ENTP 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

Sometimes it can be so easy to look at two different fictional characters and think that they must have the same Myers-Briggs personality type, and at other types it takes some time to reconcile the fact that two characters do have the same personality type.

I think that the reason for this is that when we read about Myers-Briggs personality types online it often can seem as though there is just a single way for each type to act. Which I believe accounts for many people’s looking at Myers-Briggs personality types as unhelpful.

Today I want to share with you how ENTPs each be different from each other. I’ll be sharing four different variations using the four different Hogwarts houses. These four are just a very few of the different variations that could take place in this type.

So, I hope that this will be helpful for you!

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.

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

An ENTP in Hufflepuff would be rare, and I can definitely see them upsetting the other Hufflepuffs, not because they want to be mean they just are debating them, and taking a side that the other person would disagree with.

They would be honest and blunt, but they would really be kind people.

They have quite a few friends and are quite well liked.

They might play Quidditch, probably as a Chaser.

Schoolwork would be something that they would do, even though they would be able to name five better things that they could be doing with their time without thinking. However, they do like to learn, they just want it to be interesting, hands-on, and helpful.

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

This ENTP is always ready to learn something new whether it be in a classroom or by themself or by arguing with one of their friends.

They have quite a few friends who love learning new things just as much as they do. People who are outside of the friend-group sometimes wonder how these people are friends considering the amount of arguing that goes on.

The ENTP enjoys Quidditch, but will sometimes come up with new rules that would make more sense in their opinion. Or will stop in the middle of a game to start a discussion of how broomsticks were discovered or something like that.

They love to learn, but they will often do this by arguing with their teachers which often means that they are not the teacher’s favorite person. They get their homework done, although they often think that it is fairly useless.

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

This ENTP is a devil’s advocate, a risk taker, and absolutely charming.

Despite the fact that they will argue about anything with anyone at any time, they have quite a few friends and admirers. There is something about them that makes people want to be with them, and they know that quite well and take full advantage of it.

They either love or hate Quidditch, I’m not sure which, but they would be ones that would be at one of these two extremes.

For them schoolwork is just a means to an end. They want to be great, and good grades will help them on their way to greatness.

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

This ENTP is charismatic and friendly, but they will still argue whenever they get the chance. For them arguing, or debating, is an enjoyable pastime that allows them to learn new things.

They enjoy trying new things, and are always looking for new adventures.

They have quite a few friends, but only a few that they are really close to. They don’t really care which House they are from as long as they are interesting.

Again I am not quite sure what they think about Quidditch, but I think that most of the time they are at least vaguely interested in it. And some of them would definitely play Quidditch.

They enjoy learning, but often feel as though they are not tested to the full extent of their abilities.


So, that is how I think that an ENTP might act in each of the different Hogwarts Houses. I’d love to hear if you have any other suggestions, or anything to add, to my descriptions of how the ENTP might act.

  1. Thanks for your post. So interesting. I took the test and I am “The Protagonist” (ENFJ-A).
    I find that this pretty much does sum up my personality. And I can see how you can develop characters by using these different personality types to achieve your desired results.

    Looking forward to more of your wisdom!

    • I’m an INFJ (The Advocate), so it is cool that we have such similar Myers-Briggs personality types.
      Myers-Briggs I’ve found to be very helpful for characters and getting to know people. I mainly use it for developing characters though.
