“I’ll join you when Hell freezes over,” said Neville. “Dumbledore’s Army!” he shouted, and there was an answering cheer from the crowd, whom Voldemort’s Silencing Charms seemed unable to hold.

Happy 34th Birthday to a true Gryffindor and one of the bravest characters I’ve ever known, Neville Longbottom.

HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: one family [1/1] → The House of Black

The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black was one of the largest, oldest and wealthiest pure-blooded wizarding families in Britain, and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. The Black family tree is displayed in the drawing room of the family home at 12 Grimmauld Place in London on an intricate tapestry. Most Black family members are named after stars or constellations.

Hermione Granger is an INFJ if there ever was one.


When it comes to Harry Potter and MBTI, I see Hermione Granger labeled as a Thinking type almost every time, but I strongly disagree with that assessment. I believe that Hermione Granger is an INFJ and this is my attempt to explain why.

The INFJ functions primarily on introverted intuition, in which the mind categorizes input into meanings and symbols. I believe this is what Hermione Granger’s brain does. She is able to intuitively figure out things that others overlook such as Professor Lupin’s lycanthropy or the the sword of Gryffindor is coated in basilisk venom because she is always sorting through impressions, meanings, and possibilities. I think the reason that many believer her to be a thinking type is because INFJs have a tertiary introverted thinking function in which the INFJ is also very logical, able to categorizes, analyze, see inconsistencies in data, and deftly solve mental problems. But as Dr. A.J. Drenth wrote in an analysis on INFJs: “It is difficult to broadly classify INFJs as either right-brained or left-brained since they utilize both sides of the brain with equal adeptness. INFJs are both creative and responsible, artistic and logical, spiritual and scientific, intuitive and analytic.” I think that is the best descriptor of Hermione Granger’s mind.

The weakest function for the INFJ is extroverted sensing, which Hermione was shown by the first book to be weak-in. Harry found that she was nervous about broom flying because it was not the kind of subject one could learn from a book. Magical education is largely theoretical, but there is a strong physical aspect to broom flying. Indeed, Hermione never was comfortable with broom flying throughout the series.

The secondary trait of INFJs is their extroverted feeling. I think this is a very strong trait of Hermione. You’ll remember that she lambasted Ron for having the “emotional range of a teaspoon” when she could easily see all the different factors that were likely influencing Cho Chang. Also, even though she is smart enough to be in Ravenclaw, she was sorted into Gryffindor because her personal values of moral courage and friendship were more meaningful to her than books and cleverness. Although Hermione was never shown to be shy, INFJs are typically outgoing introverts. Hermione was able to socialize well within Hogwarts but maintained a small group of tight-knit friends. In the first year, she was found to be a know-it-all because of her desire for acceptance which caused her to attempt to prove herself to both Hogwarts students (many of whom were born into the magical world) and teachers alike. Harry could see in Hermione’s eyes a resolve to prove to Snape that she was not a “dunderhead.” Hermione has always been smart, but she was more high-strung and aggrandizing about it in an attempt to find social acceptance. She also has a clearly defined system of right-and-wrong in her head and filters her experiences through it. That is why she is offended at the way Winky the House Elf is treated and goes on to support the liberation of house elves. She feels called to take what her mind processes and her heart feels into the world in some kind of organized form such as a club that protests for the rights of house elves. When she gets her career, she works in the Ministry of Magic, changing the wizarding world through official systems.

Some say that Hermione is an INTP, but she is largely judging. Especially, in the first food, Herminoe was fastidious about rules and tended toward a lawful-good alignment. Although she later became more neutral-good, she always respected authority (apart from Umbridge) and recoiled in horror nearly every time Harry suspected Snape because Snape was a Hogwarts teachers. She also has the judging tendency to be very passionate and intense about her positions, to the point of stubbornness.

And so I put forth to the evidence that Hermione Granger is an INFJ. I know it doesn’t fit into those cute MBTI character charts where every type is represented, but Hermione Granger is an INFJ.
