I'm the kind of person who skips to the conversation when reading a book.

Upon Learning That I Was Draco Malfoy

Last week a Harry Potter chart was making the rounds on Facebook.

“Who are you?” it boldly asked, somewhat enticingly.

Then a friend sent me the same one. “I just saw this link today, and it made me laugh to see where you landed,” she said.  “At least you weren’t Voldemort.”

I should have known not to look. Draco Malfoy.  Ugh.  I’m Draco Malfoy.

I told Deirdre about it, and she said, “At least you weren’t Umbridge.”  It was not comforting.

Being an INTJ is something I wrestle with and have trouble fully accepting.  Sometimes, I shake an angry fist at God, and ask Him, “Why INTJ?”

I don’t like being an INTJ.  Can you tell?

Someone pointed out that as we age, the opposite qualities deepen.  I have taken the test a number of times since I was in my 20s without a change in the final result.  However, my J is softening to almost a P. Hermione I could live with.

The Daily Prompt asked today: If you were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would you choose?  That was easy for me to answer.

I would give up Common Sense. Enough of these logical paths. I would lose my analytical, structured way of thinking.

And Nonsense?  Come on in and take over! I would be wildly creative in ways no one would even dream. I would be Hagrid. I would hatch dragons and hippogriffs. I would be jolly.

From the Strategist to the Artist: that’s what I would change.

How about you?  Which Harry Potter character are you? What would you change?

    I’d say I’m Hermoine and I’d relax my organised nature (though sometimes it is necessary). I’d got with the flow more and I’d go join you as Hagrid and nurture your fabulous magical creatures 😉

      Yes, organization is probably necessary. Can you imagine how crazy a world of all Hagrids would be? Chaotic — but a whole lot of fun!

        A world of Hagrids would be mind boggling fun 😉

    I have neither read the Harry Potter books, nor even bothered with the movies so I don’t know any of the characters; however I cannot pass up a personally quiz … THAT’s who I am!

      I read the books — it was back in the days when I was trying to read everything my children were reading — and loved them. I saw the first movie, and loved it not so much. In fact, I haven’t want to go to a Harry Potter movie since.

    I am Ron Weasley-ENFP. Thanks for posting this! It was fun to do a personality test and apply it to Harry Potter characters. =) It was so much fun!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. Ron Weasley is one of my favorite characters.

    I can see why you might not like that your results identified you with Draco…but I don’t think it is entirely a bad thing. Draco is incredibly smart, gifted, ambitious, and very crafty. I know that most people don’t usually look upon “craftiness” or “cunning” as a good thing…but it means that you think things through and you don’t give up. I think that is a good thing.

    But then again…I’m an ISTJ…Snape…so of course I would see a fellow Slytherin, and someone who carefully thinks things through in a creative way, as a friend.

      Thanks for commenting, Aspen! There’s just this part of me that wishes I was a harmless little Hufflepuff…

        I completely understand!

        Sometimes I wish the same myself.

    I think I identify with Professor Lupin. I am just on book 5 though, so don’t spoil anything please. Nice post!

      I would never dream of spoiling anything for anybody! 😉

    Dont let a personality test define you. I’m an INTJ too and I found myself relating to almost everything, but I address the negative parts and attempt to change 🙂

    I didn’t know I would get Draco, but I’m glad I did. Draco is actually my fav character.
