Okay so I don’t know if I’m just slow or what, but I JUST realized something about this scene that I never picked up before.

Yen Sid smiles here.

It’s really easy to miss, and I always thought Mickey was just smiling up at him here to be like “I’m cute, right? You can’t be mad at me, right?” But no, it’s like Yen Sid realizes and appreciates this Mickey is eager and curious, and him doing stupid stuff like this is like that of any growing child and having those traits is something to be valued. And yet he does give him a pop to the backside on the way out. So then this scene ends on both a note of “Yeah, we’re still cool,” and “Don’t. DO THAT. Again.”

It just means so much to me especially when you consider how Yen Sid was supposed to represent Walt and the studio’s been focusing on that so much more recently especially in the parks like in Mickey & the Magical Map and then you start seeing The Sorcerer’s Apprentice as one of Mickey’s misadventures growing up before Walt passed on the torch to him 26 years later and uuuuugh excuse me I gotta go cry now.

@devilangel657 mentioned you in a post “*inspired by that Obi Wan’s false sense of superiority post* What we…”
@forcearama

What if Yoda just has all the blackmail… Aka photos of every jedis childhood or growing up. He loves the creche and is there a lot so … He has photos of every Jedi that passed through the creche and is going over them to the documentary.

*tiny sob* Oh my God this is actually precious though?? Like he’s sort of embarrassing them but he’s also just like a secretly SUPER PROUD GRANDPA LOOK AT HOW CUTE ALL HIS KIDS ARE AND NOW THEY’RE ALL SUPERHEROES. He doesn’t really know how to do feelings, but now suddenly all this stuff he’s never shared with them is coming out. 

Obi-Wan’s going to die when he realizes that Yoda saved a picture of him from his 6th birthday when he’d lost both his front teeth (”cute, and bright, he was…but a troublemaker, yes, always a troublemaker” Yoda says fondly to the camera) or something and Obi-Wan’s going to have to leave the room because he doesn’t want the show to catch him getting all misty. The fangirl squeeing over Baby-Wan’s photos is audible. It’s a highlight of the season.

The Jedi Order is going to be brought way closer as a result of all of this, because people are going to confess things to the camera that they’ve never told their colleagues to their faces.

…Goddamnit, now I just want this to be what actually happened. THEY ALL COULD HAVE BEEN A HAPPY DYSFUNCTIONAL SOCERER FAMILY.

Hermione Granger INFJ Bamf



There has been much dispute on what Hermione Granger’s mbti is.  Out of all the Potter characters, hers have had the largest variety as to what she could be.  I’ve been re-reading and watching the series, and as I look into everything more I’ve determined that Hermione Jean Granger is an INFJ. While I am an INFJ, this is not me searching for myself within my favorite character. I often actually find it difficult to see an INFJ in many fictional characters. It is the rarest of all types, so it would make sense that it would be rare to find an INFJ character.  There is just so much that Hermione Granger does and so much of who she is that is just INFJ to the core.

To start off I’m going to go more in depth the the actual personality of the INFJ, because if you aren’t familiar a lot of what I will reference to will not make sense.  The INFJ is described as the Protector, they will go to great lengths to protect those whom they care about.  The INFJ also has a great sense to read how others are feeling and understand what someone is thinking often before they know themselves.  The INFJ is also known the be the most empathetic of the personality types, and truly wants to understand what others are going through.  The INFJ also has an extreme sense for what is right and wrong, because of this they are often found taking up causes, even when the cause might not exist.  

So now back to Hermione Granger. For this post I plan on going book/movie from 1-7 and pointing out actions and characteristics that allude to Hermione Granger being an INFJ. At the end I’ll bring whatever that doesn’t fit into a miscellaneous category.  (I’M GONNA PUT FUN PICS IN, BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE A HELLA LOT OF TEXT)

Sorcerer’s Stone

“Are you really?” said Hermione. “I know all about you, of course – I got a few extra books, for background reading, and you’re in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century.”

  • Not that to say that other types are not found reading, but INFJs are not only found rare because their type is rare, but often those with the personality are found hiding behind the pages of a book.
  • Also while INFJs have a very strong sense of who people are, they are also researchers they want to know the truth about the world. They need it to truly know the truth about themselves.

“Do either of you know what house you’ll be in? I’ve been asking around, and I hope I’m in Gryffindor, it sounds by far the best; I hear Dumbledore himself was in it, but I suppose Ravenclaw wouldn’t be too bad.”

