    Default 4 temperament houses, 4 Harry Potter houses, well?

    Hey everyone, I am not even that much into Harry Potter but I think it would be interesting if we discussed which temperament fits which Harry Potter house.

    I personally (with a HUGE bias towards SJ's) think that SJ = Gryffindor, NT = Slytherin, NF = Ravenclaw, SP = Hufflepuff.

    What do you guys think?

    Actually I think you have Gryffindor and Hufflepuff flipped. Also, I see NT for both Ravenclaw and Slytherin. :/

    I don't know much about Harry Potter, but this is what the Internet and two movies have taught me:
    Gryffindor = bravery
    Ravenclaw = intelligence
    Hufflepuff = hard-working
    Slytherin = ambition

    By the way, for discussions like this, it's better to post them in a more generic subforum instead of a type-specific subforum.

    I don't think they align very well, even though I like the idea of the 4 temperaments and 4 Houses.

    Gryffindor seems kind of SP/NF, Ravenclaw NT, Slytherin NJ/TP, and Hufflepuff SF.

    I vote SJs be Hufflepuff. Not because they are a stng house or anything, but just because I like saying "Hufflepuff". It's just fun to say.

    Yeah, these don't align much at all with the temperaments.

    Gryffindor has strong shades of SFJ and SFP in terms of its values (honor, chivalry, nobility, "helping someone in need," rebelliousness, impulsiveness, reckless bravery, etc.,.) Ravenclaw has shades of NT and IxFJ (good grades, academics, detachment, scholarship, rationality), Hufflepuff SJ and FJ (self-abnegation as a positive value, hard work, loyalty, dedication, humility), and Slytherin STJ, NTJ, and STP (support for tradition, prudence, practicality, means justifies the ends, ambition, opportunism, independence, etc.,.)

    NFPs go wherever, I guess.

    @tinker683,

    Incidentally, the Houses do correlate to elements: Gryffindor/fire, Slytherin/water, Hufflepuff/earth, Ravenclaw/air.

    If we cross-correlated via the elements, I suppose we could say -

    Gryffindor - fire - SP
    Slytherin - water - NF
    Hufflepuff - earth - SJ
    Ravenclaw - air - NT

    It actually seems fairly reasonable besides Slytherin/NF, which seems odd. "Cunning, resourcefulness, and ambition" like more NT traits, while protective obsession (eg with blood purity) seems NJ.

    Gryffindor - fire - SP
    Slytherin - water - NJ
    Hufflepuff - earth - SJ
    Ravenclaw - air - NP

    I suppose that's a possibility.

    Regardless I tend to think that students of all different types would be sorted into the Houses.

    I think houses have more to do with enneagram types but I'd say
    SPs-Gryffindor with SFPs leaning towards Hufflepuff, ISTPs leaning towards Ravenclaw, and ESTPs leaning towards Slytherin
    SJs-Hufflepuff with extraverted SJs leaning towards Gryffindor and ISTJs leaning towards Ravenclaw
    NFs-ENFJs could be either Gryffindor or Slytherin, ENFPs would be Gryffindors, INFJs could fit in each house and INFPs would lean towards Ravenclaw and Gryffindor
    NTs- NTJs would be Slytherins while NTPs would be Ravenclaws, ENTPs could lean towards Gryffindor though

    Yeah, that's probably the best analysis of it.

    Hufflepuff: SJ, FJ
    Gryffindor: SP (Harry, Ron, Ginny, McClaggen and Mr. Weasley are all SPs in the movies), ESxJ (Mrs. Weasley is an ESFJ, Percy is an ESTJ and Hermione is an ESTJ)
    Ravenclaw: NT/NF
    Slytherin: xSTJ, NT

    And of course there will always be odd ones such as Dumbledore (INFJ) being in Gryffindor, and I suspect that the Weasley twins are NTs.

    I think you'll find that Enneagram fits better with Hogwarts houses.

    Ravenclaw NF and not NT?

    For realz?

    I'd like to know how the OP arrived at this decision. I'm hoping it's something more sophisticated than "'NT's are evil, so therefore, slytherin."

    Anyway, isn't the defining characteristic of Slytherin really ambition? That seems to be something SP's concern themselves with more. Certainly more than us lazy INTP's, who are content to be skilled at things that have no practical application. I'd argue Slytherin = SP based on the ambition thing, although who ever broke it down further than the temperaments or said it referred to enneagrams is probably closer to the mark.

    Meanwhile, Gryffindor is all about moral heroism, convictions, the value of friendship, doing the right thing vs. following rules, the redeeming power of love, etc. Total NF porn. Apparently, Rowling is an NF, so it wouldn't surprise me if her heroes were the same.

    Contrast this with George R.R. Martin. Whatever his type, I doubt he's an NF.
