1. ## Hogwarts Houses...

Okay, I had to start this one. They seem to sort the kiddies at Hogwarts into houses based on singular personality traits, so I was curious to see if it would be possible to allocate a house for every type. And whether that would end up with terribly lopsided numbers.

So, here we go:

Gryffindor: 'brave', 'daring', 'chivalrous' (disregard for the rules?)
ENFP, ENFJ, ESTP, ISTP

Hufflepuff: 'just', 'loyal', 'hard-working'
INFP, INFJ, ISTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ

Ravenclaw: 'wise', 'clever', 'intelligent'
ENTP, INTP

Slytherin: 'cunning', 'ambitious', 'sharp'
ENTJ, INTJ, ESTJ, ESFP, ISFP

Rearrange at will!

I don't think it's that black and white. Some types can be in either of two houses, so there is quite a lot of overlapping. Generally, Gryffindor = NF, Hufflepuff = SJ, Slytherin = SP, and Ravenclaw = NT.

Gryffindor: ISFP, ESFP, ESFJ, xNFx
Hufflepuff: xSJx, IxFP, INFJ
Slytherin: INTJ, INTP, ESxP, ISTP, ENTJ,
Ravenclaw: ENTP, INTP, INTJ, INFP

Hufflepuff - just from the description - has a lot of SJs and Ravenclaw, a lot of NTs. Gryffindor seems - just by the description - to attract bith NF and SP (but the kids we see in Gryffindor cover the spectrum) and - Slytherin?

The description keeps changing. "Ambition" the first year: ESTP, ESTJ, ENTP

"Pureblood" later - sounds pure-D SJ to me.

"Evil" still later, no ifs, ands, or buts - a lot of people see SPs that way.

Severus Snape, Syltherin, INTJ or a possible rider on ISTP or (in 3rd place) ISTJ.

But note how many of the adult baddies were damaged SJs. Umbridge. The Minister of Magic. Percy Weasley.

4. I mostly identify with Ravenclaw.

5. i mostly identify with Hufflepuff. i took the OKcupid house sorter about 10 times trying to get something other than hufflepuff, but apparently i am just pure hufflepuff.

6. I get Ravenclaw the most often, although occassionally I get Hufflepuff.

I don't know that they do that. Each House seems capable of housing almost any type. Remember, the sorting hat will also listen to a child's preferences, if they're on the borderline of two Houses (like it did with Harry, who is such an NF at heart, but could have actually been put into Slytherin, a House that stands for everything Gryffindor does not). I agree with those who say it isn't black and white.

I align myself with all of the Houses significantly, even Slytherin. Most likely, I'd be in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw. I'd say I'd also possibly end up in Hufflepuff, but if the sorting hat were sitting on my head I'd say, "I don't want a badger for a mascot, I don't want a badger..."

LOL. Seriously, Hufflepuff got the shaft in the books.

I tried to avoid the 'evil' stereotype, for Slytherins. Instead I was looking at the most positive traits for each, or at least the one's the house prides itself on. (And seriously, I think that's presuming a bit to say that lots of people think SPs are evil!) Just because the typical Gryffindor traits (like honesty) contrast with typical Slytherin traits (like being cunning), they're seen as bad, and we all know the whole books are from a very Gryffindor-ish point of view.

I also wonder whether Gryffindor would end up with all the slackers, because the three other houses seem to have some sort of requirement for the intelligence/dilligence of their students.

And personally, I don't feel like I fit any house particularly well. I'm a little bit of all four.

9. Ravenclaw: 'wise', 'clever', 'intelligent'
ENTP, INTP

Slytherin: 'cunning', 'ambitious', 'sharp'
ENTJ, INTJ, ESTJ, ESFP, ISFP

INTJ in Slytherin, No No No. I consider myself certainly Clever and Intelligent and maybe, one day, wise. INTJ should be in Ravenclaw, no doubt in mind at all (well there wouldn't be would there?)

10. I ended up in Slytherin- I guess falling into the stereotype!
