About This Quiz

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a popular personality assessment tool based on the work of the Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung. Long before the Sorting Hat came into reality in the Harry Potter series, this test sorted people based on two alternatives in four categories. 

The first category involved determining if you were an introvert (I) or an extrovert (E.) Second, the MBTI sought to determine if you used your intuition (N) or your senses (S) more frequently to gather information. Thinking (T) and feeling (F) were clear distinctions for how someone would process information, and perceiving (P) or judging (J) dealt with how you preferred to act on that information.

In this quiz, we'll take the 16 possible outcomes of the MBTI and connect them to the houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. By doing so, we'll create a Sorting Hat that doesn't rely on mind-reading or any magic to figure out where you'd best fit in. It just requires you to take an honest look in the mirror and to answer a few questions about your preferences and the way you tend to process information.

If you're ready, take a seat, and let the sorting begin!
