Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

Swiped this from dickgloucester, with whom I share this personality. Thanks, Dicky! :-D

This is a fun quiz. I've taken it a few times before, and I always end up either INTJ (Snape) or ISTJ (Hermione). These are the same results I get when I take the full Myers-Briggs (which I sometimes do for fun when one of our psych profs gives it to his class). In my younger years, I was always and invariably INTJ; in the last few years, I've edged more consistently toward ISTJ.

PS -- I'm not fully convinced by the character designations in the quiz; some make more sense than others. But they are all fun. My partner came out as Sirius Black (ENTP), but she almost always turns out an "I" on more formal quizzes, so this result seems a bit skewed. Otherwise, the quiz seems fairly accurate, at least in replicating M-B results.

Me neither. For instance, I don't really see Minerva as much of an "E." But perhaps that's just projection.

As I said to Maggie above, I'm not much of a psych buff . . . in truth I have no clue about how they came up with the test, how valid a measure the questions asked are and how the answers are quantified (and what the standard deviation around each personality designation is . . . or even the non-standard deviation XD ). I have ha hard time taking anything like this seriously as science, but then, I'm biased. :-)

Our psych prof (the one I take the test from) doesn't feel that the Myers-Briggs is a very reliable indicator of personality; he says other tests are better and that most clinicians wouldn't take the M-B very seriously these days. I'm not sure of the rationale, though.

I guess that means that you are getting softer in your ascending years? (Or, perhaps, that you are knowing more.) ::ggg::