  • While many people have said that Hermione’s type would be an ISFJ, because of her desire to learn and her book smarts, however this is one of the first places I find where Hermione distinguishes herself from that though.  She loves knowledge and desires it, but she has a different alignment of priorities. She values bravery and friendship over knowledge.
  • This is not to say that INFJs cannot be Ravenclaws (I’m a Ravenclaw myself), but Hermione knows early on in the series that knowledge is very important, but what is even more important is the knowledge of people.
  • This is something you will see continuously from her throughout the series.

“Hermione Granger was on the edge of her seat and looked desperate to start proving that she wasn’t a dunderhead.”

  • INFJs have an inherent need to prove themselves, this comes from a place of self-doubt.  While it is never spoken of, mostly because the story is not told from Hermione’s point of view I believe that Hermione’s need to show her intelligence comes more from her wanting to prove herself rather than wanting to show off.
  • To add into that self-doubt, she was not born into this world, she constantly needs to prove that she belong in this world she wasn’t born into.

General Hermione trying to keep everyone out of trouble

  • This happens too many times for me to cite all of them, but she in general is looking out for the wellbeing of everyone.  At this point she isn’t even good friends with Harry and Ron, but she still is protecting them over other students.

“Hermione didn’t turn up for the next class and wasn’t seen all afternoon. On their way down to the Great Hall for the Halloween feast, Harry and Ron overheard Parvati Patil telling her friend Lavender that Hermione was crying in the girls’ bathroom and wanted to be left alone.”

  • While INFJs can appear confident they are easily torn down. Criticism from others can rock the INFJ to their core.  Hermione while had been annoying most students for the first part of the year had never heard people talking about her.  To hear Ron say such horrible things to her, caused her to break down and isolate herself. This is a common reaction from the INFJ.

“Ron dropped his wand. Hermione Granger, telling a downright lie to a teacher? "If they hadn’t found me, I’d be dead now. Harry stuck his wand up its nose and Ron knocked it out with its own club. They didn’t have time to come and fetch anyone. It was about to finish me off when they arrived.”

  • The INFJ while they have a great sense of right and wrong, will pick the people they care about over the the truly right thing every time. INFJs do not make friendships that they only anticipate lasting a short time. They play for keeps. This was Hermione deciding that Harry and Ron are her people.  

“Me!” said Hermione. “Books! And cleverness! There are more important things – friendship and bravery and – oh Harry – be careful!”

  • INFJs while they are able to see the good and greatness in others often overlook it within themselves.  Hermione is trying to tell Harry how brilliant he is while all she has is books and cleverness. This whole time however Hermione has been choosing friendship and bravery over books and rules every time.

“Second – to Miss Hermione Granger… for the use of cool logic in the 247 face of fire, I award Gryffindor house fifty points.” Hermione buried her face in her arms; Harry strongly suspected she had burst into tears. Gryffindors up and down the table were beside themselves – they were a hundred points up.

  • Just as INFJs have strong reactions to criticism they have strong reactions to recognition.  

“Hope you have – er – a good holiday,” said Hermione, looking uncertainly after Uncle Vernon, shocked that anyone could be so unpleasant.

  • INFJs have a very idealized viewpoint on the world, they always see the best in people, so it often confuses them when they find truly unpleasant people.

Chamber of Secrets

Continuous Hermione worrying and protecting of Harry and Ron

  • Post-troll Hermione has her people and she is not letting go.  In typical INFJ fashion, she only lets those closest to her get to know her true self and she in turn is the loyalist of all friends.

Hermione’s idealized view of Gilderoy Lockhart

  • More INFJ idealized views of people who will later prove that they did not deserve the faith you put into them.

“A promise is a promise,” Hermione reminded Harry bossily. “You said you’d go to the deathday party.”

  • If you make a promise to an INFJ expect to be held to it.  INFJs take promises very seriously, especially when it has to do with showing up some place. You would not want to be late to a Hermione Granger party, trust me.

“Oh, no, Peeves, don’t tell her what I said, she’ll be really upset,” Hermione whispered frantically. “I didn’t mean it, I don’t mind her — er, hello, Myrtle.”

  • Even though Myrtle is someone that Hermione finds it important that her feelings not be hurt. INFJs typically don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.  This can cause issues because the INFJ will often put others feelings before their own.  

