    I agree with you completely. But a few posters were saying that Dumbledore was an INTP because of his major screw up in the 7th book, when they obviously can't see that it was all because he was in love.

    That was my point, and I was being slightly sarcastic.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    It's the Si (upholding/taking part in the current systems) and Fi (being individually valued). Both ISXJs desire respect from their community, yet for different reasons (Fi vs. Fe).

Hermione's emotional reactions seemed like an exact replica of the way my ISFJ mom reacts to things.
    Does she ultimately act on her feelings? Or does she rely on her plans to get things done?

    (Side note: Also have an ISTJ aunt who responds the same way. She goes with her head, not her heart when it comes to judging important decisions.)

    No one's assuming anything about Dumbledore's type based on his ability to avoid making mistakes. I suggest reading the thread more closely.

    I feel like I missed something in that book. Who was he in love with? :confused:

    You're probably right. I'm just being an ignorant bitch.

    I personally see him as an INFJ, and really can't find anything to justify otherwise. I have read all books more times than I can count, a few times even trying to see him as a different type, but can't.

    And by the way, it was a little more generally directed than the posts limited by this thread. There have been many other threads on Harry Potter where people have made similar claims. But thanks.

    All J's have plans. I don't think Hermione planning things makes her more F than T. The way she planned those things and the intended effects her plans were meant to have would be an indication of whether she was an F/T.

    Then again, I don't really have any memory of what exactly the details of Hermione's plans were. Can somebody refresh my memory there?

    Dumbledore was gay. He fell in love with Grindelwald when Grindelwald came to live with Bathilda Bagshot in Godric's Hallow. Dumbledore was so wrapped up in love that he set aside his fragmenting family responsibilities, and went off on adventures seeking the Deathly Hallows with Grindelwald, and participating in wizard-elitist philosophies that he didn't necessarily agree with, but was pretending/wanting to because he was in love with Grindelwald.

    what type do you think Hermione and Dumbeldore are?

    Did you read the last book? It portrayed Dumbledore as being someone cared more about manipulating the people involved in his 'master plans' than he did about how those people actually felt. It's the textbook definition of how T's operate. His consideration of how he could 'use' people in his master scheme took precedence over his consideration of how those people would be emotionally effected by the situation. T over F. It's that simple, really.

    Many of her plans were driven by Te and Fi. An ISFJ is more of an immediate planner, they don't sit back to think of the best possible workable solution. They head right in to iron the emotional conflicts. (Compared to their INFJ counterpart, who probably would take some time to respond. Inferior Se; sensing.)
