I…I can’t do this on my own. TO THE INTERNET. (Specifically, Buzzfeed Quizzes.)
So…I got Neville Longbottom. Here’s the description:
You’re awkward and clumsy and hate being the center of attention. But you’re brave and big-hearted and people can always trust you to help them out in a bad situation.
I sort of feel like this is true. I am awkward and clumsy, and I do hate being the center of attention. I am seriously physically inept. I don’t know if I’m brave, but I like to thing that I’m trustworthy and I like to help out.
The thing is, I’m not terrible at school like Neville is. In that way, I’m very much like Hermione. I’m pretty bossy an often prepared like Hermione is too. I also think I’m very dedicated to my family, like Ron or Mrs. Weasley.
I might actually be more like Lupin, who I always pictured as being extremely intelligent, probably the most responsible out of his group of friends, and yet willing to have some fun when the occasion arises (you kind of have to with friends like James and Sirius).
Either way, I always like this part of the reading experience: identifying yourself with the characters that you read about. It adds a deeper understanding to the story, and it completely personalizes the reading experience, because each reader will identify with a different set of characters to different degrees.
So which Harry Potter characters do you identify with? Let me know in the comments!
