Personality Types and Harry Potter

Hello everyone!

We were having a discussion about the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator and the Harry Potter characters over in the Deconstructing The Marauders V.8 thread in the History of Magic. The MBTI (Myer-Briggs Type Indicator) is a personality test that places people into 16 categories based on introverted/extroverted, sensing/intuiting, feeling/thinking, and perceivng/judging. Here is my post with explanations of these personality types. We were discussing whether or not the personality types people have would go along with liking certain characters more than others. The discussion first starts here and, after discussing many other things, we've started discussing the Harry Potter Personalities (based on the Pirate Monkey Harry Potter Personality Quiz) again here.

This thread is intended to test the idea that your personality type will go along with the characters you like best. To do this, you would take a shortened version of the MBTI test and post your results (it works fine to copy and paste) along with your 2 favorite Harry Potter characters.

Click here for the test.

*************
I'll go first:

Your Type is
INTJ
Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging
Strength of the preferences %
44 67 33 56

1) Harry Potter
2) Severus Snape

**************
Disclaimers, etc:
  • I have permission from "The Supreme Mugwump" (sorry, couldn't resist ) to start this thread here in the Common Room. Although it is similar to other threads, it is not the same.
  • "The Supreme Mugwump" has requested that no personal information about why you feel you might fall into a certain personality type be discussed in this thread.
  • The results page of the personality test should link to an explanation of the basic personality type. There is no good or bad personality type--the test is intended to explain your approach to relationships, solving problems, and the world in general. The percentages refer to how strong a particular personality trait is for you--the closer to "0," the less strong the trait. For example, 2% I (introverted) is close enough to 0% that you might test 2% E (extroverted) at another time.
  • The Pirate Monkey character personality types are found here, for anyone who is interested.
  • After every 100 responses, I'll try to post a compilation of results, so far.

INTJ
65% 66% 22% 78%

1. Severus Snape
2. Harry Potter/Albus Dumbledore

(I've got to read up more about this--it also would be fascinating to find out with which characters our types would most likely clash and see if it corresponds to our least-liked characters.)

(Please note that the previous parenthetical comment just demonstrated for one and all exactly what an INTJ is all about : ) !!!!!!!!!!!!)

"Wow, I wonder what it'd be like to have a difficult life?" said Harry sarcastically.

Qualitative analysis of your type formula

You are:

* slightly expressed extrovert
* slightly expressed sensing personality
* moderately expressed feeling personality
* slightly expressed perceiving personality

1] Ron Weasley

How true . That's why I love Severus Snape so much, it's because opposites attract, haha!

That sounds about right, I'm definetly a Introvert. I'm very shy in life, and would rather be on the computer then hanging with friends.


On the Harry Potter test I am Lord Voldemort. I'm not too sure about that, as I'm not very confident about things in life. I can't find anywhere on the site what my #2 outcome is. Can anyone help?
