The Hogwarts Houses Get Sorted into the 4 Energy Types

Does your Energy Type match your favorite Hogwarts House?

Calling all Harry Potter fans! Have you ever wondered what Type the Hogwarts Houses are?

Let’s look at the Hogwarts Houses through the lens of Energy Profiling.

Energy Profiling is a system based on movement. Everything in our natural world leads with one of these 4 dominant movements or Energy Types. People, pets, and even countries all express their own dominant Energy Type.

If you don’t yet know which Energy Type you are, you can discover your Energy Type with our Dressing Your Truth Before & After course.

4 Energy Types. 4 Hogwarts Houses. Let’s see if your own Energy Type matches your favorite Hogwarts House.

It’s important to note that because this is fictional content, it could go several different ways.  We’ve looked at the overall expression of the energy in each of the Hogwarts Houses and Typed them based on our experiences.  We know the love of Harry Potter runs deep among the fans, and we welcome you to experience it in your own way.

Type 1 Energy – Bright, quick, & random

Type 1 energy is naturally upward, light, buoyant, and animated. Type 1 is a high movement and it keeps things light and fun.  People who express this energy have a natural gift for ideas and the hope that it is possible. They may also have a tendency to appear random or scattered at times. They tend to have a very youthful appearance due to the animated shapes like circles and points in their facial features.

If you are a Type 1, you are like…


Common trains in the Ravenclaw house are reflective of Type 1: intelligence, wit, wisdom, creativity, originality, individuality, and acceptance.

Ravenclaws are unique and think outside the box. Plus, the Ravenclaw common room sounds like a lot of fun, and to get into Ravenclaw Tower, one must complete a riddle.

Ravenclaw is home to characters such as Luna Lovegood, Gilderoy Lockhart, and Filius Flitwick.

Type 2 Energy – Soft, subtle, & gentle

Type 2 energy is naturally fluid, flowing, gentle, relaxed, and calming. Type 2 energy has a more subdued movement that keeps things flowing and comfortable. People who express this energy have a natural gift for details and making plans. Being with this Type of person is calming and reassuring. They tend to have a dominance of S curves in their blended facial features.

If you are a Type 2, you are like…


Hufflepuff is the most underrated house at Hogwarts. But they value hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its members.

The Hufflepuff common room and dormitories focus on coziness and comfort, and in order to enter it, you need to enter the same, rhythmic tapping pattern. Type 2’s have a natural gift for being more methodical and consistent.

Hufflepuff is home to characters such as Newt Scamander, Cedric Diggory, and Nymphadora Tonks.

Type 3 Energy – Swift, determined, & confident

Type 3 energy is naturally driven toward action and big results. People who express Type 3 energy have a very swift, confident movement that pushes things and other people into action to get it done. They can be overly confident at times without enough details in place and jump in too fast. They tend to have more textured skin, chiseled facial features, and a dominance of angles in their facial features.

If you are a Type 3, you are like…


Gryffindor is known for its gold and deep red emblem with a roaring lion—fitting for their brave acts of heroism and headstrong tendencies. They value courage, chivalry, and determination.

Members of Gryffindor have no trouble taking charge and leading the way. They are passionate and learn by experience.

Gryffindor is home to characters such as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley.

Type 4 Energy – Bold, constant, & stunning

Type 4 energy is naturally constant, still, precise, exact, and structured.  People who express this Type of energy have a black-and-white, all-or-nothing perspective on most things. They can be seen as too critical and negative by others, due to their natural response to see the flaw first. They tend to have very porcelain skin and a dominance of parallel lines in their sculptured facial features.

If you are a Type 4, you are like…


Slytherin is known for being cunning and intelligent.  It’s home to the most pure-blood members, true to its all-or-nothing tendency. They take pride in breaking the rules, being their own authority, and tend to be strong leaders.

They value respect, ambition, and perfection. They’re able to analyze a situation and weigh the cost/benefit outcome.

Slytherin is home to characters such as Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, and  Lord Voldemort.
