This quirky comedy about a large and dysfunctional yet loving family provides viewers with an array of unique characters, each with their own goals, values, and takes on life. It makes complete sense that this show has captured the hearts of fans over 10 seasons. Such a diverse cast made it particularly intriguing to look into each Modern Family character's Myers-Briggs® Personality Type. Since that task has been completed, what better way to further explore these interesting personalities than combine them with the much-loved fandom of Harry Potter, where we can sort them into the perfect Hogwarts houses to suit their characters?
10 Jay Pritchett - Ravenclaw
Working so many years to grow his closet business as well as working hard to support his family, Jay is responsible, serious and dedicated; a clear indicator of his ISTJ personality. This puts him at a crossroads for between becoming a Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw student. While he loves his family and cares deeply for them as a Hufflepuff might, he prefers to have his own space and work on his hobbies in an organized, systematic fashion that is expected of a Ravenclaw.
9 Claire Dunphy - Slytherin
Claire is an organized and assertive maternal figure who takes the reigns as leader of her household without hesitation. She loves taking charge in any given situation and never shows signs of wanting to slow down and rest. For this reason, she is an ESTJ. Because of this, she shows signs of being suitable for both Ravenclaw and Slytherin. However, her drive to see out her vision and do so by sticking to her guns and not compromising the rules she lives by makes her just a tad more ideal to become a Slytherin student.
8 Manny Delgado - Gryffindor
An expressive, poetic, and caring son, cousin, and friend, Manny is incredibly supportive of his family and is also a big dreamer with an open mind. He also showed the unexpected trait of being able to empathize with older family members like Claire from a young age. This puts him in the ENFP category. With his positive outlook on life and his love for his family members, he leans towards both Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. However, his tendency to go out on a limb and do what feels right in his heart no matter what shows his bravery, thus making him the ideal candidate for Gryffindor house.
7 Cameron Tucker - Hufflepuff
A true people's person, Cam is flamboyant, bubbly and charming. He loves being constantly surrounded by people and being the center of attention. He is also incredibly outgoing and loves to break routine, thus showing off his true ESFP personality. He is a mix between Slytherin and Hufflepuff due to his top social skills, however, his warmth towards others and the way in which he cares for his family in the most selfless way possible perfectly emulates the warmth of a Hufflepuff.
6 Luke Dunphy - Hufflepuff
While Luke sometimes comes across as naive, he certainly makes up for not being the sharpest crayon in the box with his keen sense of humor, outgoing personality, and hilarious one-liners. His people-orientated approach and constant enthusiasm show off his ESFJ personality. Most ESFJs are split between going to Hufflepuff and Slytherin house. Yet, with his undivided loyalty to his family and the way in which he uses his warm heart to harmonize with others, he is the perfect candidate for Hufflepuff house.
5 Gloria Delgado - Slytherin
Gloria is incredibly enthusiastic, caring, and adaptable. She is also roaring with passion and incredibly expressive. Such characteristics have contributed to Gloria being the life of the party and perfectly exhibit her ESFP personality. Gloria is someone who could fit into both Slytherin and Hufflepuff. Her charisma and ability to get other people invested in her goals mean that she leans a little more towards Slytherin house.
4 Mitch Pritchett - Ravenclaw
A down to earth and reserved character, Mitch cherishes his alone time and often prefers to stay away from big crowds of people. He is driven and career-orientated, but remains grounded no matter the magnitude of his goals. His placid nature accurately depicts his ISTP personality. ISTPs are normally split between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw due to their ability to act quickly in order to help others but also do so discreetly. In the case of Mitch, his intellect and aptitude in the legal field make him more of a Ravenclaw student.
3 Phil Dunphy - Gryffindor
A big optimist who is always jovial, Phil brings humor and happiness to every situation. With his good intentions, he always seeks to help others out, even if his assistance does not always remedy the situation. These characteristics, along with his curiosity, show off his INFP personality. This puts Phil in contention for being either a Gryffindor or Hufflepuff student. Because of his ability to inspire his children and wife through his pep talks as well as his brutal honesty and inability to lie, Phil is a perfect candidate for Gryffindor house.
2 Haley Dunphy - Slytherin
While she often seems to lose the plot, Haley still makes up for her lack of comprehension by being the life of the party and always earning popularity wherever she goes. With her outspokenness and outgoing nature, she is a typical ESFP. This puts her at a crossroads between Slytherin and Hufflepuff, and, due to her ability to earn other people's loyalty and manipulate them into helping her achieve her goals, Slytherin seems like the right fit.
1 Alex Dunphy - Ravenclaw
An intellectual who loves to study, she is by far the smartest member of the family. While oftentimes serious and analytical, she also has a witty, dry sense of humor, all of which point to her ISTJ personality. Someone like Alex can fit into either Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw due to her high regard for hard work. However, given Alex's organizational skills and strict dedication to learning, she would be a major asset for Ravenclaw house.
