Harry is ISFP... he lives in the moment, is moved more easily by sentiment than logic, but prefers the company of a select few. It isn't that he can't be tough (he plays Quidditch to win), but gave out second chances to Malfoy when the room of requirement was burning up, and another one to Voldemort when he knew it was kill or be killed (while Voldemort rejected the side-offer of remorse, Harry still offered it).
Hermonine is ESTJ. Her basic nature is to follow the rules, a very SJ trait. She is also outgoing, but her Hogwarts years probably were not kind to her as a straightlaced intellectual girl is not a trait females of her age gravitate towards.
Ron is ESFP. He also lives in the moment, but likes people, and is friends with most people he knows. He's not very intellectual, but stands by his friends.
Percy is classic ESTP. Top grades, total belief in the government, law and order, and a law abiding member of the community. He's government type, rules and regulations, and only in the end does he see that maybe the rules are wrong.
Fred and George: ENFP. They LOVE to be the center of attention, and everything from Quidditch to their joke shop supports that. Yeah, it is flashy magic, but it sells, and the twins knew it.
Arther and Molly Weasely: ESTP and ESFP. Pillars of the community, respected and loved by most, and a traditional family with the husband in a solid government job, and the wife the homemaker. It changed during wartime, but they always have been the traditional couple.
Albus Dumbledore: INTJ. Smart, bookish, an arrogant intellectual snob... capable of loving very deeply a select few. He had his endgame planned from the start, and Harry was always a pawn to it. Eliminating Voldemort meant human sacrifices. He did grow to love Harry, but like with Grindlewelt, it didn't suppress his ultimate game.
Snape: INTJ. INTJs are capable of love, but only a few and very deeply. The opposite is true as well; they can carry a deep grudge. Snape has been the ideal triple agent, a reclusive man who favors most of Voldemort's ideals. But when he murdered Lilly, he crossed an unbreakable line. Love can turn to hate, and INTJs can easily turn the fabric of it on it's head. Love for Lilly turned her murder into hatred for Voldemort. A goal for an INTJ is a holy grail Snape grasped at the end.
Aberborth: He's probably ESFP. As a barman, he has to deal with the public, and he had a deep love for his sister. He wasn't big on being clean, and only reluctantly gave his aid at the end. Still, while in the shadow of his highly respected brother, perhaps he can take a quantum of solace in learning his brother felt he was the more admirable of them.
Ginny Weasley: ESTP: NOBODY tells her what to do, from her older brothers, to her parents. She's a great Quiddicth player, but smart and determined. She wants to go into battle, and has proved herself in it.
Luna: An amazing INTP. She lives in her own world, not caring to make friends (but deeply loves the ones she has). She has an amazing brain coupled with theoretical know how, and somehow regards real-life war as nothing more than a classroom exercise. She's also totally fearless. She may know some outcomes of her choices, but as an optimist, she thinks things will work out in the end.
First off- I've read every Harry Potter book 3+ times each, and have read the 3rd 8 times now. I have sen ever movie out hundreds of times, and I even visit a few Harry Potter fan sites, like Mugglenet.
That being said, I have thought long and hard towards their types, and with everything I know towards Harry Potter- this is what I have.
Harry Potter: ISFP
Harry is in the Griffyndor house, which in and of itself is an FP house- fighting for what they believe in. Harry is total non comformist, he avoids people, is very curious of things, likes to get cement evidence to put towards his theories, he isn't extremely logical, practical, or insightful, but acts spontaneously based on his emotions.
Ron is definitely SP, no doubt about it, he likes getting assurance from people around him (E), he sticks up for Harry even if means getting in trouble or risking safety (F), he defends his family values (F) and he is a perfect match as best friends with Harry. He also lacks a little self confidence, which doesn't necesarily an ESFP thing..
Hermione: ISFJ -> INFJ
She is clearly a SJ at the beginning of the storyline especially with how stuck up and prudy she was. But as the story got more involved, she really sets aside his little miss rule follower character and starts providing for Harry and his overall goal, in which, you can say she is more like an INFJ. If it weren't for her, Harry would have never made it through the Triwizard tournament, as well as other things she's pulled Harry through. She is secretive, especially with the time turner in the third book, and she can often see events as they are unfolding. They gives off a motherly vibe to Harry- something clear of her INFJ, and she is the strength he needs throughout the book.
This is pretty much a given, as he is very wise, and is rarely lead the wrong way. His intellect is sharp, his mind weary and sharp. His wit is sharp, and he almost gives off a bit of a silly character. From the seventh book, we find out about Dumbledore's past- how smart and perfect he was as a kid, his need for adventure, and his interest in the Deathly Hallows- which one can infer is very INFJ-like. He is very sensative and cares deeply for Harry as an individual (Fi).
