Introverted Sensing (Si): On the whole, Cedric lives a conventional life, even with the exciting things happening within it.  He is diligent in his schoolwork, and he takes his girlfriend to nice cafes when he can.  He is predictable enough in his day-to-day actions that both Harry and the false Mad-Eye Moody are able to guess his exact reactions to certain situations.  Although Cedric competes in both the inter-house Quidditch Cup and the Triwizard Tournament, he is almost indifferent to the attention showered upon him by either competition.  In fact, he is almost more concerned with making sure the competitions are conducted fairly than with securing his own victory.  Cedric can sometimes be suspicious when told something he doesn’t expect, as when Harry tells him what the first task in the Triwizard Tournament will entail (this was supposed to be a secret from all the champions).

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Cedric is a perfect gentleman who is polite to everybody.  He sends up a distress signal so that Viktor Krum will be rescued, even though he thinks his opponent doesn’t deserve it.  Cedric plays fair, but not in a legalistic way; twice, he tries to give Harry victories in competitions that he has won according to the rules (but due to the circumstances, Harry SHOULD have won both times, in Cedric’s opinion).  When Cedric plays Quidditch or competes for the Triwizard Cup, he isn’t doing so for his own glory; instead, he’s in it for Hogwarts and for Hufflepuff House.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Cedric is not one to stretch the truth. When his father brags about his Quidditch match (“You beat Harry Potter!”), Cedric responds by explaining why the match played out the way it did.  Cedric solves the riddle required for the second Triwizard task by searching his mind for clues rather than using external ones (he didn’t pay attention to the mermaid painting on the wall).

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): When facing a dragon in his first Triwizard task, Cedric takes a risky approach to reach his goal.  While trying to figure out what he has to do for the second task, he takes a highly unusual suggestion (taking the egg to the bath with him) when he hits a roadblock.  Once he figures out the clue, he successfully anticipates everything he is expected to do as part of the task.
