Few prime flaws of Harry Potter’s character are impulsiveness and anger. But at the same time, he is liked by almost everyone. Rowling says, “He's not a cruel boy. He's competitive, and he's a fighter. He doesn't just lie down and take abuse. But he does have native integrity, which makes him a hero to me. He's a normal boy but with those qualities most of us really admire”.
Harry mostly shows modesty in spite of all his achievements. Harry is portrayed as a gifted wizard, and also a skilled flyer. Harry is also gifted with the art of Defense Against the Dark Arts and quickly learns to use the Patronus charm. Harry is also gifted with the ability to speak and understand “Parseltongue,” which is the language of the snakes.
