    BTW announcing that Dumbledore was gay was just stupid political b.s.
    There is absolutely NOTHING in the books that is even remotely suggestive of ANY sexuality on Dumbledore's part, towards women or men.

    And I forgot:

    Can you give me a page number from the book, or a chapter at least where this is found...I'm not saying I refuse to believe you, but this is the first I've heard of such a thing, and perhaps re-reading about it will change my mind.

    It's partially based on the commentaries of the author. I think it can be considered canon.

    Yes. J.K wrote it in such a way that SHE knew what happened between the two, but made it seem like they were just friends. She later said that Dumbledore was gay, so it made it seem obvious that the two were in love. I suppose she didn't make them have an obvious relationship because it's primarily a children's book.

    They don't tend to be as inclined to, but if they choose to, they can. However Rowling didn't, anyway. Everything in her wizarding world is taken from obscure folklore and religious symbolism (e.g. stags are symbols of Christ and salvation, and the Latin Harry uses to conjure one suggests that's not a coincidence), which she researched extensively before writing the books. Several British authors had written successful children's stories about 'magic boarding schools' shortly before she did and the basic plot is allegory for the New Testament.

    Although it doesn't seem to be her own style particularly, perhaps because she's primarily writing for children, she's said that she likes reading books that include lots of detailed description and paint a vivid picture - which is something introverted Se-users will be more likely to have the patience for.

    Hmmm...ok. But isn't in more N to research many things with the intention of making your creation the best it can be? And having an INTEREST in spending that long, trapped away in your head, creating something to do with fantasy?

    Not necessarily. I don't know the circumstances in which she announced it, but when interviewed it's not uncommon for authors to talk about things they think about the characters, and the backstory and plot, that aren't actually spelled out in the books. And there's nothing wrong with that. The fact that it's viewed in any way politically is due to society, not due to her actions.

    If I had the time, I think it would be fun.

    Voldemort extravert?!? No way. He was a talker, yes, but he always kept a secret agenda. He thought people as inferior and annoying to him - and was so happy he was NOT of them. He didn't belong to the Muggles when he was with them. He didn't belong to the wizards when he was with them, either. He was superior to them. He uses people, and talking is just a means to manipulate them.
    Wizard ENFP along muggles: "Hey, look at this! What if I try that out on our teacher?"

    Please explain this one. I don't know his type, but for some reason I can't see an ENTP in him. If it's so clear, I want to know!
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    I suppose she is entitled to her ideas since they are her characters, I just can't help but wonder as it is ALSO not uncommon for authors to say things in their books based on current social issues. Controversy sells. Look at Dan Brown.