There’s a lot of similar actions from Sorcerer’s Stone that I’m not adding in here, because that would be overkill

Hermione planning actually everything they do in this book omg

  • INFJs strive for perfection and therefore take a lot of planning on to themselves.  Hermione pretty much came up with all the plans, and was still helping Harry and Ron figure shit out when she was petrified for goodness sake.

Hermione spends the more exciting part of this book petrified so there isn’t much more to say on this one folks.

Prisoner of Azkaban

“Harry laughed as he put Hermione’s letter aside and picked up her present. It was very heavy. Knowing Hermione, he was sure it would be a large book full of very difficult spells – but it wasn’t. His heart gave a huge bound as he ripped back the paper and saw a sleek black leather case, with silver words stamped across it, reading Broomstick Servicing Kit. “Wow, Hermione!” Harry whispered, unzipping the case to look inside.”

  • This isn’t a generally known fact about INFJs, but they tend to be the best gift givers.  They will often get you gifts that you could not even think of yourself. They tend to surprise anyone they usually get a gift.

Hermione figuring out that Lupin is a werewolf and knowing him well enough to trust him.

  • This is also one of those defining moments where Hermione chooses people over fact.  She know’s that Lupin is a werewolf, but she keeps his secret because she knows in her heart that he’s a good guy. INFJs can sense when people are good even know when they know the worst side of a person.

Hermione and the Time Turner

  • Hermione like an INFJ wants to have control over everything and do everything to perfection.  By taking all of the subjects she is striving for a level of perfection and again wanting to prove herself to those who wish to tear her down and those who believe in her.

Hermione’s struggle when Trelawney tries to read her

  • Hermione is very uncomfortable with anyone knowing her on that level, and it seems to have scared her when someone read her like the books she loves.  INFJs are known for being too mysterious to understand. This comes from a place where INFJs are just more difficult to understand in general, but it is also an INFJ defense mechanism.  If you don’t let people know you too well they won’t know how best to hurt you.

The Hermione Granger Face Punch

  • There is a concept known as the INFJ door slam where and INFJ completely gives up on you and essentially slams the door on your face forever. While Hermione and Draco Malfoy had never been friends, she was still willing to see the better parts of him, but with one slammed door or punch in the face that was long gone.

Hermione’s Quest for Justice

  • Hermione starts to show how she can rally behind a person or cause.  While it is very illegal for her to rescue both Sirius and Buckbeak, she is not willing to let innocent lives go to pasture - which is very INFJ.

Again there were a lot of repeat actions from the first and second book that I chose not to repeat because they just weren’t necessary.

Goblet of Fire

“Your scar hurt? Harry, that’s really serious… . Write to Professor Dumbledore! And I’ll go and check Common Magical Ailments and Afflictions… . Maybe there’s something in there about curse scars… .”

  • Hermione continuously tries to solve problems that don’t really have a solution because she wants to not only understand her friends, but to understand their problems. Hermione is always the first to catch on to what Harry is feeling and often tells him before he can even understand it.

“You know, house-elves get a very raw deal!” said Hermione indignantly. “It’s slavery, that’s what it is! That Mr. Crouch made her go up to the top of the stadium, and she was terrified, and he’s got her bewitched so she can’t even run when they start trampling tents! Why doesn’t anyone do something about it?”

  • OK let’s talk about S.P.E.W for just a hot minute because it probably the most INFJ thing to do ever.  INFJs are known for taking up causes and not usually your average ones.  They are know for sticking up for the those who usually forgotten and who might not even seek help themselves. Hermione does this again and again. Even when everyone (including quite a few house elves) told her that house elves were not worth the effort, she kept fighting for them.

“Stop it!” Hermione said shrilly. Harry looked around at her. She was looking, not at the spider, but at Neville, and Harry, following her gaze, saw that Neville’s hands were clenched upon the desk in front of him, his knuckles white, his eyes wide and horrified.”

  • Hermione’s sense of right and wrong is on full display here while the rest of the class is amused and curious about what they are seeing, Hermione is the only one willing to step up and say what is happening is wrong.  

“Oh Harry, isn’t it obvious?” Hermione said despairingly. “He’s jealous!”

  • Hermione’s ability to read how people are actually feeling is so overlooked throughout the series. (mostly because Harry is a thick son of a gun).  She is able to read both Harry and Ron in a moment of pure chaos.

