It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Which Harry Potter Character are YOU?

From Florinda, who finds the best quizzes, I tells ya! This one is a Myers-Brigg type test, and guess what? When I took the Myers-Brigg test — offically, formally, with a trained psychologist — I came out exactly the same: INTJ. I could’ve saved myself a chunk of money and just gone to this website, couldn’t I?

  1. Hehe, Hubby too was Severus…I’m Proffessor Lupin, the werewolf.

  2. I need to pass along the credit for finding the quiz to Bub and Pie, since I got it from her blog first :-). (I steal from the best, what can I say?) I get inconsistent MBTI results, though, and am either Hermione (ISTJ) or Hagrid (ISFJ)- huh?

  3. I’m Dumbledore (INFJ) which seems right to me, except that I’m not nearly as wise as he was.

    I don’t think you remind me of Snape, Mary, except that the description in the box does seem like you. Interesting!

  4. Sheri: What are Lupin’s letters?

    Florinda: The 12-year-old who is here three days a week is an ISTJ, too, and the description fits her to a T. All these things are continua: perhaps you’re very close to the middle on the TF scale?

    Alison: The description in the box is a lot like me, yes. Resourceful and reserved, yes. Perfectionist? In some respects, but not many! Planning? Yes. No, I don’t often like to be the centre of attention (though sometimes I’m find with it), but I can absolutely lead a meeting or head a project. I like doing that. I don’t know about the emotional stuff. I certainly feel the emotions, but it’s true that only those who know me well can necessarily tell what I’m feeling, so evidently I don’t display them much.

  5. McGonagall — ENTJ. A natural leader, and likes organization, although is okay at improvising when necessary, apparently. Guess it works, although I’ve always thought of myself as more of a people-oriented introvert rather than an extrovert!

    And Mary, it’d be worth the money just to avoid the Snapism 😉 .

  6. Mary – I’m glad you asked…because I was going to ask you if you knew what the letters meant. INFP.

  7. Ha! I “discovered” the MBTI in the midst of my first major depression about 10 years ago. Learning that I’m an ENFP (the Weasley twins!) was a kind of freedom. You mean I’m not broken? You mean it’s normal for ME to be like this?

    If I had to guess I think Maya’s going to turn out ESFP (she notices everything. simply everything.), and that’s probably part of why I do well parenting her — I “get” her better than either my mom (ISFJ) or dad (ESTJ) ever did.

    I *heart* psychology. Can ya tell?

  8. nebcanuck: You misunderstand: I PAID for the assessment that showed me I was an INTJ — but I could have found out the very same info for free. Either way, that’s what I am! But there have to be some nice people who are INTJ…

    Sheri: The letters come in pairs. For example, the first pair is I/E: you’re either introverted or extroverted. Because your first letter is “I”, you, like me, are introverted. It would take too long to explain it all here, but this page has lots of good info., if you want to know more!

    Allison: I love this stuff, too, and the Myers-Briggs, always made good sense to me. There are lots of other such measures, of course, and isn’t it fun to play with them??

  9. It got me right too: ENFJ (although I am Olympe Maxime … really, a minor character is the best they could find? I guess this demonstrates the rarity of my personality type?) I’m “charismatic, sensitive and commanding; good at juggling a lot of tasks at once. ENFJs make good teachers and leaders and people naturally follow them.” I think I am a good teacher, and (if I may toot my own horn here, anonymously!) charismatic and sensitive. I don’t always feel “commanding” but maybe it’s in there waiting to be discovered?

  10. Ha! I’m Fred and George Weasley (ENFP)! That was a surprise. 🙂 I’m supposedly vivacious, adventurous and outgoing. I’m fun to be around, often the center of attention and I have a short attention span! Not exactly spot on as I’m rarely the center of attention–I prefer lurking on the sidelines–but they might be onto something with the short attention span, at least as far as housekeeping goes!
