    I have read all the books. I still don't see it. Seems more like a feeler. But maybe I'm...anti-projecting? I hated Neville because of his personality, his ineptitude, he seems more like a feeler to me.

    He makes a remarkable turn in the last book, but not enough to undue 6 other books' worth of not being an INTP.

    Could be.

    INFP might also work. Neville matures into a powerhouse...

    That he does. However, you don't really "mature" into your natural type do you? I'd like to think he was always an INFP and just developed a little confidence. He really was only good at herbology, which isn't even real magic IMO...

    And yes I'm aware of how absurd the term "real magic" is.

    Maturation needn't necessarily presume a transition.

    More like achieving a sense of comfort in one's skin.

    Normal type development--dominant, auxiliary, etc.,--always assumes that the environment supports the natural development of the child. And Neville's a lot like Harry in that both were deprived of normal childhoods. Imagine being raised by Granny because your parents are vegetables because of being hit with a forbidden curse. And you visit them all the time. Could cause inner conflict over developing magical skills, or totally destroy self-confidence for any endeavor until friends encourage you and you find out you can do more than you ever thought you could.

    IP seems likely for Neville...I'd have to read again to know which one. In fact I plan to...6 and 7 over winter break 'cause I had to speed read those the first time and haven't gotten back to them...

    Oh my God, but how do you know that you wouldn't?
    Intriguing...

    If an INTP is not good at something he takes an active interest in, then he's not an INTP.

He actually withdraws from him. That seems inferior Fe, not auxiliary Fe...
    The way he explores and explains Voldemort's motivations seems quite NFJ.

    (He's always thinking in terms of motivations anyway.)