Hagrid is a teddy bear- admitt it. He is very sensative- as with Norbert the dragon from the first book. He doesn't fight for justice- yet stands up for Harry and his values even though it risks his status as a teacher. He is definitely SJ, though, as he doesn't see the plot too clearly throughout the book.
Draco Malfoy: He seems very ESTJ, maybe ESTP.
Draco is a tough one, even with study. He is surely an EST, as he is constantly aggitating Harry and looking for trouble and trying to get back at Harry. His roll in the 6th book may show an ESTP side to him, and how much of a struggle it was for him to fix the disappearing chair in the room of requirments. He sees his destiny as a death eater (even though he doesn't end up bad in the very end of the 7th), and is loyal to them.
Arthur Weasley/Weasley twins- ENTP.
No doubt about it- they love experimenting, Arthur is fascinated with Muggle's- something that not the average wizard would be interested in. Arthur is clever, intelligent, and yet very loyal and supportive of his family, which may argue with ENTP- but his overall character is ENTP...The twins- obviously ENTPs- very playfull, always pulling pranks, are extremely ingeniuos, clever, and are always inventing things- hense the name "Inventor" for ENTP.
Could be open to anything, though I'm leaning towards INTJ or maybe ISTJ. She seems pretty straightforward, and quiet.
I know there is a lot of fuss about him being an INTJ, but you must look into him. He lives a terrible life, was made fun of all throughout school, and struggled with what side he belonged to, though we know he was loyal to Dumbledore. He is an overall mystery throughout most of the storyline, he's very intelligent, witty, dark, and clever (INT). I'm saying P for I can see the internal struggles he was constantly facing, and how not straightforward he is. If he was a J, he'd be a little easier to understand and type and straightforward.
NO WAY IS HE AN ENTJ, as is clearly states numerous times throughout the 6th and 7th for his want of solitude, and how he preferred to do things on his own. He had is own agenda- his own plan and stuck with it. He was curious, extremely intelligent, and sort of self absorbed, though he lived a tragic life. He had a small exclusive group of followers and was never open to any of their ideas, and never ever talked about himself or his life. INTJ fits Voldemort like..like..something that fits another thing very well!
Lupin was the quiet, sensative, secretive on of the group when he was in school with james, sirius, and peter. His story was a secret, and only his friends knew for a long time of his second life. He treated Harry as an individual (Fi), and overall gave off a very seclusive, quiet, mellow vibe- INFP.
Sirius and James were pranksters, and goofed off quite a bit, as we so often were told throughout the stories. Though they both may also be ESFPs, the two of the were warriors at heart, and stood up against the evil in the world.
Neville is a lot like Harry, surprisingly, yet they have both lived two very different lifes. He is quiet, self conscious, has a low self esteem, and is a very curious kid. He is frank, kind, and you can't not like him. He sticks up for his values- as seen in the 5th book where he tries to avenge his parents when he meets Bellatrix. He has lived a sad life, almost as sad as Harry's, but we have to infer that as the story is of Harry's perspective, in a way.
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?
Voldemort has an ENTJ vibe going on. Possibly XNTJ.
Dumbledore has an INFJ vibe going on.
They are very interesting N characters. I don't see anybody as an INTJ unfortunately. Voldemort is the closest. The first book gave me the impression that Voldemort was an INTJ, but later on his strong Te becomes more apparent. The books/movies would be better with one, if one of the already main characters were one.
There's no way she's Ti dominant. She actually believes all the tripe in her father's magazine. She's an expert on weird creatures, and is interested in it to the exclusion of most other things. In many conversations, she mentioned 'facts' or ideas from the Quibbler. That's very Autistic, viewing the world largely in how it relates to her savant interest. She isn't connected to criticism, because she's abnormally detached from reality in general. Yet, she's also kind and has an underlying sense of warmth about her. I think she has Aspergers.
"Although [Dumbledore] seems to be so benign for six books, he's quite a Machiavellian figure, really. He's been pulling a lot of strings. Harry has been his puppet," she explained. "When Snape says to Dumbledore [toward the end of 'Hallows'], 'We've been protecting [Harry] so he could die at the right moment' — I don't think in book one you would have ever envisioned a moment where your sympathy would be with Snape rather than Dumbledore."
While Dumbledore grew to care for Harry, the goal above all, drove him. He never forgot that. That's typical of Ts that work towards a cause they believe in. They concentrate on the overall picture, not the individual people. INFJs aren't usually the type to scheme and manipulate. Nor do they usually sacrifice others for their goals. They would be the martyr first.
