"It’s just a morality tale, it’s obvious which gift is best, which one you’d choose—"

The three of them spoke at the same time: Hermione said, “the cloak,” Ron said, “the wand,” and Harry said, “the stone.”

They looked at each other, half surprised, half amused.

No guys but this is so important. SO IMPORTANT. 

First we have Harry, who, like Dumbledore, would choose to revive a loved one over all else. But remember, in the story, the brother with the stone revived his loved one, who no longer belonged in this world, and therefore killed himself. 

Harry chooses death.

Then we have Ron, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, who would choose power over all else. But again, remember in the original tale the brother with the wand boasted his power and was murdered for it. 

Ron chooses death. 

And finally, we have Hermione, brightest witch of her age, who chooses logic over all else. In the story, the brother with the cloak hid from death, until he chooses to pass it on to his son and greet death as a friend

Hermione chooses life.



Person of Interest MBTI (inspired by [x]) 

Reese, ESTJ -The Guardian
Hard-working, dependable, practical. Decisive, quickly move to implement decisions. Because of their orthodox approach to life, they can sometimes be seen as rigid, stubborn and unyielding. They can at times appear critical and overly aggressive, particularly when other people fail to live up to their high standards.

Finch, INTP - The Architect 
Theoretical, abstract, quiet, reserved. Interested more in ideas than in social interaction. The world exists primarily to be analyzed, understood, explained and re-designed. External reality in itself is unimportant, little more than raw material to be organized into structural models…their designs are elegant, that is, efficient and coherent. Sometimes strike others as aloof and detached.

Shaw, ISTP - The Operator 
Action-oriented, realistic, practical. Quiet observers until a problem appears, then act quickly to find workable solutions. Interested in cause and effect, organize facts using logical principles, value efficiency. Enjoy new experiences and may often engage in thrill-seeking or even risk-taking behaviors. Not naturally emotional…may have difficulties recognizing the boundaries of what is allowed and expected in emotionally charged situations.

Root, ENTP - The Visionary 
Ingenious, alert, resourceful. Good at reading other people. Bored by routine, will seldom do the same thing the same way. Does not like to be controlled. Their love of debates leads ENTPs to take on the role of the devil’s advocate, which can sometimes lead to conflicts with others who feel like they are being intentionally combative and antagonistic. ”It can’t be done” is a challenge to an Inventor and elicits a reaction of “I can do it.”

FuscoESFP -The Performer 
Outgoing, friendly, and accepting. Enjoy working with others to make things happen. Bring common sense and a realistic approach to their work, and make work fun. Adapt readily to new people and environments. The most generous of all the types…they give what they have to one and all without expectation of reward, just as they love freely, and without expecting anything in return.

Carter, ENFJ - The Teacher 
Warm, empathetic, responsible. Highly attuned to the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. Find potential in everyone, want to help others fulfill their potential. May act as catalysts for individual and group growth. Often so interested in devoting their time to others that they can neglect their own needs. Also have a tendency to be too hard on themselves, blaming themselves for when things go wrong and not giving themselves enough credit when things go right. 

EliasINTJ - The Mastermind 
Original, driven, theoretical. Develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance – for themselves and others. Dislikes confusion, disorganization and inefficiency. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds…prefer to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead

Ingram, ENFP - The Champion 
Warm, enthusiastic, imaginative. See life as full of possibilities. Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. Often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency. Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions.
