    I've been reading the Hermione debate, and it's amusing to see all the N votes. I personally can't see it, as while she does develop her N side further throughout the series, there were still clear SJ indicators in there. I won't restate the ones from the first few books as they're extremely evident, but if you consider in the sixth book when Harry found a more efficient way to make potions, Hermione refused to even entertain the thought of using them because they weren't the "official" instructions. I vote ISTJ.

    I can't see Harry being INFP. ISFP would make more sense, but I'm not too sure about his type. Maybe because he's the character of the books I care less about.

    Ron- ISFP or ISTP
    Hermione- ISTJ or ISFJ. Maybe just a teenage female ISTJ so more emotional.
    Dumbledore- INFJ. Yes, even after the last book.
    Voldemort- INTJ
    Snape- INTJ
    Lupin- so INFP it hurts
    Tonks- ESFP I'd guess.
    Sirius- ENFP
    Luna- another INFP
    Draco- ENTJ
    Lucius-ENTJ?
    Narcissa- ISFJ
    Neville- another INFP? could be?
    Mrs. Weasley- ESFJ
    Mr Weasley- ENTP?
    Twins-ENTP or ENFP
    Hagrid- ISFP
    MacGonagall- ENTJ
    Vernon- ESTJ
    Petunia- ISTJ
    Dudley- ESTP
    Dobby- ISFJ?

    Good list, dorareever! I agree with most of them. You’re dead on with the Dursleys and probably Dobby too. Even those I disagree with are interesting.

    Hermione is probably the most difficult main character to type. Clearly she has stronge usage of functions outside of any one type. She could be an INTJ with a very high Si memory function and pretty good F functions at times. Her crusade to free the House Elves seemed quite NF. She comes across as ISTJ at times, obviously. At least there’s no doubt about her being a J.

    The only one I’ll bother challenging you on is Dumbledore. I already made my case for him as an ENTP earlier in this thread. If you can make a better one for him being an INFJ, I’d love to read it.
    "Space was big, and the boys from Earth were awed despite themselves by the things they found there: but worse, their science was in a mess. 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.”

    Dobby- ISFJ?
    house-elves, by default, would be labeled isfj. if myers-brigg is applicable to them, however, I'd say Dobby would be an enfp. He's one of the (probably) very few house-elves who sought freedom. He was daring enough to sneak out of the malfoy's manor to warn Harry about the coming dangers in 1992. He also sympathized with winky when other elves looked down on her in her time of need. An isfj house-elf would be one of the most severely obident kinds house-elves.


    Anyway, here are some of my thoughts:

    harry; istp

    harry displays a lot of T toughness when putting up with the Dursleys. Also, when I think of isfp, I think of refined senses, a gentle touch and warm sentiment. Harry, however, generally bottles up his thoughts/emotions until they explode IN CAPLOCKS FURY! He excels in logical problem solving when under pressure and ,overall, is either distant and reserved OR aggressive and actiony, which suggests T to me.

    had harry had grown up normally, I still couldn't imagine that he would've engage in anything that involved his feeling side

    hermione; enfj

    the hermione jkr presents in the first book is an estj. she's a bossy know-it -all who aggressively involves herself in every situation. She is firmly against rule breaking, and associates herself with authority figures such as percy and mcgonagall; also, her intelligence and hardwork quickly earn her a place as top student.

    her confidence, however, masks her need of acceptance and fear of failure.

    The ENFJ may feel quite lonely even when surrounded by people. This feeling of aloneness may be exacerbated by the tendency to not reveal their true selves.
    i agree that hermione's background may have lead her to be more aggressive than the average ENFJ, but all in all she is very compassionate, generous, passionate, etc.

    she's definitely more multi-faceted than ron and harry. i suspect this is due to her establishment as intelligent from the very beginning. hermione's role as "brains" in the trio is convenient because she can have vast amounts of random, linear knowledge AND particularly ingenious and insightful without actually worrying about whether she's a sensor or intuitive, etc.


    ron; esfp
    fred; extp
    george; isfp
    • It should be noted that Fred is the more dominant twin, while George show considerable more amounts of emotions/morals. they maybe twins, but they don't have be exactly the same.

    molly; esfj
    arthur; enfp
    percy; estj
    ginny; potential enfp

    draco; estp
    neville; ixfp
    luna; infp
    • more F than T in her faith based beliefs, aggressive defense of her beliefs,
      ease with comforting harry after sirius' death.

    dumbledore; entp
    mcgonagall; estj
    hagrid; isfj
    flitwick; potential infp
    • intelligent and creative (head of Ravenclaw); cried when Ginny was taken
      the Chamber of Secrets; flexible, forgiving teacher; only aggressive when
      defending hogwarts from death eaters.

    trelawny; potential infp
    • since she's nutters

    sirius; enxp
    lupin; infx
    james; estp
    lily; enfj
    snape; intj
    voldemort; intj
    bellatrix; fuck

    LOL


    I wonder if Luna is an INFP though (as everyone seems to think)...I mean, she doesn't seem to take *anything* personally, and from what I have read, this is almost a quintessential trait of the type. Also, remember how quick she was to answer the doorknob to the Ravenclaw Tower's question?

    She struck me as being in an almost perpetual state of detachment. Having odd beliefs, I think, does not necessarily exclude the possibility of her being INTP.

    I was under the impression that the reasons why she didn't want to use the Prince's instructions weren't so much because they were "unofficial", but because she believed it to be dishonest and unfair. With everybody on equal footing (i.e. using the same instructions), then the person with the most skill would truly come out on top. With Harry using someone else's innovations, he was being dishonest and cheating.