Hermione hiding the fact that she was going to the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum

  • INFJs are usually seen as mysterious, but it’s not for the reasons you would expect.  Sometimes keeping things secret for an INFJ is a way of protecting something good when they have it.

More of General Hermione behavior

  • Harry and Ron are her people, and while some may have ditched Ron completely for how he was treating both Harry and Hermione, she sticks with him and convinces Harry to do the same.  It takes a lot for an INFJ to quit on someone and it seems the same for Hermione Granger.

Order of the Phoenix

“HARRY! Ron, he’s here, Harrys here! We didn’t hear you arrive! Oh, how are you? Are you all right? Have you been furious with us? I bet you have, I know our letters were useless - but we couldn’t tell you anything, Dumbledore made us swear we wouldn’t, oh, we’ve got so much to tell you, and you’ve got things to tell us -the Dementors! When we heard - and that Ministry hearing - it’s just outrageous, I’ve looked it all up, they can’t expel you, they just can’t, there’s provision in the Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery for the use of magic in life-threatening situations”

  • It has actually been torturing Hermione that she has not been able to talk to Harry and have a deep connection while he’s been at the Dursley’s.  While the INFJ is an introvert they are the most extroverted of the introverts and crave having that deeper sort of connection with people, especially the people they love.

“Well, obviously, she’s feeling very sad, because of Cedric dying. Then I expect she’s feeling confused because she liked Cedric and now she likes Harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. Then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to Cedric’s memory to be kissing Harry at all, and she’ll be worrying about what everyone else might say about her if she starts going out with Harry. And she probably can’t work out what her feelings towards Harry are anyway, because he was the one who was with Cedric when Cedric died, so that’s all very mixed up and painful. Oh, and she’s afraid she’s going to be thrown off the Ravenclaw Quidditch team because she’s flying so badly.“ A slightly stunned silence greeted the end of this speech, then Ron said, "One person can’t feel all that at once, they’d explode.”

  • (OMFG INFJ ICONIC AF) This is one the scenes where I specifically was like omg Hermione has to be an INFJ.  She is not even close friends with Cho and has never been, but she can tell just by knowing a little bit about her and Harry exactly how she’s feeling.  INFJs can just tell.  This scene is often overlooked because Ron and Harry are thick as all get out, but this scene is such an important

“You should have told her differently,’ said Hermione, still with that maddeningly patient air. ‘You should have said it was really annoying, but I’d made you promise to come along to the Three Broomsticks, and you really didn’t want to go, you’d much rather spend the whole day with her, but unfortunately you thought you really ought to meet me and would she please, please come along with you, and hopefully you’d be able to get away more quickly? And it might have been a good idea to mention how ugly you think I am too,’ Hermione added as an afterthought. ‘But I don’t think you’re ugly,’ said Harry, bemused. Hermione laughed.”

  • Order of the Phoenix Hermione is so INFJ it hurts.  She is constantly ready all the other characters emotions and helping her friends to understand their problems.  It is difficult enough for other types to sometimes read their friends let alone strangers.

Hermione and Exam Stress

  • INFJs tend to fixate on smaller things and talk about them endlessly. Hermione is no exception.  When it comes time for the students to take their OWL examinations during Order of the Phoenix Hermione cannot stop talking about the exams and begins to aggravate the other students

Hermione and House Elf Welfare

  • INFJs while good at being able to read people and form deep connections, often think they are able to know what people or creatures want better that person does on their own.  Hermione does this when she starts leaving clothes around the common room so the house elves will accidentally free themselves.  The house elves do not want this and actually take quite a bit of offense from this act.

I’m not going to list every single INFJ thing that happens,because straight up there are too many in this book and it’s a long ass book.  So much of Order of the Phoenix is focuses on Harry and all of his angst that pretty much everything Hermione does ends up being INFJ, because she’s trying to understand and help Harry.

Half-Blood Prince

Hermione and Insecurity

  • This book really allows you to see through the cracks of Hermione Granger’s perfect life. Up until now all you’ve really gotten to see is perfect student Hermione who helps Ron and Harry solve all their problems.

Hermione and a Crush

  • While we have seen Hermione with a boy before (Viktor Krum), we haven’t really seen her deal with a real crush.  You would think that a typical 16 year old witch would have had several boyfriends at this point. Ginny as example had several within the 6th book.  This is another insight to Hermione being an INFJ.  INFJs in relationships or with people they like tend to be very protective, and whoever they care about they tend to be that person’s number one cheerleader. Hermione not only helped Ron with his Quidditch tryouts, but she also is his biggest encourager when he doesn’t even believe in himself. (Also the ideal match for an INFJ is their best friend, just saying.)

