  1. Kinda disappointed at this, I got I’m INTP in a test and got Ravenclaw in another. I don’t really like that house nor Slytherin, lol 🙁

  2. I love this. I’m an ISFP, and it was so hard to decide between Hufflepuff and Ravenklaw. I landed in Ravenklaw because I like learning and am afraid of plants, but I love this article!

    1. Gryffindor’s my Hufflepuff relative to you. I was typed ISFP by an e-friend who’s really into this kind of thing. An ISFP who values intelligence can be Ravenclaw, as it fits Fi, due to the desire to be unique that goes with it. SP types do have creativity, as shown by the ISTP. The ISFP tends to be guided by values, if the ISFP’s values align with Ravenclaw…

  3. I’m an INFP and my first house is Slytherin – second house being Ravenclaw. I would think because of our strong emotions and passion for being the best in our specific interests would make Slytherin an obvious choice. And our creativity and thirst for understanding would make Ravenclaw another obvious choice.

    1. Infps are known for being empathatic, idealistic, and generous; the likes of which tend to be hufflepuff qualities. They also tend to lack the confidence and drive associated with slytherin.

  4. I am INTP and… I love Ravenclaw of course ❤️ I completely agree with this article – my second choice is Slytherin. I do not feel Hufflepuff – I believe you need to be SF to understand this House or?

  5. I’m a infp and I could see myself in Hufflepuff or Gryffindor though I probably fit in more with Gryffindor with my outspoken nature.
