Your ACTUAL Hogwarts House (According To Your Myers Briggs Personality Type)

I don't know about you, but when I first started getting into Harry Potter, I couldn't help but wonder where I'd fit into the Wizarding World. I'm sure a lot of other fans have wondered the same thing, and that all kind of boils down to one question that can make or break your existence in J.K. Rowling's world: what Hogwarts house do I belong to? As much as we don't want to put ourselves into boxes when it comes to real life, we're really quick to do it here, and who can blame us? Luckily, we can actually figure out our Hogwarts House thanks to our Myers Briggs personality type.

16 ISTP:  Ravenclaw/Gryffindor

The average ISTP would probably find themselves gravitating towards Ravenclaw, but the way they handle a lot of situations would make them look like a more introverted Gryffindor. This is because while ISTPs tend to be a bit quieter, these are people who know how to act quickly because that's how they're most comfortable. They're analyzers, like any Ravenclaw Primary, but when they're done analyzing, they move forward in a way that's pretty unique to Gryffindor. Out of everyone who could possibly be sorted into Gryffindor, these guys are some of the most analytical and cautious. When a problem appears, expect the ISTP to handle it quickly and efficiently, keeping in mind any cause and effect that could make the situation better or worse.

15 ESTP: Gryffindor/Slytherin

ESTPs would probably gravitate most towards Gryffindor or Slytherin thanks to their Gryffindor Primary and Slytherin Secondary. ESTPs, much like Gryfferins, are focused on doing the right thing and achieving the best results they can. They are incredibly spontaneous people who learn best by being hands-on about a situation. That's their Slytherin side talking that's always looking for an angle to take a situation on rather than charging at it like a Slytherin/Gryffindor would. ESTPs stand up for what they believe in much like a Gryffindor Primary would, but they're quieter about it than other Gryffindors because they're busy doing what they need to do behind the scenes to make things happen. If an ESTP is being loud or even obnoxious, there's a good chance they have something more important going on that they'd want to be quiet about. This is a telltale personality trait of the Gryffindor/Slytherin. Harry Potter himself is actually a Gryffindor/Slytherin according to this theory!

14 ISTJ: Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw

The ISTJ is kind of the quintessential Huffleclaw. These are your quiet, serious, practical people who value loyalty above all else. If you're an ISTJ, you're a logical person who handles most situations in that way, which is honestly how all Ravenclaw Secondaries want to handle things.

As for the Hufflepuff Primary part, ISTJs value community and hard work, which is a big deal for the average Hufflepuff and a big part of their lives no matter where or who they are. Hufflepuffs have a different sort of loyalty than the other Hogwarts houses: they're not loyal to people because it's the right thing or because they value those people, but because people are humans and are inherently valuable. ISTJs also love organization, which appeals to their Ravenclaw side.

13 ESTJ: Slytherin/Ravenclaw

The average ESTJ would fit perfectly into Slytherin or Ravenclaw thanks to their Slytherin Primary and Ravenclaw Secondary. ESTJs are realistic, practical, and great at taking care of those routine little things that other personality types just won't have the patience for. These are some of the most decisive people you'll ever meet because they have a set of rules that they live by and expect the world to live by themselves. That's their Slytherin side talking. They're visionary people who know how to take their sweeping vision and actually implement it, which is actually pretty darn cool. That's their Ravenclaw side: that allows them to be smart about the way they work and how they deal with people. If you have an ESTJ in your life, chances are you are overwhelmed by the level of focus and drive that they have in all parts of their life.

12 INTP: Ravenclaw/Slytherin

The average INTP would probably find themselves in the houses of either Ravenclaw or Slytherin thanks to their Ravenclaw Primary and Slytherin Secondary. We're going to call them Slytherclaws along with their Slytherin/Ravenclaw counterparts because Ravenrin just doesn't sound as good of a hybrid house name. INTPs are logical to a fault and have their set belief system and core values that have been developed throughout their lives, which is where their Ravenclaw comes in. As for their Slytherin, INTPs are very flexible in their thinking and can adapt to most situations, going so far as to appear like different people in any given situation. They're particularly great at solving problems that are in their wheelhouse, but with their brain and adaptability. INTPs can accomplish just about everything.

