Harry Potter: The Sorting Hat

Which traits do you value most? Which characteristics of yourself would you want to expand and improve? These are questions the sorting hat would be considering once it has been placed on your head, and the answers would be what would place you in the house best suited to your character and your desires.

What follows is a brief description of each house, so you may know which one may suit you best.

Gryffindor – First established by Godric Gryffindor, a revered dualist and said to be one of the brightest wizards of his time. The house of Gryffindor prizes bravery, determination, chivalry, daring and loyalty above all else. The house colors are scarlet and gold, and its mascot is the lion. Critics of the house have said that its members can be arrogant and self-righteous and quick tempered. They are the most likely to get in trouble through some adventure or daring deed, but they are very loyal.

Slytherin – Only the most ambitious, resourceful, cunning and authoritarian are regarded for Slytherin. Whether or not you live up to those traits is another matter. The house colors are green and silver and the mascot is a serpent. Salazar Slytherin was the founder of the house, at one time a close friend of Godric Gryffindor until the two had a falling out over whether or not muggle-born wizards and witches would be allowed at Hogwarts. Due to Salazar Slytherin’s rejection of those not of pure blood, there have been few accepted to that house that are of mixed blood.

Ravenclaw – Founded by Rowena Ravenclaw, this house values intelligence, wit, learning, and wisdom above all else. Their colors are blue and bronze and the mascot is the eagle. Ravenclaws are often thought of as stuck up, though it is actually the opposite. They are often the first to accept someone who may be considered weird or eccentric by others. They are individualists who celebrate what makes each witch or wizard different.

Hufflepuff – The house most noted for accepting students who are hardworking, patient, and just. Its mascot is the badger and its colors are yellow and black. Many believe that Hufflepuff is the least clever of all the houses and has produced the least number of notable witches or wizards. That is far from true, as you will learn if you are sorted into this house. Hufflepuffs are not boastful, which may be the reason they are less renowned than the other houses. It is, however, the house that has produced the least number of dark wizards or witches.

Which house is best for you? The sorting hat quiz will decide, just try it on.
