A whole lot of emotions are whirling around in the land of Westeros, & I’m here to break it all down for ya! Ok, maybe we don’t have time for all that. But, what we do have time for is to explain where you fit in to the mix.
Yes! Based on your personality, we can fit you into the house you most represent! Roughly sorted out by the knowledge provided, I have put together a list of the key personality types each of the most prominent houses in the world of Westeros displays! Check it out!
1. The Starks: Facing the truth, blunt, preparation
Possibly the most popular house as it’s first introduced to us with some of our most beloved characters; The Starks are known for dealing with pain and not showing their emotions to it. They always face hardship and are not afraid of the truth. Their Motto says it all, “Winter is coming” There’s ultimately no reason to live in denial and there’s all the reason to prepare for the worst as it may happen at any moment.
Dealing with your problems may be hard for most, but not the Starks, who tend to persevere. They are incredibly blunt in what they speak, and are smart enough to look past their pitiful little problems in life and acknowledge theres always a bigger threat out there. Growing in a gloomy and difficult environment may make them appear gloomy themselves, but they take pride in facing their problems.
2. The Lannisters: Sophisticated, prideful, materialistic
Money, wealth, & appearance isn't everything.. Or is it? The Lannisters take pride in their royalty. Their riches and their appearance are the most important things to them. Thats not to say they don’t have incredible pride which is a strong characteristic, however ego may play too big a part in their decision making.
Their motto, “Hear me roar” shows they want to be looked at and embraced; possibly even envied. They are manipulative, and vengeful. Regardless, they are incredibly sophisticated and superior. They tend to hide away their truths, but theirs a great love they have for their family.. Maybe a little too much love..
3. The Baratheons: Strong, opportunists, goal oriented
The alphas of all the houses. They tend to be a little angry at times.. Okay, they are angry all the time, but they are under a lot of pressure okay! They are new to royalty and they have pride in this. They are the perfect explanation of turning into something from nothing.
They are quick to pursue their goals and will fight for them; even if it means becoming opportunists which means they will do whatever they have to even if it bends the rules a bit. But fighting is what will ultimately bring them down. Their motto, “Ours is the fury” can mean they are emotional with their decision making and impulsive. What separates them from Lannisters is the Baratheons choose power over money. Money doesn't control them, and their power helps them control others.
4. The Martells: Diverse, enduring, unconventional
When you are unlike the others, but you have all the pride in the world. A house so far from devision, you embrace gender equality and sexual preferences. welcoming people who have pride with the human race more than one specific heritage.
Embracing being bastards and have complete independence in their life. they show their strength in lust and passion and are a bit reckless in their unique way of doing things. Their motto, “Unbowed, unbent, unbroken” Shows that despite the outside world trying to break them down they stay true to their way of living and fight for their uniqueness.
5. The Tyrells: Love, beauty, flexibility
The representation of emotional support, beauty, and good nature towards others. This is a house that stays well fed, where living rich is as much from it’s agriculture as it is it’s riches. But dont’t get me wrong, they have a lot of both! Primarily ran by those with feminine energy.
This doesn't mean they are not powerful. this means they have love in your heart. Their motto, “Growing strong” is direct reflection of building their foundation of love, natural resources, and the beautiful nature that surrounds them. This is a place where they truly support each other, and they are share physical beauty like their surroundings.
6. The Targaryens: Power, uncontrollable, mystery
The true creators of the land. They may come across a bit terrifying, but they are full of passion. What’s most intense about the Targaryens is that they cannot be controlled. Not only that but they can’t even control themselves.
The irony is they represent creation, and just as equally destruction. Everyone in the land began to believe The Targaryens where gone along with dragons being extinct. But Daenerys and her newly birth dragons represents mystery, rebirth, vitality. Their motto, “fire & blood” is so self-explanatory you know exactly who they are. Destruction caused by wild passion.
7. The Mormonts: Loyalty, love, perseverance
This is a house that remains true to the loyalty they have for one another. They maybe a bit small in numbers, but they are incredibly proud nonetheless. They are family oriented people who make do with the little they have and are happy with that. They are few who tend to persevere regardless of how tricky the odds.
True love and pure heart are two key ingredients to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good. Their motto, “Here we stand” tells us they refuse to turn away from what they believe in, which shoes us their faith is something unprecedented.They are fierce people who are eager to fight, no matter what it is. True loyalty.

Their motto, “First in battle” shows their strengths are in warfare and they can truly shine when the opportunity to showcase their skills is presented.
9. The Greyjoys: Stubborn, unapologetic, intimidating
Not the friendliest of characters out of the bunch, and not really deserving of what they obtain. Yeah that’s right, they steal all their shit. To add insult to injury these goddamn viking wannabes ambush you at sea! But I digress. Stubbornness shows true commitment to a belief system.
They are unforgiving and their stormy and moody environment has shaped their personalities into something tough to deal with. But give credit where credits due; They will stop at nothing to get what they want, no matter how unethical their actions are. Their motto, “We do not sow” means they do not build, create, or take their riches. They simply walk up to you, and take what you have.
10. The Boltons: Evil, prideful, psychological
The cruelest bunch of them all. They like to instill fear into others and do not understand affection. They are threatening, dominant through terror, and torturous. They take pride in hurting others.
Their motto, “Our blades are sharp” most likely come from their most signature act of terror which is peel the skin off of their enemies with a knife… You know what? There’s not one admirable quality about these coldblooded killers. Not one! If you say you relate to them, you're a psychopath too. End of the list!