11 ENTP: Slytherin/Gryffindor

The average ENTP would find their home in Hogwarts in either Slytherin or Gryffindor thanks to their Slytherin Primary and Gryffindor Secondary. ENTPs can think quickly on their feet and are particularly great at tackling things they've never dealt with before because of their ability to improvise. That's something they'd get from their Gryffindor side, while their Slytherin Primary side is what makes them so great at reading people. Slytherdors are basically the open books of Hogwarts. You will always know what they think about on a given issue, person, or topic because they will let you know. If you call an ENTP or a Slytherdor your friend, know that they will be there for you no matter what, and they expect that same type of loyalty from you. ENTPs are also people who hate doing things the same way every time, which is something Slytherdors empathize with because they feel the same.

10 INTJ: Slytherin/Slytherin

INTJs are the epitome of pure Slytherin. The average INTJ has an original mind, and while they don't care for too much socialization, they have an innate understanding of what makes people tick. However, unlike the hardworking Hufflepuff or the analytical Ravenclaw, pure Slytherin types are extremely adaptable and can work around basically any situation. But, they are as exacting and perfectionist as they are adaptable: they want to be the best at whatever it is they're doing, especially if it's something they're passionate about. As for how INTJs deal with people, they don't necessarily go out of their way to be a social butterfly, but the people in their circle mean everything to them. They are some of the most loyal people you'll ever meet, just like a Slytherin.

9 ENTJ: Ravenclaw/Ravenclaw

via Reddit

ENTJs might not seem like the type to be pure Ravenclaw, but you couldn't be more wrong. ENTJs are the type of people who will build a system of morals and values for themselves, testing that system for hypocrisy and weirdness that they don't need. They then discard what they don't need and acquire new things that they can live by. That's their Ravenclaw Primary side talking. As for their Secondary, ENTJs love planning for the long term and learning new things that they can use later, even if the thing they learned is a little ridiculous. Their favorite thing is setting a goal, then working hard to meet it using their vast skill set that they've acquired over the years. They're also unyielding when it comes to presenting their ideas. All of these things are personality traits that belong squarely in Ravenclaw.

8 ISFP: Gryffindor/Ravenclaw

The average ISFP is a Gryffinclaw, through and through. Gryffinclaws are different from Ravendors (ISTPs) in a lot of ways, even though you might assume they're the same. Instead of thinking analytically and taking apart their gut feelings only to barge in and do what needs doing when it's time to, a Gryffinclaw will go with their gut most of the time. But they'll do it in a quieter way. Gryffindor Primaries do things because they truly believe it's the right thing to do, not because they feel obligated or because someone is telling them to. However, for the ISFP, their Ravenclaw Secondary allows them to carry out what they think is the right thing by using their brains. Hermione Granger is a great example of a Gryffindor/Ravenclaw, which is why she almost Hatstalled in the books!

7 ESFP: Slytherin/Hufflepuff

ESFPs are some of the most outgoing, socially adept people you'll ever meet thanks to their Slytherin Primaries and Hufflepuff Secondaries. These people are by far the most charismatic, especially when it comes to working with people to make a shared goal happen. ESFPs have the unique ability to make deep connections with people that they're loyal to without letting that loyalty mess with their decision making. They're pretty flexible and spontaneous because that's how their Hufflepuff Secondary happens to work, and that's the part of them that gets people to warm up to them so fast. As for their Slytherin Primary, ESFPs are extremely loyal people who are equal parts protective over those they love and objective about most situations, which can be a pretty brave thing to be these days. A lot of fictional characters with a good deal of social finesse tend to be Slytherpuffs.

6 ISFJ: Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff

ISFJ is a straight up Hufflepuff in both their Primary and Secondary houses. These are the people who will be most comfortable with hard work and most unafraid of toil. The average ISFJ is a person who's going to be loyal to a fault and be really considerate to the feelings of other people. They're going to remember the little things about a person and use that information later on, making them particularly great gift-givers. Aside from their adeptness with people, ISFJs, much like most Hufflepuffs, know the value of setting themselves to one goal and working at it until that goal is achieved. They're not going to make a big deal about it because that's just not them, but they are going to make sure that they and everyone else involved is committed to what they're doing. They're the 'behind the scenes' people who shine best there, and they love that about themselves.

