ESTJs are known for their endless ambition. Nothing will stop an ESTJ from fighting for a cause that they are passionate about, and for the most part, ESTJs are fearless individuals. These traits make them perfectly fit for the house of Slytherin.

While both Slytherins and ESTJs sometimes receive a reputation for being strict and authoritative, once you get to know these people, you realize that there is so much more to them than the hard shell they reveal on the outside. (Think Minerva McGonagall, a classic ESTJ.)


Like the ESTJ, the ISTJ seems perfectly matched with the house of Slytherin. This is because ISTJs are often extremely honest and direct with their peers in a way that is meant to be helpful, yet can often come across as crude to those who favor politeness over authenticity.

One of the most beloved Slytherins of all is an ISTJ: Severus Snape. He is the perfect example of an ISTJ who is hard on the outside, yet all soft and lovey-dovey on the inside. Doesn't that just make you want to give your ISTJ friends a big ol' hug?


ENTPs are so classicly Gryffindor it hurts. ENTPs are known for their bravery and outspoken nature (which can often get them in trouble). Yet most people find ENTPs to be natural charmers due to their comical auras and fearless personas.

Fred and George Weasley are classic examples of the average ENTP, and the fact that there's two of them rather than one makes it all the more fun! Who else but ENTPs would come up with a joke shop in the middle of a war?


ESTPs are some of the bravest individuals, which makes them perfect for the house of Gryffindor. Extremely passionate about their beliefs, ESTPs have no shame when it comes to expressing their opinions, and they couldn't care less about how others might perceive their energetic nature.

Gryffindors along with ESTPs are often described as loud individuals who will fight like a lion for what they believe in. ESTPs are usually very hands-on and prefer to be active, making them likely to kill it on the Quidditch team. Ginny Weasley is an ESTP, and she's one of the best Quidditch players of all.


ESFPs are charismatic individuals who are often described as social butterflies due to their incredible ease when it comes to making copious amounts of friendships. Hufflepuffs are known for being people-oriented because one of their main traits is loyalty.

Socially, the ESFPs and Hufflepuffs thrive, making them the people you'd love to be best friends with. While most people at Hogwarts tend to give off a rather cold aura, it is always refreshing to come across a warm ESFP/Hufflepuff to brighten your day.


INTPs seem perfectly fit for the Ravenclaw House because of their individuality and high intellect. The INTP is usually known for their wide range of knowledge when it comes to every subject, making them greatly cherished by professors.

Often described as "brainiacs," what house would be better suited for the INTP than the house of the brilliant-minded? Ravenclaws are described as "academically-minded" and they have a knack for learning as much as they possibly can at any given moment.


INFPs are known for their rich imaginations and endless creativity. They are often bookish in nature and love to get lost in the works of an excellent novel. Sounds like the perfect match for the House of Ravenclaw!

One of the most popular examples of an INFP in literature is Luna Lovegood who is, of course, a Ravenclaw. Luna is known for her dreamy nature which is very common in INFPs, who often live in their own worlds because the world around them is less interesting than the universe they have created inside their head. Who other than the INFP would come up with the idea of "nargles"?


ISFPs are known for being extremely kind and warm-hearted. Many people gravitate towards ISFPs because their quiet yet giving nature makes them excellent listeners and thus brilliant friends. Who wouldn't want an ISFP/Hufflepuff in their life to confide in?

With ISFPs/Hufflepuffs, you know you can trust them to keep all of your deepest darkest secrets without any form of judgment. Perfectly described by the Sorting Hat, the ISFP/Hufflepuff combo is "just," "loyal," "true," and "unafraid to toil."


ENFPs are known for their outgoing, quirky nature, separating them from all the other types. The ENFP is often very giving, making them an excellent friend to have.

They are outrageously brave and will stick up for what they believe in regardless of the consequences. An ENFP at Hogwarts would most likely roll their eyes right in Snape's face, despising his step-by-step ways that are devoid of creativity and excitement.


Like the ESFP, ESFJs are known for being social butterflies and have no trouble befriending everyone. ESFJs have the ability to see good traits in every single person, and sometimes their blind trust for all those around them can cause them to be taken advantage of.

Often described as a "mother hen," ESFJs are constantly looking out for their friends, doing whatever they can to make sure that everyone around them is comfortable and satisfied.


Of course, the ENTJ is the best match for the House of Slytherin. The ENTJ is known for saying exactly what they're thinking, even if what they are thinking might come across as harsh. ENTJs are wildly determined to a nearly terrifying degree (Voldemort), making them some of the most ambitious folks you will ever stumble upon.

While Voldemort is an example of an (extremely) unhealthy ENTJ, Mad-Eye Moody brilliantly represents the kind of ENTJ we all crave to have in our lives.


ENFJs are praised for their effortless leadership skills, making them excellent examples of those who reside in Gryffindor. ENFJs, as well as Gryffindors, aren't afraid to express how they truly feel about any given situation.

With ENFJs, there's no time to be anything but honest and authentic, so you know you can always trust an ENFJ to be truthful with you in a way that's productive and considerate. With the ENFJ you can always feel safe and cared for, which is exactly what Albus Dumbledore (a classic ENFJ) provides.


ISTPs are known for their bravery and natural charm, making them highly intriguing individuals. Harry Potter himself is the classic example of an ISTP, and of course, he is a Gryffindor. ISTPs are known for being extremely physical beings, making them perfectly set for the Quidditch pitch.

Out of all the personality types, ISTPs seem most likely to be able to fight off the bad guy with a sword (think Arya Stark of Game of Thrones). Who better than an ISTP to defeat Lord Voldemort once and for all?


ISFJs are some of the nicest people you will ever meet, making them wonderful examples of the Hufflepuff House. They are giving and loyal beings who will never speak ill of anyone simply because they do not possess a mean bone in their bodies.

Because of their willingness to see the good in everyone, they find it easy to make strong friendships. Cedric Diggory is often described as an ISFJ because of his overwhelming warmth, traditional values, and effortless ability to be well-liked by everyone he comes across.


INFJs are known for their warmth and wisdom. Constantly wanting to learn new things, this select group of individuals will study everything from the people around them to each book in the library (even in the restricted section). Oftentimes their wisdom is so powerful it can be described as rather intimidating.

Yet, when it comes down to it, INFJs are wildly friendly and caring, making them wonderful people to have in your life. What better house than Ravenclaw for the all-knowing INFJ?


INTJs are often brilliant thinkers who have no trouble getting others to follow their lead. They stand tall with their head held high and are extremely stubborn in their beliefs. When an INTJ has an opinion on something, their mind will not change unless they are presented with stone-cold facts.

Draco Malfoy is an INTJ in the house of Slytherin, and despite his mishaps, you can't deny his cleverness and his ability to sway people one way or another on whatever matter he chooses.
