ENTJ 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

There are sixteen different Myers-Briggs Personality types, and four different Hogwarts houses which means that a popular way to figure out what Myers-Briggs type would be in which house. This means that each house gets four personality types.

However things don’t quite work out that neatly in real life.

There are too many factors to consider. If I was going by how they sort the Myers-Briggs types, I would be in Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. In real though I’m probably a Ravenclaw or possibly a Gryffindor.

So, today I want to talk about how ENTJs would act in each of the Hogwarts houses. Obviously, some of the houses will fit them better than others, but an ENTJ has the potential to be in every single one of the houses.

If you want a refresher on how ENTJs tend to act I wrote this post on them earlier this year.

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.

I think that that covers everything, so now we can actually look at how the ENTJ would act in the different Hogwarts houses!

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

This is the least likely house for an ENTJ. They tend to have a slightly more difficult time than some of the other types, especially Fs, processing emotions. I feel Hufflepuffs are usually good with emotions.

However, let’s look a bit more about how an ENTJ might act in Hufflepuff.

ENTJs are very determined; they want to get stuff done and done right. Hufflepuffs are the same.

An ENTJ as a Hufflepuff would be a leader. They might be the captain of the Quidditch team, or they might lead a club. They tend to be good at seeing the skills of others, and that would help them to make the team the very best that it can be.

They would have goals many of them to help people, and they would have a plan on how to accomplish those goals.

They would be very good at their schoolwork, and get all of their homework done with time to spare. If one of the other Hufflepuffs needed help with their schoolwork the ENTJ is someone that they would definitely consider going to for help.

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 this house the ENTJ would be one of the leaders. When one was first sorted into this house it might almost seem like the ENTJ is in charge of just about everything, that would not be true, of course, but it might be pretty close.

They would be close to the top in all of their classes. Although, they would prefer to be the top.

They would do well with school. And often be ahead of where they are supposed to be.

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

As a Slytherin the ENTJ would want to be the very best that they can be.

They are a leader among the Slytherins. Good at figuring out what people are good at. Good at keeping at the top.

Schoolwork in and of itself does not really interest the ENTJ, but they know that in order to achieve their goals they are going to need to know this stuff. So, they work hard on their schoolwork.

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

ENTJs work well in this house.

They are leaders. They tend to be well liked by the other Gryffindors, but they don’t get on as well with the Slytherins.

They tend to be in quite a few clubs, and often the Quidditch team as well.

Schoolwork is important, but only because it will be useful to know these things.


So, that is kind of how I think that an ENTJ would act in each of the Hogwarts houses. If you have any more ideas about how the ENTJ might act, I’d love to hear about it!

One thought on “ENTJ At Hogwarts

  1. That was nice to read.
    Just wanted to mention I’m an ENTJ and I’m a ravenclaw. You know, being a virgo ENTJ makes me a ravenclaw. My best friend is an ENTJ,too. But he is probably a griffindor or a slytherin.