5 ESFJ: Hufflepuff/Slytherin

ESFJs are people who believe in harmony and fitting in with a community. Even if they don't show their warm hearts all that often, those warm hearts definitely exist and influence a lot of the ESFJ's decision making. This is pretty common for the Hufflerin. While they're not quite as charismatic as their Slytherpuff counterparts, they are people who communicate well with others and can adapt to different situations easily. That's their Slytherin side talking that makes them adapt to different situations and compels the ESFJ to follow through on even the smallest things. ESFJs are some of the most loyal people you'll ever meet, not just to those they care about but to people as a whole, which is their Hufflepuff side talking. More than anything, the ESFJ wants to be appreciated for who they are, which is what the Hufflerin wants more than anything.

4 INFJ: Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff

INFJs are people who seek meaning in their lives, which is something that Ravenclaw Primaries make a major priority in their lives. Unlike Gryffindors, who go by their gut instincts a lot of the time, Ravenclaws make it a point to second-guess their gut instincts, or at least figure out why their gut is making them lean towards a certain decision. They need to find the hidden connections of things and have a vision for their lives, or at least the foreseeable future. As for their Hufflepuff Secondary side, while INTJs are not the most social people in the bunch, they definitely care about people and want to understand them. These are people with the Ravenclaw's thirst for learning and the Hufflepuff's work ethic, making them almost terrifyingly effective when it comes to carrying out their dreams.

3 ENFJ: Gryffindor/Gryffindor

via Odyssey

The ENFJ is about as Gryffindor as they come; so much so that it's both their Primary and Secondary house. The ENFJ is a natural leader who is motivated by doing the right thing above all else: they feel responsible for those that they care about not because they care about them, but because caring is the right thing to do. That's their Gryffindor Primary talking. ENFJs are really empathetic and kind, and the best of them are pretty responsible as well, which is basically the Gryffindor motto. ENFJs see potential in everyone, which is a really admirable trait that Gryffindors have in spades. More importantly, Gryffindors are inspiring leaders and know how to get things done with a group of people. That's their Gryffindor Secondary talking. While ENFJs can be bold and brash, they're not Gryffindors because of that, they're Gryffindors because of their ability to inspire others.

2 INFP: Hufflepuff/Gryffindor

The average INFP will find themselves gravitating towards either Hufflepuff or Gryffindor because of their Hufflepuff Primary and their Gryffindor Secondary. Huffledors tend to be incredibly idealistic and loyal not to specific people but to their community as a whole, which is something Hufflepuffs really relate to on a lot of levels. On top of that, Huffledors hate hypocrisy and INFPs tend to be some of the most honest people you'll ever meet in your life, only lying when there's no other choice. On top of that, INFPs are deeply inspiring people thanks to their Gryffindor Secondary, making them some of the best leaders you'll ever meet. They're incredibly mindful of people even if they don't necessarily love being the center of attention, and they'll show that by being decisive and flexible unless their core values are being infringed upon.

1 ENFP: Gryffindor/Hufflepuff

ENFPs probably gravitate towards Gryffindor or Hufflepuff, much like their introverted counterparts (INFPs). However, ENFPs tend to be Gryffindor Primaries and Hufflepuff Secondaries rather than the other way around. For the average ENFP (of which I am one — just saying), life is full of possibilities. These are people who tend to go by their gut when it comes to figuring out the right thing to do: even if they tend to seek the advice of their many friends and loved ones, they'll still tend to go with what feels right deep down even if no on else agrees. That's their Gryffindor Primary side talking, and it's part of their spontaneous side. As for their Hufflepuff Secondary, it mirrors the ENFP's unique ability to connect with people, making them some of the most supportive people you'll ever meet. Additionally, ENFPs tend to be really creative and imaginative, which are both traits that apply to the Gryffinpuff.
