    Really? I thought Ron was kind of ESFPish but I could see how ISTP would work.

    Hagrid = ISFJ?
    I <3 ISFJs.

    Luna Lovegood an INTJ? I would say she's far more INxPish

    Harry: IXFP
    Hermione: INXX
    Ron: ISTP(He's good at chess like an NT, but I'm sure he's not an INTP.)
    Snape: INTJ
    Dumbledore: XNXP(Probably introverted.)
    McGonnigal: ENTJ
    Molly Weasley: ENFJ
    Arthur Weasley: ENFP

    Ron's an S- and an Artisan for sure. S types can be good at chess too.

He's learned to FAKE personal interest in people over the many decades of his life, but this personal interest simply wasn't there when he was younger. In fact, even INTJ remains iffy for me, because a normal INTJ would have cared about his sick little sister (Tertiary Fi) far more than Dumbledore did when he was young. Also, I'm not so sure about him being an Introvert: he seems reclusive *when seen through Harry's eyes*, but that doesn't mean much. As the Headmaster, he would have a social life that Harry would know next-to-nothing about. We do know that throughout his life, he was deeply involved in all sorts of groups and common ventures, and that he's *always* seen himself as a leader. So for all those reasons, I'm tempted to type him as ENTJ.

    )

    Dumbledore is probably most commonly typed INFJ. But is this really his core type, or does he just wear that hat when the situation calls for it like the clever, well-developed ENTP fox that he is?

    First consider that a person’s type preferences and dominant functions are usually most apparent in youth, before the others have become more integrated. In “The Deathly Hollows”, when we finally get some of Dumbledore’s backstory, we see pretty clearly that he was more Promethean NT knowledge seeker than NF idealist. That’s what ended up getting him into trouble: his thirst for dangerous knowledge and its power, which was always his addiction (he tells Harry in the King’s Cross scene: “power was always my weakness and temptation”.) And his dominant function was likely Ne: grand ideas and schemes, adventure-seeking, possibilities, etc.

    Second, was he really more J than P? I think not. There are plenty of examples of him bending the rules. He was always flexible and situational, fluid, great at juggling and multi-tasking (all P). Rules per se were never high on his list of priorities, otherwise he and Harry would have clashed too much. Compare Dumbledore to J’s Snape and McGonagall, both of whom P type Harry always had more problems with.

    We get to know Dumbledore as a wise old man, who has integrated his lesser functions and can certainly be the INFJ counselor at times. But all things considered his root type is more likely ENTP.

Every race they met on their way through the Core had a star drive based on a different theory. All those theories worked, even when they ruled out one another’s basic assumptions. You could travel between the stars, it began to seem, by assuming anything.”

    I realize this is kind of a tangent, but I have to be nitpicky and point out that that's really more of a SJ thing or even a J thing in general...I got straight As and didn't study ever in high school either (in the "advanced classes" too, for what that's worth, which is not much), while most of my INTJ friends studied a lot for their marks. I don't think SPs tend towards excessive studying, to say the least.

    To make my post vaguely on-topic, I'll say that I agree that Hermione is an SJ (I think ISTJ, but I could see ISFJ, or possibly INxJ) and Harry is ISFP, maybe ISTP.

    Haha, yah, many of the SPs I know, particularly the extroverted ones, aren't so into academia. So I'll agree, although I've met exceptions. in the top 10 of my high school class, I am pretty sure that two of the girls were ESFP (although one might've been ENFP) and they studied a lot.

    I have INTJ friends who are in med school, and they study a lot now, but they didn't nearly as much in high school or undergrad. I know a lot of INTJs (and I am one too, as is my husband ), and hardly any of the ones I'm around were/are studyaholics Perhaps your INTJ friends are high J types?

    IMO, Harry seems too emo to be T. I'll believe ISFP though. And, Hermione seems too no-nonsense to be F.

    A lot of INTJs figure out that they don't need to study hard to get high marks and therefore don't. I'm in high school and I've figured out that it's to my benefit, points-wise to do all the homework assignments, but I never take too long on them and I don't study outside of that. In fact, I'm somewhat of a slacker.

    I hate memorizing things and hate when teachers insist that things be memorized -- I'm good at reasoning out things, but no good at memorizing.

    INTJ's interests may stray towards the academic pursuits as their interests but when it actually comes to academics they'll probably do their version of the minimum amount of work.

    Considering the vast amounts of knowledge that Hermione has and that she seems to be able to remember *everything* about *everything*, and that she always seems to be studying, and the way she's proud when she can do spells right before everyone else, she's probably an SJ of some sort. Wild guess says ISTJ.

    Haha, yes, in high school (and even in grad school, which I'm currently doing), I do tend to do "my version" of the minimum and still hold a 4.0. Yet I definitely am interested in my field, and I study a lot of related topics independently. Something about the formality and "ought-to," as well as being graded, makes me have a hard time giving much more. Perhaps it's a function of the INTJ independence?

    Speaking of which, Umbridge was a nightmarish version of an ESTJ. I hated her!

    And yah, I've never known any INTJs who seem overtly proud of their precocious abilities. If anything, the ones I know (including me, as a kid) were always somewhat shy/uncomfortable about that...
