Knowing Harry, Knowing Yourself: Discover Your “Potter” Personality

Knowing Harry, Knowing Yourself: Discover Your “Potter” Personality

I don’t know about you, but I find the more I reread and learn about Harry, the wizarding world, and the other characters in it, the more I learn about myself. For instance, when I read about the qualities of the four houses, I think, “Which would I be in? What does that say about me?” Or when I read as Harry and the others discover their Patronuses, I think, “What would my Patronus be? What does that tell me about myself?”  Or “Which type of wand would choose me?”

The great news is that we can discover our house on Pottermore and find out what our wand would be made of. These are a great start, but some fans have come up with more amazing quizzes for us to discover our personalities Potter style. Who needs a stuffy personality test? Let’s find out what our Potter personalities are!

Below are a list of the Potter quizzes I’ve found to be the most fun and valuable. Take each one. Record your answer. And post it below with your take on what they say about you. Ready? Go!

1. Your wand (Create a Pottermore account, if you don’t have one, and go through the steps to discover your wand’s characteristics).

2. Your house (The best quiz is straight from Pottermore).

3. Your Patronus

4. Which Harry Potter character are you? 

5. Use this assessment to further discover your character personality type based on Myers-Briggs.

Have fun, and let us know what you discover!
