...Neither of which is a Ti user, nor have you shown that anything he couldn't figure out required Ti.
I'd want to make a case for Dumbledore being a INT(something)
I: you don't know his plans/ideas/... until you are allowed to. He's secretive. The fact that he enjoys being among students counts towards E, but not enough in my opinion. N: quite evident, I think. Always trying to accomplish more goals with a single course of action. T: This is to me quite clear, but needs some arguments. He's big on love and all this... because he analyzes it! He studied love because that's a powerful magic. In Harry Potter's world, even the most Thinking T should study emotions because they do have an influence on reality - and not just through motivation for action, like in our world.
A Fi-driven Dumbledore wouldn't put Harry with the Dursleys. He wanted to make sure the blood-related magic worked... to protect Harry AND the whole wizarding world; at the cost of letting Harry suffer abuse. He rationally chose for the course of action which would make globally the least suffering.
Now just compare that to Harry's actions with respect to Ginny, like I explained in one of my previous posts.
Now I don't want to say Dumbledore is an unloving person. He did make strategic "mistakes" because of love - think him not telling everything to Harry in the first book. But there are more examples of him analyzing feelings than of him acting on feelings. J or P: I'm not sure on that one. He does have meticulous, detailed plans, even for after his death. At the other hand, he's able to incorporate new elements/data quite quickly. Harry let Wormtail run? Voldemort took Harry's blood? Plan gets adapted immediately, though no-one but Dumbledore knows it. That's actually the biggest difference(*) with Voldemort, who carries out his plan as planned, with no room for luck and friends (which saves Harry) and when it fails, he retreats and makes a new plan.
Dumbledore's plans allow for details to get 'wrong'. So... I don't know. He seems to have the best of two sides here. Plans and flexibility.
(*) Save for the side they are on, of course.
Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

In Philosophy 101 they call this an Argumentum ad Populum fallacy.
That's not quite what he's doing. For it to qualify as Argumentum ad Populum he would need to have said something along the lines of "my argument is stronger than your argument because most of these other people agree with me."
What he's actually saying, though, is that the fact that some other people agree with him means (1) that (contrary to your claims) his argument is not totally out there and (2) that you're just going to disagree to disagree without looking at the content. It's a discrediting tactic, yes, but not an instance of the particular fallacy you brought up.
HAHAHAHA are you guys SERIOUSLY seriously debating Harry Potter for forty pages to the point where you're throwing around latin debate fallacy phrases??
NYRDZ xTREEEM 5000.
Ok, ok, fine I'll get on topic and jump into the geek orgy...
As for houses.... I took those sorting test things when I was obsessed with HP as a kid... always got Slytherin, and by a pretty high margin. So, suffice it to say, ENTP = Slytherin?
Hey guys, I never said *I* wasn't a little dorkrat myself...
Slytherin is for sneaky, unprincipled fucks. That doesn't exclude ENTP, but ENTJ is a better fit.
As for your typings Hermione is a rule whore with no vision whatsoever -- Si-dom (ISTJ) rather than Ni-dom (INTJ). ISTP could fit for Harry, but I really do think he's an extrovert. You are 100% correct on Ron's type.
