Within the Harry Potter fandom, most people figure out one’s personality traits by asking what Hogwarts House they would be sorted into. Are you warm-hearted and a team player like a true Gryffindor or cunning and ambitious like a true Slytherin?
Another tell-all is to ask who someone’s favorite character is, as this really can say a lot about a person. Each character has their own distinct personality, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. While some characters are more developed than others, most Harry Potter fans have their favorite character that they feel they identify most with. If you have ever wondered what your favorite character says about you, whether it be Hermione or Snape, the answer is here. Check out what your favorite character in the Harry Potter series says about you.
10 Harry Potter
Harry’s storyline is much more traumatic than the writing lets on. Harry watched his parents die when he was just a baby, he grew up neglected by his guardians, he has faced death on numerous occasions, and has lost many other loved ones along the way. Despite all of this, he treasures and prioritizes his friendships above all else.
If Harry is your favorite character, you are an empathetic person who craves action. You are also the type of person who is good to their core, but knows how to break the rules. You have figured out how to do the right amount of wrong and you cherish your friendships and family above all else.
9 Ron Weasley
Ron is a courageous wizard who, despite his own successes, often is outshined by his family members and friends. Although there are moments where his insecurities come to the forefront, he is an incredible friend, a caring son, and a loving brother. He can definitely be immature, but that’s just because he is a teenage boy. You can’t change facts!
If Ron is your favorite character, you love an underdog and you definitely have a big group of friends. Your heart is always in the right place, and you love to keep your friends’ spirits up when life gets them down. You like to work hard and play hard.
8 Severus Snape
Snape is a controversial character. Some people love him, some people hate him. Despite his actions against Harry throughout the series, at the end of the series, fans discover that he has truly been on the right side of his double-agent status. With the help of his memories, Harry unlocks the key to killing Voldemort.
If Snape is your favorite character, you are a complex person who sees the best in people. You believe people can change and deserve second chances. You take people at their word, but you also live for drama and love to stir the pot. And your favorite color is probably black.
7 Hermione Granger
Hermione is as talented as she is hard working. Her intelligence is unmatched and she has great friends and doesn’t care what others think. Without Hermione, and Ron for that matter, Harry simply would not have defeated Voldemort.
If Hermione is your favorite character, you are definitely very smart and driven. You have a tight-knit friend group and your confidence is resounding, due to your general wit. You are a rule follower, but when you break a rule, you do it with conviction.
6 Ginny Weasley
Ginny is the most underrated character in the series. There are many facts about her that are left out of the films, and the truth of the matter is that Ginny is one of the best witches of her grade. She casts a mean Bat-Bogey Hex, she dates cool people, including Harry Potter and Dean Thomas, and she is a Chaser on the Quidditch team.
If Ginny is your favorite character, you are probably a feminist and all about girl power. You are confident, go with the flow, and assertive when you need to be. You also are one of those people that everyone wants to be friends with because you are accepting and walk to the beat of your own drum.
5 Draco Malfoy
Draco Malfoy was dealt some bad cards in his life. He was born to Death Eater parents, Narcissa and Lucius Malfoy. In his sixth year at Hogwarts, Voldemort gave him a job to kill Dumbledore. It was unfair and cruel, and Draco feared for his life before he even came of age. That being said, Draco is not kind, but he is complex, and therefore some people find sympathy in his redeeming characteristics.
If Draco is your favorite character, you see the best in people, but once you have your eyes on the prize, you will stop at nothing to succeed.
4 Fred And George Weasley
Fred and George were the coolest kids at Hogwarts. Not only were they popular, they were hilarious. They really made a name for themselves and were the only students to befriend Peeves the Poltergeist. They even dropped out of school to become business owners of a joke shop in Diagon Alley.
If Fred and George are your favorite characters, you are definitely close to your siblings. You have probably been told that you should do stand-up comedy before, and you are funny and light up rooms when you enter them.
3 Albus Dumbledore
Dumbledore is the headmaster of Hogwarts, but he is so much more than that. He is the owner of the most powerful wand in the world and earned it by dueling one of the darkest wizards of all time, who also happened to be his ex-best friend. Dumbledore’s general vibe is one of organized chaos – he knows when to be real and knows when to be lighthearted.
If Dumbledore is your favorite character, you are wise beyond your years. You probably have a good balance between seriousness and silliness. You prioritize love over everything else and are an open-minded person who rolls well with change.
2 Luna Lovegood
Luna Lovegood is the type of girl who, despite her positive and whimsical attitude, has experienced much more than one would think. Her mother died in front of her when she was a child. Her father, Xenophilius, is the publisher and editor of the Quibbler magazine, the alternative voice in the Wizarding World, and although she can come off as “looney,” that’s due to her honesty and ability to state things exactly as they are.
If Luna is your favorite character, you are probably the type of person who loves to wear crazy costumes whenever possible. You hold your friends in the highest regard and see things much more clearly than it may always seem.
1 Sirius Black
Sirius Black is the ultimate good bad boy. Back in his Hogwarts days, he was a troublemaker who never actually made too much trouble. Sirius stood by his friends until his last breath. He was a key member of the Order of the Phoenix, the rebel group who fought Voldemort and helped in his ultimate downfall.
If Sirius is your favorite character, all eyes turn to you when you enter a room. You are passionate about your beliefs and hate feeling out of control when you can’t stand up for what you believe in. You are easy to love and are surrounded by love, wherever you go.
