Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Fleur is primarily concerned with her social image.  When eating at Hogwarts, she is worried that she will gain weight and not fit into her dress robes.  She wants a socially acceptable date for the Yule Ball; not only does she try to get Cedric to ask her to the ball, but she is highly offended when Ron asks her out.  When she gets married, she has an enormous wedding with all her friends and family in attendance.  Fleur is very attractive, and shamelessly uses her charm and good looks to get what she wants, whether a date or just a favor.  Fleur is deeply affected by her inability to rescue her sister for the second Triwizard Task (insisting that she deserves no points), and she warms up to Harry and Ron when they rescue her sister instead.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Fleur dwells on details, and during her stay at Hogwarts, she constantly compares life at Hogwarts to life at her own school, Beauxbatons.  She thinks of everything she wants at her wedding, from the color of the dresses to the flowers on display.  Fleur’s wand is connected to her past; it contains a hair from her grandmother, a veela.  Fleur maintains her French identity when she moves to Britain; she cooks French food, and gives her three children French names. Fleur Delacour ESFJ | Harry Potter #MBTI #ESFJ

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): To come up with the perfect wedding, Fleur considers every possibility for every aspect of the ceremony.  She compares every color and material before settling on one choice.  She is willing to move to a foreign country to marry the man she loves, even though she clashes with some of her future in-laws.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Fleur is not nearly as shallow as some people think she is.  When her fiance is bitten by a werewolf (giving him ugly facial scars that even magic can’t remove), Fleur not only keeps her commitment to marry him, but justifies marrying him logically in more than one way.  In the Triwizard Tournament, Fleur is canny enough to use a roundabout way to get past a dragon while her male competitors are more direct about it.

  1. Pretty good, but I think your last point about Fleur’s creativity with the dragon should actually be under Ne. She considered multiple options and chose the uncommon route with that move.


  2. I just remembered that I was the one who requested typings of additional Harry Potter characters. So, I want to thank you, Andrew, for typing them. ESFJ does fit Fleur; she cares about her image, but it’s still not everything. She’s loyal and smart too. Molly Weasley is also an ESFJ, and they provide an example of how the same type doesn’t always see eye-to-eye.

    I see that Viktor Krum is also claimed; if I had to guess for him…an ISTP?
