ISFP At Hogwarts

There lived four wizards of renown,
Whose names are still well known:
Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.
They shared a wish, a hope, a dream,
They hatched a daring plan
To educate young sorcerers
Thus Hogwarts School began.
Now each of these four founders
Formed their own house, for each
Did value different virtues.
-J.K. Rowlings, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

So, here I am back with another Myers-Briggs at Hogwarts. I’m having a lot of fun doing this. I think that it might be my favorite personality related things so far.

Anyways, this week we are going to look into ISFPs at Hogwarts. If you are interested in learning more about ISFPs, here is an post that I wrote earlier about ISFPs in general rather than focusing on a particular part of them.

Also, if you want to find out your Myers-Briggs personality type, this test is very accurate and free. Then if you want to find out your Hogwarts house, here is one that I usually get the same answer on.

And now without further ado, the ISFP at Hogwarts!

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil.
– J.K. Rowlings, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

ISFPs love people and tend to be very kind, loyal, and fun-loving. They would do very well in Hufflepuff.

They would have lots of friends. They would bring a feeling of the unexpected to their friend group because that is just they way that they are.

ISFPs are good with emotions and would be able to help others and themselves with what they were feeling.

They love to learn new things especially how they can use those things to help others. Learning for learning’s sake is not as interesting.

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, 
if you’ve a ready mind, 
Where those of wit and learning, 
Will always find their kind.
– J.K. Rowlings, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

In Ravenclaw the ISFP would be independent and artistic.

They would have lots of friends who tend to come to them for advice. Though the ISFP might not be quite sure why they are getting ask for advice so much.

The ISFP would enjoy learning and exploring new things. They would enjoy finding ways of applying what they learned to their lives. The tests and theoretical part of the learning they might not enjoy quite as much.

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
These cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.
– J.K. Rowlings, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

An ISFP in Slytherin is probably the least likely house for this friendly, yet independent, personality type to find themselves. However, it is not impossible.

They are not traditional. They are independent. The ISFP will not mind upsetting the status quo.

They would rather stay in the background, but at the same time they don’t mind taking a risk and trying something new.

This ISFP probably has friends all over, especially in unexpected places.

For them their studies are only important as they pertain to real life.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry,
Set Gryffindors apart
– J.K. Rowlings, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The ISFP is sometimes called the Adventurer, so this House makes a lot of sense for them.

They tend to be independent people. They don’t like being boxed in, so the fact that they have to be sorted into a House might not be their favorite. They have friends from all of the Houses (including Slytherin). Despite being an introvert they tend to act fairly extroverted most of the time.

The ISFP is willing to take risks. They want to have adventures. They want to explore new things.

They do fairly well in their classes, especially when they are interested in it, but they would rather be doing other things.


Myers-Briggs personality types have become a rather important part of modern reading culture. Everyone wants to know what which characters have their personalities and so forth. So in writing these posts, I guess I am trying to add my own contribution to all of the Myers-Briggs related things.

I hope that this post has helped you to understand ISFPs a bit better and how they might act if they were students at Hogwarts. Also, if you have anything to add about how an ISFP would act in any of the Houses, I would love to hear about that in the comments!