Hermione and Jealousy

  • "The only person who did not find these charms amusing was Hermione, who maintained a rigidly disapproving expression throughout and refused to talk at all if Harry had used the Muffliato spell on anyone in the vicinity”
  • INFJs tend to get jealous when others receive validation in areas that they think they deserve the validation more.  This is true for Hermione in multiple areas of Half Blood Prince.  When Harry starts receiving more credit in potions because of the help he is receiving from his potions book, Hermione becomes really defensive of her own intelligence.  When Ron starts dating Lavender, Hermione becomes very distant from Ron until he begins to validate her crush and her friendship.

Hermione and Loyalty

  • “You’ve said to us once before that there was a time to turn back if we wanted to. We’ve had time, haven’t we?”
  • INFJs are fiercely loyal to their friends.  There is not much that anyone can do once an INFJ has picked you.  They will stick by you until the bitter end.  Hermione despite the fact that they will be facing death right in the face and knows that this puts everyone in her life, including her parents, in danger is not afraid to stand by Harry.

Deathly Hallows (Hermione is an INFJ BAMF)

“No, Harry, you listen,” said Hermione. “We’re coming with you. That was decided months ago—years, really.”

  • Hermione is so fiercely loyal I can’t even stand it.  Hermione, before she even came to the Weasley house, erased her parents memories and sent them to Australia to protect them.   INFJ loyal af.

Hermione still trying to protect house elves

  • Even in the midst of chaos and the new wizarding war, Hermione is still disgusted by the treatment of house elves.  INFJs don’t just give up on causes, just like they don’t give up on friends and relationships.  Even when Kreacher treats Hermione like garbage and filth, she continues to want to protect him.

Why Hermione became so distraught when Ron left

  • INFJs have a large fear of being abandoned.  Ron had been someone that Hermione had grown to rely on and to see him walk out like that was devastating. This is why Hermione was so harsh to Ron when he got back.  
  • “Hermione launched herself forward and started punching every inch of him 329 that she could reach. “Ouch—ow—gerroff! What the—? Hermione—OW!” “You—complete—arse—Ronald—Weasley!””

Godric’s Hollow

  • While both Harry and Hermione knew the risks of going into Godric’s hollow they decide to go anyway.  They go in disguise, but when they come to the graveyard where Harry’s parents are buried they abandon all safety measures and take their time.  Hermione puts up no protest because she knows what this means to Harry. This exactly what an INFJ would do.  Many other types would convince Harry to leave or to at least put his cloak back on.  Hermione and INFJs understand that it’s important for Harry to fully be himself in the place he was born, and to visit his parent’s graves as himself.  Hermione even leaves a wreath at their grave.

Hermione and Ron finally getting together

  • INFJs do not easily fall into relationships and it takes them a long time to trust someone.  They typically fall hard for their best friend and make a long term commitment. You won’t see a lot of serial dating from Hermione or any other INFJ.

Hermione offering to go with Harry to the Forest to his death (movie only)

  • Hermione, in the movie, when she realizes that Harry is going to the forbidden forest to be killed by Voldemort, offers to go with him.  There is no good reason for Hermione to go other than to just be with her friend one last time.  This is such an INFJ move omg. When INFJs find someone is upset or is about to deal with something difficult, they desire to be there for the person.  Even if they say nothing the feel they need to be present.

Miscellaneous

  • JK Rowling has stated on multiple occasions that Hermione is very much like herself.  She has even gone to the extent of saying that she practically modeled Hermione after herself.  JK Rowling is also an INFJ. 
  • Many debate the fact that Hermione is an N because she is far too logical.  While this is not a completely illogical argument, I believe there is no way that Hermione could be a S.  Hermione is an N and INFJ for the same reason she wasn’t a Ravenclaw.  While Hermione values logic and knowledge, she prioritizes friendship and and bravery over those things.  I touched on this back during Sorcerer’s Stone, but I honestly feel like this is the biggest misconception about Hermione.

I know this post was hella long and I commend you if you go all the way through it.  I know that even after I post this there will be a lot of debate, but I had a lot of feelings on this one :D thanks for reading
