The newest wizarding generation was full of strong characters, but which one are you most like? Are you mischievous like James? Or an overachiever like Rose? We’ve had a think and made some decisions based on your personality.

If you tend to overthink things… we think you’re most similar to Albus

Albus Potter was certainly someone who tended to overthink situations. Whether he was worrying about being sorted into Slytherin or distancing himself from his father’s reputation, he often let those worries get to him. His concern about the fact he was sorted into Slytherin even had an impact on his performance at school. Yet, this is one wizard who also managed to overcome those insecurities and became a reluctant hero (ironically, that was just like his dad). If you’re like Albus, you might often find that your thoughts lead you down a rabbit hole that is difficult to get out of. Yet you do pull yourself out of it – showing great strength and resilience. Your ability to consider things in great detail can actually be a strength and can help prepare you for any situation.

If you are known to be an overachiever… you’re like Rose Granger-Weasley

When Rose started at Hogwarts, she had big dreams. As she headed off on the Hogwarts Express for the first time, she was already concerned with when she would be allowed to take her O.W.L.s.! Not only was she academic but she was sporty too. She soon became a member of the Gryffindor Quidditch team and according to her mum, Hermione, she was also determined to see how quickly she could break the Quidditch scoring record. If there is someone who liked to aim high, it was Rose. And we think you’re most like this tenacious witch if you’re an overachiever with high expectations. Whether you want to excel at your job, be top of the class or become the captain of a sports team, you’re not afraid of working hard and want to be the very best.

If kindness is your middle name… you’re just like Scorpius Malfoy

A kind Malfoy? What kind of sorcery is this? But yes, it’s true. The son of Draco and grandson of Lucius had an incredibly kind nature. From the moment he offered to share his sweets with two strangers, Albus and Rose, on the Hogwarts Express that was made clear. When Albus wanted to reassure Scorpius that there was no way he could ever be Voldemort’s son he said it his kindness proved it and that it ran through him from ‘the depths of your belly, to the tips of your fingers’. If you’re someone who values friendship and cares about the feelings of others, then we think you’re most like Scorpius. Your generosity and compassion are what plenty of people most admire about you.

If you’re not short on confidence… you’re most Polly Chapman

Polly Chapman may not have been as prominent a character as some of the others on this list but there is no doubt that you will have noticed her. She was one witch that was certainly full of confidence and unafraid to share her opinions. From asking Scorpius to the Blood Ball in an alternate timeline to making her views on Albus’ flying skills clear, she knew her own mind. We think you are most like Polly if you are unafraid to keep your views to yourself and don’t feel the need to tiptoe round sensitive subjects. Although, while Polly’s bluntness could sometimes border on cruel, we think you’re able to display a bit more tact while still making your feelings crystal clear.

If you’re always up for a laugh… you’re most like James Potter

Like his grandfather (and namesake), this was one Potter with a mischievous side. James Potter didn’t appear to take life too seriously and loved to laugh. He enjoyed a bit of good-natured teasing – especially when his younger siblings were the targets. In fact, when we first met him on platform nine and three-quarters he couldn’t help but poke fun at Albus for being worried about being sorted into Slytherin. If you are known for your sense of humour, then you’re most like James. Whether you’re pulling off a practical joke or indulging in some witty banter, you have the ability to find the lightness in any situation and are talented when it comes to making people smile.
