink smoke, turning the old Potion’s Master’s hair into cotton candy. As the laughter grows in decibels, you see your grade falling in turn. If it wasn’t for the fact that the Gryffindor Quidditch Team needed you as their Keeper, you’d consider ditching class altogether and joining the circus or something.


ESTP: You’re the best Seeker the Slytherin Quidditch Team has ever seen. You’ve only been at Hogwarts three years and you already know you’ll be going pro—probably flying for the Bellycastle Batts when you graduate. If only you could get all this tedious stuff about potions and bander-whatevers, school might actually be fun.

ISFP: It’s only been a few months, but you already know Care of Magical Creatures is your favorite class. Racing around on brooms is fun and all—and you know the Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain says you show promise—but there’s something about calming a Hippogriff and feeding a Hungarian Horntail that is immensely satisfying to you.

ISTP: You’ve been at Hogwarts five years and you know you don’t care too much for class—your talents lie in sports! You’ve saved up every penny you have for a Shockbolt 900, the newest and fastest broom on the market. But it could be better. After a few spellish modifications, you’ll be the best Beater on the Slytherin Quidditch Team.

ESFJ: You’re the Hufflepuff Prefect, which suits you fine because you already feel like a parent to your peers. You know you’ve made your mom and dad proud. Soon you’ll be taking an internship at the Ministry of Magic. After a few years, you’re sure you’ll become the Head of Mystical Artifacts and Muggle Relations!

ESTJ: It’s your seventh year at Hogwarts, and you practically run the place. From the moment you’ve arrived you’ve had one ambition: to become the Minister of Magic. You’re a Prefect in Slytherin, naturally, and you’ve won the hearts of your peers as the Captain of the Quidditch team. Things are going just as you planned.

ISFJ: You’ve decided to focus on potions—anything that might cure a stomachache or fever of your Hufflepuff brethren. In such close quarters illness seems like a constant (and there seems to be plenty of queasy-candy finding its way into the mouths of first-years lately.) Due to your skills people are constantly coming to you for help. You’ve been at Hogwarts three years, and already they’ve asked you to volunteer in the hospital wing. Which, of course, you do gladly.

ISTJ: Hogwarts is falling apart! The walls are crumbling and the ceilings sag. It’s your job—nay, your duty to fix up the place. You’re glad for a wand. It makes your handiwork go a lot more quickly. You walk through the halls casting spells, making repairs and wondering why no one else feels the same sense of responsibility to keep the place in tip-top shape—not even your other fellow Hufflepuffs!

INTP: You’ve seen it. That shadow lurking behind that First Year. Might be a Crumple-Horned Snorkack, you decide. Perhaps someone has turned it invisible—that would explain their scarcity! You think to race up to discuss your theory with your other Ravenclaw friends, but stop to realize you’ve just walked into the Forbidden Forest. You shrug and continue walking. Wouldn’t be the first time in your six years at Hogwarts you’ve wandered into the forest, and you’ve always made it out alive…Barely.

ENTP: Classes bore you. Mischief is your game. You’ve landed the Marauder’s Map and have taken to exploring the halls at night with your Gryffindor friends. It’s the perfect time to lay traps for your least favorite professor—the grumpy old windbag Potions Master. And you’ve invented all kinds of magical joke items to sneak into his office. Mischief Managed.

ENTJ: It’s your first year at Hogwarts, and you’re thrilled to be sorted into Slytherin. Immediately, you’ve been established as the leader of the pack. Your favorite pastime is hosting Wizard Duels after hours near the edge of the Forbidden Forest against Gryffindor. So far you’ve not been beaten. You know that if you were caught you’d be punished—but that’s okay. You make your own rules. Ten points to Slytherin!

INTJ: You’re in your first year at Hogwarts and you’ve already read every book that’s been assigned—twice. At most, the other Ravenclaws have only read them once, so you have an edge. You have ambitions: you will be number one in your class; you will be an Auror; you will be the most powerful wizard in history. You might not be the most talkative person outside of class, but inside you speak your mind freely. Defense Against the Dark Arts is your bent. Though you feel strangely guilty that it is the Dark that fascinates you more than the defending part of the class. You try to shake the feeling off. Time to test your powers against those Slytherins and Gryffindors outside.

    This is so great! But maybe I love it because I am an INFP. Of course, I might relate a LITTLE to the INTJ.

    I am a INTJ and Slytherin. Because I a bit confused, because you haven’t say what house the INTJ are, you are saying that we are ambitious so does that mean we are Slytherins or what.

    • This post is definitely a ‘just for fun’ post. Not all INTJs are Ravenclaw. I would venture to say that some are in every house.

      Also, Harry Himself possessed many Slytheryn characteristics yet was placed in Gryffindor!
