if you wanna take the mbti test, i recommend this one bc its worded very simply

also a tip: answer based on what you naturally wanna do or what you naturally prefer, dont answer based on what youre forced to do

Apparently I’m an ISTJ. Gonna need to investigate this further.

As usual, I can go either way ISTP and INTP, depending on the time of day and how I answer maybe 4 questions.

So, yeah. Pretty good test.

Still INTJ. Appears incurable. 

Took one of these tests for the first time. Got INFP, hmmm. “INFPs are one of the rarer types, accounting for about 4-5% of the population.”

okay, most of what i do re: harry potter is criticism, and hp is flawed in such a number of ways, but sometimes i just sit here and

i mean, you all have a comprehension of just how drastically harry potter changed literature, yeah? like. it revitalized it. it blew the literary scene apart. the new york times had to create a separate bestseller’s list for children’s lit just because harry potter existed. harry potter changed reading.

so many people on tumblr were born in the ’90s. when the first book came out, most of us couldn’t read. but we grew up in a world where everyone, everyone, everyone was reading harry potter, no matter how old they were; we grew up in a world where the most popular story in the entire world was a fantasy children’s book.

it’s sort of difficult to grasp, sometimes, the extent to which harry potter is not just a book. the extent to which what is basically a series of fun, interesting, and fairly good novels is such an enormous, enormous part of our lives, a cultural touchstone, a truly universal reference point, something so many people have shaped their lives around, a foundation for all of the stories we would read and watch for the rest of our lives— for so many of us, the first books we ever loved

the extent to which so many of us can’t call ourselves “fans” of harry potter, because it would like being a “fan” of, like, having lungs.

it’s not even about liking it or disliking it. it’s just a part of us.

Reblogging for Alice’s tags.

I remember reading Philosopher’s Stone in an audio reading group in year 4 or 5, making me 7-9. I remember everyone fighting for the next book in the series off the reading shelf. I remember the entire year 6 class being ordered Goblet of Fire through school but my mum didn’t have the money to get me one, & I remember sitting there re-reading Azkaban while everyone else had their head stuck in book 4. I have very few childhood memories, but the ones I do are almost all Potter.

It was so all-consuming and I haven’t felt like that about something since.
