Harry Potter Character Quiz Results
Here are the potential results that you could have gotten and also some more context on the characters and their personalities.
You showed the closest resemblance to Harry Potter. He is known as the “Boy Who Lived” and is the main character of the entire series. Harry is a complex character who led the charge in the defeat of Lord Voldemort.
Harry was best known for being brave, loyal, and selfless, and he clearly showed that throughout the series. He would often go to great lengths in order to help those who he loves and always put the needs of others first. Harry was known to be extremely kind, compassionate, and someone who always stood up for himself.
In terms of negative traits, some people found Harry to be cocky and arrogant. He is also someone that was very emotional and could sometimes let his temper get the better of him.
Harry is said to be inspired by a man named Ian Potter, who used to be a childhood friend and neighbor of JK Rowling.
If you got Harry on this quiz:
Chances are that you are someone who is loyal and would do anything for your friends and family. You also put the needs of other people ahead of your own. You also likely have some leadership qualities, which leads to people gravitating towards you.
You showed the closest resemblance to Ron Weasley. Ron played an integral role in the series as the best friend of Harry Potter.
Ron is known for his bravery, loyalty, and humor. He was always making his friends laugh and kept things light. As for his academic life, Ron usually took the easy way out in terms of school work. He didn’t necessarily get poor grades but wasn’t at the top of his class either.
Ron’s worst quality is probably that he got jealous a lot, as seen a few times during the series. This was due to his lack of self-confidence and self-esteem. Ron was also someone who could be lazy, especially with his school work.
Ron is actually based on JK Rowling’s friend, Sean Harris. Sean even had a Ford Anglia car, which made an appearance during the series.
If you got Ron on this quiz:
Chances are that you are the funny one in your group of friends that is always keeping the mood up. You are also someone who would do anything to protect your family. If you would have applied yourself in school more, you would have been at the top of your class.
You showed the closest resemblance to Draco Malfoy. Draco serves as one of the main villains for the majority of the series but he ends up changing as the series progresses.
Draco is someone who is very intelligent, cunning, and also quick-witted. He became an unexpected fan favorite during the series. He was planned to be an unlikeable villain but he turned into a heartthrob instead. Tom Felton deserves the credit for that one.
Draco was very arrogant and mean in his early years. We saw him progress to someone who was a lot more civil and accepting of others in his later years. Instead of following the same path that his parents expected of him, he was able to carve his own path and became a better person because of it.
If you got Draco on this quiz:
Chances are that you are someone who is very smart and possess a lot of charisma. You are also likely more of a leader instead of a follower.
You showed the closest resemblance to Neville Longbottom. Neville started as a side character in the series but became very prominent by the end.
Neville starts the series as a shy and awkward kid. We see him grow significantly throughout the series and he proved to be one of the bravest and most loyal characters in the entire saga.
Neville is a great example of how a person can grow. Just because you are shy and awkward, that doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish great things!
If you got Neville on this quiz:
If you got him on this quiz, chances are that you are a very kind person. Herbology would also (likely) be your best subject at Hogwarts!
Fred & George Weasley
You showed the closest resemblance to Fred and George Weasley. They are the twin brothers of Ron, who were always pulling pranks.
They are best known for their senses of humor and for their love of pranks. We see their comedic efforts throughout the series.
In terms of negative traits, some of their pranks could be cruel. They were also not ones to follow any rules and could cause a lot of trouble.
Unfortunately, Fred passed away at the very end of the series. His legacy will remain forever though.
If you got Fred and George on this quiz:
Chances are that you love to goof around and don’t take things too seriously. If there is a practical joke pulled, you are the first person that gets blamed based on your history.
You showed the closest resemblance to Cedric Diggory. Cedric only played a brief role in the series but made a big impact.
He was best-known for being popular, modest, and someone who valued fair-play. He was also kind and hard-working, which made him a true embodiement of a Hufflepuff.
Unfortunately, Cedric was murdered by Peter Pettigrew. As a result, he didn’t get to live up to his full potential as an adult. It was clear that he was destined for some great things if he had lived.
If you got Cedric on this quiz:
Chances are that you are someone with a lot of friends, who excels at whatever you do!
